Price Range: $450 – $500
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a rich looking mantel electric fireplace which is neutral enough to compliment living rooms of any style.
- The Dimplex Tessa mantel is wonderfully crafted in sumptuous detail and finished in a warm amaretto finish. Graceful design details which accentuate this piece include an intricate arched header design, stepped hearth and eye catching fluted pilasters. The mantel comes pre-assembled for your convenience so you just need to position it in your desired location, insert the firebox, and plug it in to an outlet then it’s ready to use.
- Using Dimplex’s exclusive patented flame technology and pulsating embers, the firebox creates a fire effect so realistic it’s hard to distinguish it from the real thing. The 1,440-watts fan-forced heater delivers up to 4,915 BTUs to take the chill off rooms as large as 400 square ft.
- Like with all Dimplex fireplaces, the flame can be operated independently from the heater so you can enjoy the ambiance of the flame effects all year round.
- Concealed front controls give you easy access to the fireplace functions while still retaining a seamless clean look. The thermostat control allows you to adjust the temperature to your needs at the turn of a knob. The thermostat can also regulate the temperature setting based on the room temperature so you don’t need to find the right temperature yourself.
- Includes a basic On/Off remote control, allowing you to operate the fireplace from anywhere in your room. As the remote uses radio frequencies opposed to an infrared signal, you don’t need direct line of contact for it to operate.
- The mantel is only 36.8-inches wide so this fireplace could look too small in a large room where you want your fireplace to be the centrepiece.
Guarantee: 1-year limited warranty.
