I build / repair / maintain fireplaces for a living. I bought this to build a prototype surround to sell retail.
I recently built a fireplace for a bar. They wanted gas, when I explained why it was a bad idea and that electric doesn't look bad anymore, they said ok, but make sure it's top notch. So I bought a top notch electric fireplace costing 900.00.
IT WAS HALF AS GOOD AS THIS ONE!
This one is crazy good looking! the controls have more features than models that cost 3x as much. I'm not even joking!
I thought I was using the one I bought for a prototype then I was going to buy higher end ones. NOPE! I'm sticking with this.

It doesn't have to be used only with their mantels they have to say that legally. Yea you can stick it into your fireplace. No you don't have to keep your firewalls in. No you don't need to have a flue. (You'd do very well to stuff some insulation up there to be honest, then caulk a piece of metal on the top to seal it from rain or it may rust the electric one.) Your biggest problem will be the gap, for that your easiest fix will be get a roll of metal flashing material thick enough to cover the gap, paint it black, snip it to size, and just use caulk to "glue" it around the surround to hide the gap.fbipeeper on Oct 20, 2013

They have to say that legally but I have one sitting on a dresser. It's not UL listed that way but yes, it does just fine.fbipeeper on Oct 20, 2013
Hello customer1016, The outside of the unit is cool to the touch. The top lip, where the blower is, can become hot, but not burning hot. Thank you for your question.

Why does this item appear in a search for "timer" but NOT in a search for "fireplace"????!!!!suzyfromohio on Aug 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.
This need to get air from the top so you wouldn't be able to do that.
Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 17, 2013
Yes you can you just have to make sure the top can get air. Make sure you get the right contractor. You'll violate the listing on the unit though so if something goes wrong the manufacture isn't liable. That being said I'd stick this in a wall no problem.fbipeeper on Oct 20, 2013
