Electric fireplace tiles separating

last month
last modified: last month

Hello,I moved into my home a little over a year ago and I started using my fireplace regularly about 2 months ago. One day I woke up and t the tile above the fireplace was separating. I continued to use the fireplace & the tile separation continued. I have since stopped & have the installers coming out to evaluate.Before I meet with them I would like to ask if any experts could give me some insight & questions to ask or things I should look for surviving specifically. Was this installed incorrectly or missing a layer of heat safety?Summarize: The tile above the fireplace and the entire length of the mantle (underneath) is hot to the touch including the material behind the tile.Thank you!
