Looking for a great looking electric fireplace but don’t want to break the bank then the NEW Napoleon NEFL50FH is for you. Watch the video below for details on how to install, operate and some of the features of this electric fireplace.
Napoleon NEFL50FH Linear Electric Fireplace
A replacement for the popular EFL50H, the NEFL50FH has a range of new features most importantly a much more impressive LED flame effect with brighter LED’s. The fireplace comes with a remote control which, among other functions, controls the amount of Blue, Orange, or a combination of the two colour flames. Moving the vents to the front (from the top) enables to the fireplace to be mounted closer to wall or recessed further into the wall as well as distributing heat more evenly throughout the room.
Reasonably priced for what you get. Bright LED flame effect consumes less electricity than equivalent incandescent bulb versions such as the Dimplex BLF50. Can be operated with or without heat so effectively more useful all year round. Wall mounted and plugged in or recessed into the wall and hard wired this fireplace can be mounted just about anywhere. The display conveniently appears after you make changes then disappears after a few seconds.
Not many. The screen is quite reflective so acts like a mirrored surface. Doesn’t feel quite the same build quality as the equivalent Dimplex.
Best value for money electric fireplace 2016. Not as realistic or versatile a flame as the Dimplex equivalent but at roughly half the price the NEFL50FH fireplace is hard to overlook. We recommended this electric fireplace for large family rooms, basements, bars, restaurants and meeting rooms.
2017 UPDATE – newer model
Napoleon introduced a new model in 2017 that essentially replacement for the Napoleon NEFL50FH. We highlighted the highly reflective glass screen and it is precisely this that Napoleon have changed in the newer model. The Napeoleon NEFL50FH-MT features a mesh screen and a matte surround but is otherwise exactly the same as the NEFL50FH, just in our opinion a better look.
