Installation of an electric fireplace in 6 steps

by Rafał Porada 05 Feb 2024

Would you like to refresh your home with a modern centerpiece? Are you looking for something that's easy to install and doesn't require gas lines, ventilation, or construction? Look no further - an electric fireplace is the perfect solution for wall installation. In this guide, I'll walk you through the basic steps of installing this fireplace and show you how it can transform your space.

Installation Process

Before starting the installation process, we recommend checking the availability of electrical outlets at the intended location for installing the electric fireplace. If you don't have electrical wiring, consider hiring a specialist to safely prepare the electrical installation to connect the device. Another option is to choose a different location that meets the requirements and already has electrical wiring. While installing an electric fireplace isn't a complicated task, if you've never done it before or DIY isn't your strong suit, consider asking a professional to avoid unwanted mishaps and enjoy the end result. I'll add that at Fireplace Trends, we have qualified experienced staff who can assist and advise you on installation. However, if you want to be the hero in your home, prepare the necessary tools to efficiently install the electric fireplace. Alright, I'll now guide you through the most important steps related to installing an electric fireplace. To make this task easier for you, you'll also find an instructional video at the end to explain the installation steps more precisely.

Step 1: Choose a Location

Select the perfect spot in your home to install the fireplace. Make sure it's at a safe distance from flammable materials. Check if there's a power source near the installation location where you can connect your fireplace.

Step 2: Mounting Bracket

Remove the wall-mounting bracket from the back of the fireplace and place it on the wall. Use a level to ensure it's straight, then mark the holes. Use a stud finder to locate at least two spots with sturdy structural elements for mounting brackets. The remaining holes can be secured with wall anchors. Remember that this is one of the crucial steps that will affect the further installation process of the electric fireplace. Once the frame is mounted on the wall, you can move on to the next step.

Step 3: Hang the Fireplace

After marking the holes and confirming the location, attach the mounting bracket to the wall. Mount the fireplace on the exposed protrusions of the bracket and make sure it's securely in place. Add two securing elements at the bottom to safely hold the fireplace on the wall bracket. Remember, different fireplace models may have different mounting systems on the frame. However, after hanging the device on the frame, secure it as instructed in the installation manual.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

It's time to finish the fireplace. Be sure to use the included user manual as each fireplace model has different types of enclosures and additional accessories needed for finishing. Remember to mount all electrical connections with the power supply turned off and observe the highest safety standards.

Step 5: Hearth Arrangement

Another important step is choosing dedicated finishing materials that mimic the hearth of your fireplace. This depends primarily on the model of electric fireplace you've chosen. Some models may not have this type of finish. However, if yours does, install the dedicated finish according to the instructions.

Step 6: Power and Settings

Now it's time to connect the power cord to the outlet. Use the intuitive remote to adjust flame effects, heating settings, thermostat, timer, brightness, hearth lighting, and accent lighting. With just a few clicks, you can create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.

Watch a sample video where you can see step by step how to install an electric fireplace.

At Fireplace Trends, we offer a wide selection of electric fireplaces in various sizes and models. We're confident you'll find a fireplace model that meets your expectations.
