Installing an electric fireplace suite

Electric fireplaces is a term that is used to refer to the combined products of a fire surround and an electric fire.

The first thing to check prior to installing an electric fireplace is the depth of the fireplace from the outer face of the backpanel to the rear of the fireplace which is usually a wall or the chimney, Below is a simple example of how to calculate if your electric fire can be fully recessed into the fireplace surround:

Assuming the electric fire requires a rebate of 55mm and the fire surround has a rebate of 75mm. The first thing to work out is the depth within the fire surround for the fire to be recessed into. This is calculated by 75mm less 20mm thickness of the back panel=55mm fire depth.

As the electric fire requires 55mm, the fire can be fully recessed into the fire surround even against a flat wall.

If the home has a chimney, then it is important to consider the depth within the chimney for the fire to sit into. As most chimneys offer ample recess depth the electric fire, and hence the surround rebate would not be that important if you have a chimney.

Many electric fire packages make allowances when being manufactured for installation against a flat wall with no depth, spacers can also be provided that allow the fire to sit forward with spacers filling any gaps, this allows fires to fit with less then the required clearance (check manufacturers product details for further information)

Once you are sure that the fire can be recessed fully into the fire surround you begin the installation process. Detailed instructions are available, but a brief summary is listed below.

  1. Start by bedding the fireplace hearth on the floor
  2. Position the back panel against the wall.
  3. Screw the fireplace legs (pillars) against the wall/chimney. All our fireplaces come with hidden fixing brackets, and this process is very easy.
  4. Now position the fireplace header and mantle
  5. Once the fire surround is fitted, you can simply push the electric fire into the cut out in the marble back panel and connect the electric fire socket to a to a nearby electrical plug. All our electric fires can be turned on and off from switches on the fire and do not you to turn the main electrical plug off.

It is important to always register the electric fire warrantee by filling in the form provided.
