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.
