Electric Fireplace

An optiflame fireplace with wood or stone surround is one of the many upgrades available to customers purchasing one of our new homes in Alamogordo NM. Though optiflame fireplaces are electric and don’t require as much upkeep as a gas or wood burning fireplace, there are still things needed to maintain this type of fireplace. Read below to find out how.

  1. Ensure all power coming to the fireplace is disconnected before attempting to clean or perform maintenance. Doing this important step will help lower the risk of electrical shock or unintentionally starting a fire.
  2. Liquids should not be sprayed directly onto any of the optiflame fireplace surface.
  3. Fingerprints and other markings can be removed from the mirror with a non-abrasive cleaner and damp cloth. Use a paper towel to dry the glass so streaks aren’t left behind.
  4. It’ll take a while for the light bulbs in the optiflame fireplace to be burned out. When the time does come to replace them, make sure they’re cooled down before touching so you’re not inadvertently burning yourself. We also suggest replacing all the bulbs at once so the unit isn’t opened up frequently.
  5. Extreme caution should be taken when around the fireplace to keep yourself, others and your new home safe. Make sure children and pets are kept at bay, don’t hit the glass or allow bare skin to touch the hot surfaces. Wood should never be placed in the fireplace or flammable items like batteries, curtains, clothes, furniture, linens, papers or pens.
