What is an Opti-Myst Vapour Fireplace?
An Opti-Myst vapour fireplace creates a beautiful flame with a combination of water and electricity. The vapour fireplace just needs to be connected to power and the water tank filled with water, and it is ready to fill you home with beautiful flames and a cosy atmosphere.
These fireplaces have many names, and are often referred to as a water vapour fireplace, vapour fireplace, vapour electric fires, a hybrid fire, Opti-Myst or Mystic Fire. The authentic and beautiful flame is created with the help of water vapour and a light source.
Water Fireplace for your Home Without a Chimney
A water fireplace does not require a chimney. It is therefore easily installed and can be placed virtually anywhere. With a built-in water vapour fireplace it is possible to build in the fireplace wherever you want. It is easy to install, and the only thing that is really required for the water vapour fire is electricity.
In contrast to traditional wood burning stoves, vapour electric fires do not pollute, and requires minimal maintenance and cleaning. A vapour fireplace is therefore an eco-friendly alternative, and it creates a beautiful flame without the risk of burning.
Vapour electric fires are available with and without a heater, so they can also produce heat if desired.
Different types of built-in inserts
When considering the purchase of an insert fireplace, vapour or bioethanol, it is important to note the key differences between some of them. The most prevalent insert variants are: one sided, two sided and burner inserts. Here, we will cover these three variants so that you may know which one suits your needs the most.
The one-sided built-in insert fireplace is designed to be installed into a wall where only one of the sides can be seen, thus explaining its name. This is the most typical installment where the fireplace is used as a way to draw everyone's eyes onto the center of the wall, for example. It is a wonderful way to decorate a wall if picture frames and shelves do not do the trick well enough. This creates a very welcoming and safe flame where no safety measures are required for the vapour-based flame effects. Decorate as much as you like!
The two-sided fireplace is to some extent twice the 'fire-power'. Of course, this is due to the fireplaces being designed to be visible from both sides of a wall, making them extremely attractive to the extra visible walls in a room. For example, it may be a popular addition to a kitchen wall where the fires can liven up both the kitchen area, as well as the dining area where guests may be witness to the wonderful double-sided elegance of a vapour fireplace.
Perhaps there is already an exposed area or recess in a wall where there is simply something missing to truly illuminate the wonders of the room. For this case, the built-in burners are a simplified and flexible addition to a home, where the only thing installed is the vapour-burner itself, avoiding the additional space needed for the usual fireplace frame. This variant can be used similar to the one-sided and two-sided fireplaces, but are also to be installed directly into a table, for example. This can turn a regular dinner table into a vibrant and customisable table, capable of uniting everyone in the room and drawing all the attention into the most remarkable decoration in the house.
How does a Vapour Fireplace Work?
A vapour fireplace features the generous Opti-Myst technology, which is patented by Faber. This technology is a combination of light and water, and together it creates the beautiful flames. Even though vapour electric fires works on electric supply, they do not function as heaters, but the flames will be a realistic and decorative look in your home.
Vapour electric fires typically has a separate water tank built in. This is where the water vapour is generated through a generator. The steam is then carried out by small halogen or LED lamps that heat the air and then 'push' the steam upwards, which is what creates the realistic flames. A vapour fireplace has a very long burning time, and burns between 8-10 hours per 1 litre of water. Additionally, the water does not evaporate at the same rate as bioethanol, making it more sustainable and does not necessarily require refilling for every use. Simply fill the water tank up as much as needed and then the supply can be left on its own for hours of usage without the need for supervision or additional management.
A water vapour fire does not emit odours and helps maintain a good indoor climate since the flames are created only with electricity and water. Therefore, it is an eco-friendly alternative to a wood burning stove, all without sacrificing traditional wonders of fireplaces. By using vapour instead of conventional fuel, the fireplace becomes extraordinarily innovative and much easier to maintain. It is a perfect example of how aesthetics are never necessarily compromised in the age of becoming more aware of our environment, and ensures that everyone can still enjoy the decor of indoor flames without polluting the world. If you are not afraid to try something truly new and interesting, feel free to explore the remarkable joy of optimyst fireplaces where fire truly can be whatever one wishes it to be.
Like mentioned briefly earlier, the fireplaces are wonderful if you desire something without the need for additional amounts of maintenance and cleaning. With no soot to wipe off or burned wood and ashes to expose of, it becomes much easier and encouraging to use, not to mention the fact that no firewood is ever needed to keep this excellent fireplace going. Thanks to this, the fuel is much more affordable and requires next to no labour compared to firewood.
Different types of vapour fireplaces
If you are in need of a specific fireplace, specifically in terms of installment, then the opti myst wall mounted electric fires are perfect for a variety of installments. The mounted fireplace has always been popular as an establishment of the traditional media wall, and the optimysts are perfect for the job as well. They are especially useful since there is no need to worry about any heat, meaning that there is total freedom as to how close the fireplace needs to be to a TV or any other decoration. This goes for wall mounted and inserted fireplaces as well, as long as they are vapour-based.
Of course, no wall is necessary if you simply want a portable and easy-to-install vapour fireplace. The Dimplex opti myst freestanding fire has everything you need to place the fireplace directly on the floor, wherever it is best preferred. This is an excellent choice for those that may wish to move the fireplace around often, making it easy to rearrange furniture whenever it is needed. Contrary to an insert vapour fireplace, the freestanding variant can always be moved around to your heart's content, but can at times also be used as a replacement to insert fireplaces, but this may dependent on the size of the insert-area.
