  • YES!

    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.

  • Exactly as stated!

    You would think that this would be a lot more expensive. Looks like real fire. I have had three people over and all three of them thought it was. Very pleased.

Questions & Answers

Get your product questions answered right here.
  • Have an Ashley Mahogany Gel sterno Fireplace. Can this unit replace the existing insert?

    • Hello Dreamcruise, this is designed to be used with Real Flame Fireplace Mantels only. Thanks for shopping with us.

  • If the bulbs cannot be replaced, how long do they last? Do you just throw it away when they burn out? Dumb design?

    • Hello clairec, the LED bulbs featured in this firebox are maintenance free and should not require replacing. The LED bulbs have an average life span of approximately 75,000 hours. If you ran your fireplace continuously at its highest setting, they would last approximately 8.5 years. Thanks for shopping with us! L.B.

  • I have a wood cabinet with an inside opening dimension of 26 1/2 inch wide, 21 inch height, and plenty of room in depth. This cabinet sits on the floor and is part of a Travel trailer. Is this model firebox appropriate for me?

    • Hello genscrollart, the heat will escape the unit through the vent on the top, so you'll want to be sure that there is enough space at the top of the cabinet. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

  • Where does the heat exit? Is the grill on the top just for venting of the unit? Is there heat output at the front of the unit, as in an actual fireplace?

    • Hello TO, there is a vent at the top of the product which outputs the heat. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • I have a non-operational firebox that was closed in. The opening for the firebox is 21 1/2W X 23H X 12D... it appears that the unit is tapered from front to back with the back of the unit appearing as if it is NOT the same width as the front at 23.65in...- I am wondering if I could fit this unit into my opening... and how much of the front would stick out from the firebox? Does anyone have the exact measurements for this unit? Or could you tell me how far out it would sit from the front of the firebox? Thanks very much!

    • Hello Doublebogey, this is tapered. The back is 18 inches wide. I think this would stick out of your fireplace about half way. Have a great day!

  • Can I put this into a built in entertainment wall unit ?

    • Hello RudiG, you'll need to ensure that the top and sides are open to allow the heat to escape. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

  • If you did insert into a wall, how much space or room would you need for the top opening vent? Is the front covered or just a screen?

    • Hello klg1070, this is not designed to be installed into a wall, it would pose a fire hazard as it heats up! You can place them on a flat surface but the sides and back need to be open so as to allow the heat to emanate from the unit. Some people put them inside of those pre fab fireboxes with 8-10 inches on the sides and back for venting. I have one of these and I have it installed on the lower shelf of my TV stand. It is beautiful. It sits on a wood surface about 4 inches off the carpet. I am going to put ceramic tile down as it gets warm. We do sell a wall mount. Please see, Item #: 15869871. These are a beautiful solution to a room without a fireplace. You will love it. Thank you for shopping with us. Rochelle B

  • Can you use this without the heat function?

    • Hello villageperson21, yes, you can use this without the heat function. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

    • Sure but why would you want it without heat. It's only a firebox and has no frame.

    • This was a helpful question and answer as I am looking to build a wall unit and want the ambience of the fireplace, but do not NEED the heat.

  • Is the "fire" produced by a light bulb and if so can it be replaced when it burns out?

    • Thank you for contacting us napccrn. It is produced by a line of LED light bulbs, they cannot be replaced. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

  • Does the heat blow harder or faster for each different setting? example 1,2,3,4, or 5

    • Hello bellbern, No, the blower does not increase or decrease. Only the heat options can change. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Does this unit have a glass front?

    • Thank you clpstr for the opportunity to help you with the Real Flame Electric Firebox Fireplace. The front of the fireplace is not glass. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • The dimensions given I assume are overall dimensions of the unit. I would like the dimensions of the firebox opening. Height and width and depth to back wall.

    • Hello, hendy22. Unfortunately, we do not have those measurements available; we only have the total dimensions. Also, please note that this insert is made for existing Real Flame certified wooden mantels only.

  • I want to put this into my firebox for my outdated wood burning fire place. Do I need to leave the fire walls in and I do have a flume to the top of my roof for venting. Can you recommend and installer? Or can I do this myself? It has already turned cold here.

    • Hello deesosa1, The Real Flame Electric Firebox Fireplace must be used with Real Flame fireplace mantels only. 1400W, 4,780 BTU/hr heater Complete with remote and hardware. Programmable thermostat with display in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Ultra bright LED technology with 5 brightness settings. With this you don't need a flume to the top of my roof for venting. Also you can do this yourself. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • 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.

  • dose this insert have an automatic temp control, once i set it at a temp will it turn off and on to maintain the temp

    • Hello metom, Yes this has an adjustable thermostat. Have a great day!

    • Yea. it's kinda limited though... not like you can set it from 62-104.... It does have a thermostat, but, it's bare bones in range and function. (still better than other units though)

  • Can I use this outside under covered patio

    • Hi kandy2322, this unit is made to operate indoors. While it may be possible we do not recommend it. Thanks for shopping with us.

  • What is the max power rating?

    • Thank you for your question georgesa. The Real Flame Electric Firebox Fireplace is a 1400 Watt, 4780 BTU/hr heater. We only suggest to use the 4099 Electric Insert with existing Real Flame mantels only. Have a great day.

  • Does this have to be inserted into something or can I use as a free standing space heater?

    • Hello grande1, We apologize for the confusion. This is not free standing as in a space heater but is a fireplace insert to be used only with Real Flame Fireplace Mantels. Thank you for checking.

    • 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.

  • Is the outside of the unit cool to the touch?

    • 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"????!!!!

    • Because it is only the firebox, it doesn't come with a frame.

  • Could I have a contracter recess this into a wall?

    • Hello summerjensen, This need to get air from the top so you wouldn't be able to do that. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • 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.
