Cambridge, Ontario – A fireplace becomes a natural focal point in any room. Residents and guests alike are drawn to the fireplace, with its promise of soothing warmth, captivating flames, and its dominant presence as a piece of furniture. Owners of the new Acadian electric fireplace from Dimplex can take advantage of all that attention devoted to fireplaces by customizing a trio of display panels in any way they may choose. The three display panels are built right into the cabinetry and are perfect for exhibiting photographs and artwork or may be left unfilled for a classic fireplace appearance.
“People really love to show off their family photos, favorite vacation pictures and their own artwork,” says Colin Stewart, Design Director at Dimplex. “The new Acadian fireplace provides an easy and beautiful way to showcase things that are important to them while giving renewed life to the look of their room. The fireplace is often the center of attention in a room. It’s a very natural and pleasing idea to be able to customize the look of the fireplace to reflect the lifestyle of the owners.” Stewart suggests that users could really tie the Acadian in with their existing décor by inserting pieces of upholstery, drapery, or wallpaper swatches in the display panels. “Owners could keep their room looking fresh by changing the panels every season or two.”
Whether the display panels are filled or not, observers will be impressed by the traditional fireplace appearance, enhanced by the rich burnished walnut finish and timeless detailing. The mantel’s graceful crown molding, elegant stepped hearth and precision mitered face trim suggest the craftsmanship of a bygone era.
While owners of the Acadian are deciding what favorite items to show in the display panels, they can enjoy the warmth and ambiance of the patented Dimplex firebox. With its traditional logs and life-like flames, the fireplace creates a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere that is bound to soothe the cares of the day.
Owners looking to chase the chill from a room will find the Acadian electric fireplace an economical and green choice. The Acadian plugs into any standard household electrical outlet yet its fan-forced heater can warm a room of up to 400 feet; just set the automatic thermostat and the Acadian will keep the room at the set temperature. And, like most Dimplex electric fireplaces, the Acadian can be used with or without heat so users can enjoy the magic of dancing flames even in warm weather.
The safe, clean electric operation means the Acadian fireplace is easy on the environment with its small carbon footprint. It operates on any standard 120V household outlet and there is no venting or other complicated installation needed. Just place it where you would like it and plug it in. Operation is very economical; average operating costs are less than two cents per hour with the flame operating without heat and seven cents per hour with the heater running.
