Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are electric fires in your range noisy?
A. All electric fires that are currently offered on our online store are fan based. It means they are not completely silent. These fires use built-in fans to blow warm air into the room. This creates a slight noise when in operation.
Q. What are the running costs of these appliances?
A. The running cost can be calculated using this formula: Running Cost = Energy Input x Your Electricity Supply Tariff. Your ‘Electricity Supply Tariff’ can be taken from a recent electricity bill, or contact your electricity supplier. For more detailed explanation, please visit section 'Electric fireplace cost' in our detailed guide to electric fireplaces.
Q. Are the fires easy to operate?
A. Yes. Electric fires and suites have switches located directly on them. Some models also feature remote controls, others have both together: switches and a remote.
Q. What’s the difference between an LED and LCD flame effect?
A. The difference is in technology used to produce flames. LCD based fires have High Definition monitors with different video scenes for you to choose from. LED, on the other hand, is essentially a light source that is used for flame imitation. For more detailed information, please visit section 'How do electric fires produce flames' in our detailed guide.
