Looking for a wall mounted fireplace? Electric Fireplaces Direct has a wide selection of wall fireplaces in a variety of finishes, sizes and prices, from top brands such as Dimplex, Classicflame and Napoleon. Because there are so many wall mount choices, it may help to narrow your options by answering the following questions:
Do you want to mount the fireplace on the wall surface or cut into the wall? Most wall fireplaces either hang on the wall surface or insert into the wall, and very few offer both options. One notable exception to this is the Dimplex Synergy 50″ Wall Mount Fireplace, which enables both surface-mount and in-wall installations. Surface-mount wall fireplaces are usually 4″ to 7″ deep, while in-wall models are generally deeper. Surface wall mounted fireplace options are popular because they are much easier to install and can be moved to another room.
Would you like the fireplace to produce heat, or do you only want the flame effect? If you only want to use a wall mount fireplace for its aesthetic appeal, it is typically less expensive to purchase a flame-only model. If you are looking for a wall mount that produces heat, you should determine the size of the room you wish to heat and make sure that the model you purchase can heat the space. Most wall mount fireplace models can comfortably heat up to 400 square feet.
Do you plan to place a TV above the fireplace? This is a question you should ask if you plan to purchase a wall mount that produces heat. According to one of our wall mount manufacturers, Dimplex, if you do prefer a wall mount that produces heat and also plan to place a TV above the fireplace, you will need a model that releases heat from the front or bottom. Placing a TV above a wall mount fireplace that releases heat from the top could harm the TV over time.
Do you prefer a traditional or contemporary style? Answering this question will definitely narrow your choices. If you are looking for a more traditional design, look for wall fireplaces that feature a log fuel bed, wood framing or traditional flame effects, such as the Dimplex 30″ Linear Electric Fireplace. If you prefer a modern, contemporary style, you should consider black or silver finishes, colored flames and backlights, and glass, stone or sand fuel beds.
