How does a Vapour Fireplace Work?
Most of the hybrid products feature the generous Opti-Myst technology, patented by Faber, who has been a dominant player in the vapour fireplace industry for many years. This technology causes a combination of light and small water drops to create the beautiful flames. According to this theory, vapour fireplaces have a separate water tank built in from which water droplets are produced via a transducer. This process occurs when small bulbs of either halogen or LED heat the air which pushes the drops up. These are reflected in the light, thus creating an inspiring flame effect.
As mentioned before, though these fires works on electric supply, they do not function as heaters, but will add a nice and realistic look with the nice flames made from electricity. On our webshop you can find the best Opti-Myst fireplaces from Dimplex and Magic fire.
In general, fireplaces according to the Opti-Myst technology have a separate water tank built in, from which water vapour is generated via a generator. The steam is carried out by small halogen or LED lamps that heat the air and push the steam upwards. This is reflected in the light and creates the realistic flame effect, which will also completely impress skeptics. With the steam boiler you get a beautiful and completely safe decorative piece for your home.
The vapour never gets so hot that there is any risk of burns if touched. Another plus point is the incredibly long burning time of an electric fireplace with water vapour. The steam boiler burns between 8-10 hours per 1 litre of water. The fireplace is also easy to install and maintain. You just need to make sure that the fireplace is plugged in and that there is enough water in the tank.
Electric fire with water vapour have the same beautiful flames as a traditional fireplace, but they are much more eco-friendly and easier to use.
Are you not sure about whether the hybrid fireplace is the right or best choice for your house? Do you appreciate cosiness, the environment or something entirely different? Of course, you must also consider your home decor – whether it is a freestanding, suspended or built-in that is chosen.
