What surround fits a Majestic SF-BI30-E fireplace to fill in the existing fireplace opening?
By Will M. on December 29, 2015
Answer:While this fireplace may be installed into an existing fireplace, no optional surrounds are offered by the manufacturer for an installation of this type.

Can you insert a wall mount electric fireplace into an actual fireplace that is not in use?
By Kevin E. on September 22, 2014
Theoretically, you could. But, the job would likely require a bit of custom work to finish out the installation to make the two fireplaces appear flush with one another. One of our Electric inserts
would likely be better for the job.

I would appreciate your recommendations of models to consider for a recessed linear electric fireplace. I have began construction of a new house and am 4-8 weeks from needing a fireplace. I had intended on getting the FMI Paris Lights, 43" ventless propane model, and may still. I like it's linear geometry and (especially) its thin-bezel that will allow stone/tile to effectively be set right up to the firebox. The house is in Texas so, heat output is not a NOT a critical factor. Some heat would be nice. I am going to mount a TV above the fireplace but, there will be a thick stone mantel below the TV.
My builder asked me to look at recessed electric fireplace alternatives.
The fireplace will have thin set brick columns on its right and left.
The span between columns is designed at 57". So, I would be looking for a firebox front width of 42" - 52", although the recessed fireplace's external rear casing could be wider. I want a linear look so, the front firebox height should be 20" or (preferably) less. What would you recommend?

While there is the Dimplex VF5452L Opti-V Duet Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace
that meets most of this criteria and is quite easily the most realistic-looking electric looking model on the market, it produces no heat and the framing width of 55.3" may be troublesome. The model that best suits your needs would be the Dimplex BLF50 Synergy Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace.
In a fully recessed or flush to wall installation, the framing dimensions are 49" w x 18 1/2" H. Per the manufacturer, this model will provide zone heat for a space up to 400 square feet.

I'm looking for a heat source for a small cottage that is one room measuring about 140-160 square feet. What would you suggest? I also want to use an old mantel that I have. Can you recommend a fireplace that would be suitable for such a small space?
By Will M. on November 6, 2015
Most all electric fireplaces with a heating element will be able to heat the space you describe. 1500 watts equates to 5,000 Btu, which equates to electric fireplaces having the capability of heating a space of 143 square feet.
The Dimplex BFSL33 Slim Direct Wire 33" Electric Firebox
would be an excellent choice, so long as this works well with your mantel dimensions.

Of the Dimplex electric fireplace inserts you have, which one uses electric bulbs? Can it be the Dimplex DF 3015?
By Will M. on December 30, 2015
Answer:The DF3015 does indeed use LED lighting.

If I hand an electric fireplace on the wall, can I also hang a flat screen TV above it?
By Will M. on July 8, 2015
Answer:So long as the mantel clearances are followed in the instructions for whichever fireplace you choose in addition to the air space clearances provided by the television manufacturer, this will not be an issue.

I'm looking specifically for a double-sided sleek fireplace. Do you carry those?

Do you have an electric fireplace that can be seen from both sides?
