Real Flame Ashley Electric Fireplace
This electric fireplace arrived shortly and safely after ordered. It was assembled with little trouble in about an hour or so. I cannot give a true report on the heat output, as we have not needed to use it after arrival, but it all works as advertised and looks great in my living room.

Very Happy with this unit.
I was a little nervous about buying this product on line, but the home improvement stores are so seasonal, that they just didn't have a good selection this time of year. Shipped right to my door, no problems arrived in perfect order. It took about 2 and a half hours to assemble. One person can do it, two people makes it easier and faster. Their assembly process could be better in my opinion but it works. They did short me a couple of washers too. The good thing is they give you plenty of L brackets which makes the finish product sturdy. Ikea has a better assembly process in my opinion, this unit took some tweaking and readjusting to get some of the holes to line up and some pieces just don't fit together squarely. With some adjustment you can get everything to look right and the finish product is sturdy. I am very pleased with the finish look, it is exactly what I wanted. There are plenty of settings to operate the unit with heat only, or different flame effects, temp settings etc. I am also pleased that the unit is only 1400 watts because my living room outlets are only on a 15amp circuit. The heat output is not huge but it will work for my room perfectly and without the extra power draw. I purchased the electric version of this unit. The dimensions were to specs and worked perfectly for my area. Only one short coming at this point besides assembly and that is the pre set temps seem kind of ridiculous. The lowest temp is 71 and they go up from there. Seems like you would want 68, 72 76 etc. but these are like 71,75,86, 99. I have not used it long enough to give more input but I can't imagine setting it at 86 or 99. Overall I am very happy and would recommend this unit.

I selected this fireplace after searching a lot of other styles. I'm was very satisfied with it. I added some tiles around the firebox to give it a little more detail. It was easy to put together only took about an hour.
