  • Product Overview

    The Dimplex Torchiere Electric Fireplace, also known as the Dimplex SEP-BW-4217-FB, improves your indoor air quality while providing supplemental heat for up to 400 square feet. The Dimplex Torchiere Fireplace is an excellent solution for allergy- and asthma-sufferers or anyone who wants to enjoy cleaner, healthier air. Using Purifire air treatment technology, the Torchiere fireplace filters airborne allergens and pollutants out of the air. In addition, the patented three-dimensional flame can be used with or without heat for comfort and ambiance all four seasons.

    Product Highlights

    • Elegant Design: The Dimplex Torchiere Burnished Walnut Electric Fireplace features beautiful carved details, recessed panel inlays, and sculptural pilasters in a rich burnished walnut finish.
    • Easy Installation: This Dimplex electric fireplace requires no piping or venting. Simply install the bi-fold doors onto the firebox, position the fireplace into the mantel and plug into a nearby outlet.
    • Non-Heat Option: Operate your Torchiere Electric Fireplace with heat during cold winter months or with flame only during the rest of the year for an inviting ambiance every season.
    • Reusable Air Filter: The washable Purifire air filter should be cleaned or replaced once a year. To clean the filter, remove dirt and debris and clean with water.
    • Overheat Protection: In the event that the fireplace overheats, the heater fan will automatically shut off and will not resume operation until the power is manually reset.

    Enjoy Healthy, Heated Air

    This electric fireplace features an industry first: a comprehensive air treatment system. The Dimplex Purifire system uses a high-efficiency air filter to trap airborne particles as small as 1 micron. The Purifire air treatment system effectively filters the air of an average size room four times per hour, ridding it of symptom-aggravating mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and dust. The Dimplex Torchiere Burnished Walnut Fireplace offers continuous Purifire operation at low and high speeds and can be turned on and off with the remote control.

    Create the Perfect Fire

    This Dimplex Multi-Fire electric fireplace allows you to control the ember bed effects and adjust flame speed and appearance to create the perfect atmosphere with the simple press of a button. Using the remote control, you can set your ideal flame speed and select the slow start option. In this function, the flames and embers automatically simulate the appearance of a starting fire for 30 seconds and eventually build into an intense, realistic fire. You can conclude with the fading embers function, which dims the ember beds to resemble a fire going out. The fading embers timer can be set for 1, 5, or 10 minutes.

    Dimplex electric fireplaces use patented flame technology to produce a life-like flame effect. This innovative flame effect combines the appearance of realistic burning logs with the movement of a blazing fire to achieve a three-dimensional flickering flame. The hand-finished LED logs display a natural, inner glow during heat operation to resemble real burning wood.

    The electric firebox contains four light bulbs underneath the log set that generate the pulsating ember bed and firelight flicker for the illusion of a traditional wood fire. Additionally, two 15-watt bulbs illuminate the log exterior to accentuate the incredibly realistic Dimplex Multi-Fire.

    Reduce Environmental Impact

    The Dimplex Torchiere Walnut Electric Fireplace produces 5,120 BTUs of supplemental heat for up to 400 square feet using a fraction of the energy consumed by gas fireplaces. With all-electric operation, this energy-efficient fireplace heater operates for just pennies a day. Simply plug the heater into a standard 120-volt household outlet and use it in place of or as a supplement to your central heating system.

    In addition to reducing heating costs, the Torchiere Electric Fireplace also helps protect the environment. While wood-burning fireplaces release harmful pollutants into your home and the environment, Dimplex electric fireplaces distribute heat with zero ozone emissions.

    Multi-Functional Remote Control

    With a digital display and user-friendly symbols, this remote control makes operating your Torchiere Fireplace heater a breeze. The deluxe remote control displays the current room temperature and your desired temperature. In addition to allowing you to set an ideal room temperature, the remote includes a light dimmer that controls the brightness of the interior firebox lights. With the multi-functional remote control, you can also adjust the flame speed and Purifire settings with the touch of a button. Plus, it notifies you when the batteries need to be replaced.

    The digital transmitter controls your fireplace from 50 feet away. The remote signal can pass through walls and most obstacles without directly pointing at the heater. The manual control panel, located on the front of the firebox, contains an initialization button that synchronizes the remote control with your Dimplex Torchiere Electric Fireplace. Once you press the button, the remote control sends a code of 243 independent frequencies to the heater’s circuit board to prevent interference with other units.

    Various Safety Features

    To prevent damage to your heater and to help you and your family avoid harm, the Dimplex Torchiere Electric Fireplace is equipped the following safety enhancements:

    • An automatic switch turns the heater off to prevent the fireplace from overheating.
    • The firebox display glass remains cool to the touch to eliminate the danger of burning your hands.
    • The digital remote control includes a secure child lock tab on the battery cover.

    LOVE IT!!!!

    Comments about Dimplex Torchiere Electric Fireplace:

    I received my Dimplex Torcheire last week and I cannot be more pleased!
    Assembly was so quick and easy, took less than an hour tops! Everything needed was included, except the screwdriver and/or wrench used. Every piece fit together great and the overall quality and appearance of the product when fully assembled, took my breath away and has become a fabulous addition to the decor of my Living room!!!
    The flame effect is so real, you would not know it was an electric unit!!

    When I first opened the box, I noticed it was a darker wood tone than how it appears online, but it's beautiful. As it is still primarily Summer/Fall season, I haven't had a chance to run the heater yet, but it's nice to be able to still enjoy the ambiance of a fire in the evening.
    I am very pleased with this unit and hopefully soon will invest in another one for my bedroom!

    I also want to add how wonderful the Customer Service at Sylvane was when I first called and inquired about a discount. I was pleasantly pleased with the amount quoted me, which was the LOWEST by far that I had come across with any other shopping site offering the same product. They were professional, polite and genuinely friendly and I will most definitely be shopping with them again!

    Thank You Sylvane for an extraordinary shopping experience and a fabulous Electric Fireplace!!
    I couldn't be happier!!
