1. Consider the Manufacturer

The manufacturer is the first (and most important) factor to consider. Your manufacturer determines the quality of product that you receive.

That is why Brick Anew has partnered with Dimplex, the leader in electric fireplace innovation since 1995. Dimplex produces the highest quality electric fireplaces you can find with the most realistic flame effects.

Dimplex is constantly innovating to produce technology that surprises and amazes the team at Brick Anew. We offer the latest fireplace inserts and log sets to bring you electric fireplaces with gorgeous designs and lifelike flame effects.

Dimplex stands behind their work and offers a two-year limited warranty on most products. They craft lifelike log sets and produce perfect-fit accessories to give a finished look to each of their products.

If you’ve decided that Dimplex is the right manufacturer for you, also consider your Dimplex distributer.

Buying Dimplex products through third-party sources like Amazon can be risky. Dimplex may not authorize those sellers so you may not receive the customer service you deserve.

Brick Anew is an authorized Dimplex distributor so you are guaranteed your full warranty and assistance with troubleshooting, design advice, installation queries, or any other concerns you have.

2. The Different Types of Electric Fireplaces

You can buy electric fireplace inserts with a firebox and log set to go inside or just the log set if you have a preexisting fireplace.

Our fireboxes are beautifully designed with customizable features so they fit perfectly into any space.

You can choose between five size choices and between herringbone brick and weathered concrete as your firebox style. You also choose whether you want oak logs, birch logs, or fresh cut logs in your firebox.

The fireboxes come with accessories to give your firebox a specific feel. You can add fireplace doors for a classic wood-burning look or a solid glass front for a gas firebox look. The smaller sized fireboxes have trim pieces in stylish black finishes that you can add to make your project look fully finished.

Your firebox can be installed into a preexisting fireplace or you can build a simple frame around the firebox. Each firebox is just over 12 inches deep. This allows for both a true-firebox feel and a simple framing process.

Each of the fireboxes can be direct-wired. We recommend this for the maximum heat output. However, if you prefer, you can add a plug kit to your order to keep installation simple.
