We were given this Electric Fireplace as a gift, which we haven't really used much, so i will update as it becomes part of our home. I do think the electic cost will be high, but we will give it a try. Maybe use only on those special cold nights.
The fireplace mantel has an espresso finish with traditional styling. It measures 37.4"H x44.3"W x 12.8"D, and is very realistic looking.With a 25" widescreen firebox and a realistic wood burning flame, it can heat up to 300sq ft. It also has a firebox touchpad remote control and a fixed tempered glass front. The sleek stying makes for a desirable piece for your room. It does have a weight of 75 lbs, and once placed you may not want to move it. The fireplace also comes with a 1 year in home warrantee, for parts and labor.
It does seem to be a nice addition to our room, and i do hope we get use from it.
