An Essential Buyers Guide for Opti-Myst Water Steam Fireplaces 1

The decision to purchase an Opti-Myst water vapor fireplace is an easy one—and also somewhat difficult.

It’s easy because the attractive looks, high quality, and value water vapor fireplaces can add to your home are unquestionable.

It’s difficult because there are many choices to make in choosing just the right Opti-Myst fireplace for your home.

This guide will walk through those choices and help you to narrow them down until only one choice, the right choice for you and your home, is left.

We’ll be answering the following questions in this guide:

Are there models that fit a small budget?

What product goes best with my space/decor/room?

What if I need a fireplace that serves as a heat source?

An Essential Buyers Guide for Opti-Myst Water Steam Fireplaces 2

To help you choose the ideal Opti-Myst fireplace for your needs, we have three fireplaces for your consideration.

We’ll show you the best small budget model, three fireplace styles, and a water vapor fireplace that, yes, can serve as a heat source as well as an attractive feature in your home. 

Types of Opti-Myst Water Vapor Fireplaces

Built-in Firebox - A built-in water vapor fireplace needs a home in your home—provided by fitting it into one of your walls. There’s even a model that can be two-sided, allowing for a see-through fireplace.

Cassette - The cassette-style fireplace is quite versatile. It can be placed just about anywhere you can hardwire it into your 120 V electrical system. 

Hearth Inserts - These are made to convert an existing fireplace to a water vapor fireplace. They install into your existing hearth, giving it a fresh new look.

Let’s take a look at some specific models of each, and in the process, answer those questions as promised.

1 - The Opti-Myst Pro 1500 Built-In Firebox

The Opti-Myst Pro 1500 Built-In firebox is the top-of-the-line built-in style we carry. It’s the largest built-in firebox—and the most impressive—available.

Important Features of Opti-Myst Pro 1500 Built-In Firebox

Revolutionary technology - Opti-Myst technology produces a lifelike flame and smoke effect using nothing more than a fine mist of water.

Versatile placement - The removable backer panel allows you to create a two-sided fireplace, giving you a double-sided and see-through viewing.

Customizable looks - You have two options for making the Pro 1500 truly unique. There are spacers included with your purchase to change the width of the flames and, if you desire, a variety of different “log” styles to add to the fuel bed for a more realistic look.

How the Pro 1500 Compares With Our Other Models

Supplemental heat source - The Pro 1500 has a fan-forced heating unit that can warm up to 400 sq. ft. Most Opti-Myst models don’t produce heat; only the Pro 1500 and the Pro 1000. The Pro 1500 heat source only heats in one direction, even if installed as a double-sided fireplace.

Largest viewing area - With a visible firebox of 62 in X 17.5 in, the Pro 1500 is the largest water vapor fireplace available from Opti-Myst. The sleek, modern look can take a dull wall of your home and turn it into a feature without adding anything more.

2 - Opti-Myst 500 Water Vapor Fireplace Cassette

A fireplace cassette can be installed almost anywhere. You don’t need a hearth or a hole in the wall. Just a 120 V electrical supply. When your fireplace runs on water, it costs just pennies an hour to enjoy all year long.

The Opti-Myst 500 cassette is only 20 in long, making it ideal for smaller spaces and unique installation. We’ve seen them installed in window seats, indoor planters, and even, as the photo below shows, tables.

It’s the perfect option for those concerned with matching a fireplace to their existing decor, as you’re only limited by your imagination and budget.

Important Features of Opti-Myst 500 Cassettes

Completely safe - Your fireplace may be hanging out in public, but it’s not presenting any public safety hazards. The innovative water mist technology produces no heat, no fumes, no smoke, making it perfectly safe for pets, children, and your home. 

Easy to maintain - Opti-Myst fireplaces and fireboxes all need routine cleaning and maintenance every two weeks. In between, all you need for a roaring fire is to fill the water tank with filtered tap water, and you’re good to go. 

Handy remote control - Each unit comes with a battery-operated remote that can turn the unit on and off, control the height of the flames, and adjust the volume of the realistic “crackle” sound technology. 

How the Opti-Myst 500 Cassette Fireplace Compares With Our Other Models 

Compact size - At only 20 in length, the 500 Cassette is the smallest Opti-Myst model available. This gives it a unique versatility in installation options and allows you to fit it into almost any room of your home. 

Versatility - The beauty of Opti-Myst Cassettes is you can connect as many as you like. Imagine the perfect fireplace for your home - its length, location, one side or two, or how about three? You can build it by connecting multiple 500 Cassette units. It’s your dream come true.

Let your mind go wild and, as the saying goes, play with fire. Then, visit our online catalog to read reviews and more information on this highly versatile, unique, family-friendly cassette fireplace.

3 - Opti-Myst Open Hearth Fireplace Insert

For both the budget-conscious and those with more traditional decor, the Opti-Myst Open Hearth Fireplace Insert may be the answer to your heart’s desire. 

At under $1000, the Open Hearth Insert is one of the least expensive Opti-Myst options. 

Since it can be inserted into any existing hearth or faux mantle, it can give you the Opti-Myst revolutionary green energy, clean energy water vapor technology no matter how low-tech your home might be. 

Important Features of Opti-Myst Open Hearth Fireplace Insert

Long-lasting flames - the easy-to-fill water tank will operate for 14 to 16 hours before needing a refill of filtered water.

Hand-finished details - The metal grate, logs, and embers are all hand-finished, with the logs and embers molded from real burnt wood, giving it a realistic look that’ll fool your family and friends.

How the Opti-Myst Open Hearth Fireplace Insert Compares With Our Other Models

Freestanding - There’s no need for construction crews or messy renovations. The unit stands on its own and can be placed into many existing fireplaces or into products made for electric fireplace units, such as entertainment centers and mantles.

No hardwiring required - The other Opti-Myst models we’ve featured here all need to be hardwired into your home’s electrical system. The Open Hearth Insert’s power supply, however, simply plugs into any standard wall outlet.

With its stylish, traditional fireplace looks, lifelike flame and smoke technology, low price, and ease of installation and use, the Opti-Myst Open Hearth Insert Fireplace may just be the way to go to bring a water vapor fireplace into your home.
