How would you like to have the warm ambiance of a wood-burning fireplace without the associated smoke, ash, and safety risks? Modern homes require modern solutions, and the Dimplex Opti Myst Pro 1000 fireplace is one of the most realistic electric fireplaces you can buy.
Even better, the Opti Myst Pro 1000 Series is a top-of-the-line model that comes with an electric heater. Not only do you get a realistic electric flame, but you can also create a cozy-zone in the room as well.
Designed and patented by Dimplex, the Opti Myst 3D flame technology uses a fine stream of mist and LED lights to mimic the movement of actual flames. Unlike other fireplaces that use reflected or projected light technology, Opti Myst flames are so realistic that you can mistake them for a real gas or wood fire.
The 46-inch Dimplex Opti Myst Pro 1000 fireplace brings the best of this revolutionary new technology right into your home. Here are four practical benefits you’ll love when you install the Opti Myst Pro 1000 in your home.
Benefit 1 - Realistic 3D Flame Technology
Dimplex’s patented Opti Myst technology is the undisputed leader of electric flames. Just watch the close-up video below to see how mesmerizing and realistic the faux ember bed and rising flames are.
The first thing that hits you is just how authentic the flames look.
In a real fire, burning plasma from a gas or log fire causes the flames to dance around and rise in unexpected ways—Opti Myst technology does a great job of replicating this.
Opti Myst flames use a very fine mist that’s generated from water using ultrasonic technology. Special LEDs reflect light from the rising mist, creating the flame effect. The result is a hyper-realistic undulating flame that is almost indistinguishable from an actual fire.
Cheaper electric fireplaces use reflected or projected light to create their flame effect. These cheaper methods use halogen or LED lights to cast yellow and orange light on an ember bed, while special mirrors bounce the light around to create the illusion of heat.
Other electric fireplaces use a rotisserie-style rotating rod with angled mirrors to imitate moving flames, but they often still look fake and tacky. Some even go all out on a contemporary look featuring a glass or rock media bed alongside blue flames.
In the following table we compare the features and benefits of Opti Myst technology to others in the industry.
|Feature||Opti Myst Flame||Other Flame Technology|
|Flame||Fine mist with reflected LED light. This creates the dancing effects of a real flame as it rises and moves in the air||Uses either lights and mirrors to create the illusion of a hot ember bed or use holographic (projected) 3D flames|
|Fireplace media||Fake logs create a realistic ember bed. There is the option of using custom media to personalize the fireplace too||Wide variety of media available for a contemporary look. These include glass crystals, rocks, and fake logs|
|Mist generation||Ultrasonic technology, which uses high-frequency sound to create tiny water droplets. It is completely silent and uses very little energy||Some models evaporate water to create vapor. This isn’t as safe, environmentally-friendly, or energy-efficient as creating mist|
|Flame movement||Authentic flame movements look and behave in a similar way to real flames as they dance and rise into the air||Reflected light, projected flames, and rotating mirrors are all repetitive and soon lose their magic by becoming too predictable|
The Dimplex Opti Myst Pro 1000 even comes with a speaker that produces realistic fire crackling sounds to complete the experience. Choose the sound and volume you want to suit the ambiance of the room.
Expert Tip: If you choose to install the Dimplex Opti Myst Pro 1000 fireplace as an open hearth or freestanding unit, please ensure that there are no drafts that could affect the movement of the flame clusters.
Benefit 2 - Safe Flame That Remains Cool to the Touch
Like all electric fireplaces, the Opti Myst flame produces no heat. It consists of light reflected by tiny water droplets—literally fire made out of water.
If you have kids or pets, this kid-proof fireplace might be the only one you can safely install indoors. With almost no danger of fire or burns from hot surfaces, you can even use the Opti Myst Pro 1000 in your bedroom.
The Opti Myst has a fan-forced heater—this means it uses an electric fan to force air through a heated element and out into the room. As such, the fireplace’s vents can get hot when the heater is operational.
However, the included glass coverings (for the front and back of the fireplace) will prevent the risk of burns when touched.
Another advantage of having an electric furnace is that you don't need ventilation for air and smoke. The Opti Myst Pro 1000 only needs water and electricity to operate and it creates no harmful byproducts.
For added safety, the unit has overflow sensors that turn off power when they detect excess water. It also has analog manual switches in case of electric malfunction.
If you’re worried about excessive humidity, don’t be. The Opti Myst Pro 1000 produces the equivalent moisture of one adult human breathing. Unless you have several of these units in your house, excess moisture shouldn’t be a problem.
Did you know? You can even mount a TV above your Opti Myst Pro 1000 electric fireplace.
Expert tip: If you want to change the look of your Opti Myst Pro 1000, you can use custom media instead of the regular ember bed. Common options include inner glow log sets, rock media, and driftwood media.
Benefit 3 - Effective Supplemental Heating
The Opti Myst Pro 1000 is one of a few electric fireplaces that come with a heater. The cheaper fireplace cassettes produce a decorative electric flame but provide no heat.
The heater in your Opti Myst Pro 1000 lets you enjoy a warm and cozy room without turning on central heating. The fan-forced heater puts out 4981 BTUs of supplemental heat, which is enough to cozy up a room of up to 400 square feet in size.
In fact, using the Opti Myst Pro 1000 for zone heating can save you money in energy costs. Running this fireplace on heater mode will only cost you a few pennies per hour.
You can also run the flame effects with the heating off when you don’t need to heat the room.
Expert Tip: If you’re looking for a better heating function, Dimplex also produces electric fireboxes that are rated for up to 1000 square feet. These use infrared heating and include the IgniteXL Series, the Sierra Series, the Winslow Series, and the PRISM Series.
Benefit 4 - Modern Fit-And-Forget Installation
Gas and wood furnaces require frequent cleaning and servicing. You also have to replenish the fuel, remove ash, and arrange for annual maintenance checks.
An electric fireplace such as The Opti Myst Pro 1000, on the other hand, produces clean, emission-free flames and heating without any hassle.
The Opti Myst Pro 1000 allows you to hardwire its electricity supply directly to the mains instead of having to plug it into a wall socket. You can also plumb in the water supply to avoid having to refill the tank all the time.
With this kind of installation, you can go all year with minimal maintenance.
If you opt not to plumb the water in, a single tankful of water will last you 8–12 hours of continuous operation.
Another important advantage of the Opti Myst Pro 1000 is that it’s completely silent and has no odor. With the exception of the heating fan, it has no moving parts. These advantages allow you to get creative with installation.
There are a few more ultra-modern and unique features that come with the Opti Myst Pro 1000.
- You get a remote control for heat levels, flame effects, standby mode, and other features
- You can join two or more units for large rooms
- When you combine multiple units, you can use one remote for all units
- The speaker produces the hyper-realistic sound of a crackling fire
All these features make the Opti Myst Pro 1000 from Dimplex the ultimate electric fireplace to buy for your home.
