- Flame effect free standing electric fires..anything recommended?
Yes ..I know they’re tacky but we live in a rented property and always loved real fires which is no longer an option. Just wondered if anyone had experience /recommendations for a freestanding unit preferably well under £200. It’s more for the missus to add a little coziness..otherwise I’d just play a real fire video on YouTube and sit the tablet next to the fan heater!Posted 4 months ago

I wanted a wood burner in my summer house but given we only use it occasionally I didnt want the faff of lighting and extinguishing it each time. I bought an opti myst and it is pretty good and gives off plenty of heat straight away.Posted 4 months agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber

This is basically what they are.
Ours was about £65 from b&q. It looks pretty fake, but not in a horrible way, there’s some glowing plastic coal/wood and a scrolling cylinder projecting ‘flames’ up the back over a 1800W fan heater. Enough to trick the dog anyway! And is a useful way to heat the living room in winter without having to centrally heat the rest of the house all evening. And we already had a fake fireplace without a chimney.
Just go to B&Q and pick the one you like the look of.Posted 4 months agokcalSubscriber
Bought a £50 B&Q one to go in a tenant’s house. They’re delighted. Looks tacky but fits the void, and safer than the gas fire it replaces. I looked at the smoke and flame effect ones but they’re north of £300.Posted 4 months ago
