The fireplace arrived just after I got home from the doctor’s appointment Friday. All I had to do was get it out of the box (it was so heavy!) and put the wheels on the bottom so I could roll it.
The flame is beautiful. And it heats up the whole place very quickly. My thermostat is in the hall and before I know it it is 73 degrees!
Of course it isn’t as tall or as wide as a real fireplace. But if you live in a small space, it is perfect.
It has 5 temperature modes from low to high. The log set remembers the last heat setting and when you turn it on again it will start at that setting. Unless power is interrupted of course.
It has a remote control for the power, heat and brightness of the logs. The flame effect settings are high, medium and low. The flame setting will also recall the last setting and when you turn it on again it will start at that setting.
You can use the controls on the fireplace itself or use the remote.
I just read that the fireplace should not have flammable objects within 3 feet of each side, so I moved the furniture away.
I didn’t feel good enough Friday to read the whole manual. So now that I have, I moved the furniture.
Below is a photo I took after I moved the furniture and put galvanized tubs of plants there instead. Don’t think they’re flammable, are they?
I really liked the chair there, but I don’t want anything to catch fire. I’d rather be on the safe side.
You don’t see flames in this photo because it got so hot in here I had to turn it off and open the windows! It just takes a couple of minutes to completely warm the apartment.
If the heat goes out in my apartment, now I’ll be covered. Unless of course the power itself goes out.
If you want to check it out, here is the link. It is from Lowes but is actually by a third party called Pleasant Hearth. I ordered it I think Monday of last week and it arrived around noon on Friday.
For a little over $182 I can heat my entire apartment. The 5200 BTU heater warms up to 1000 square feet. My apartment is 725 square feet.
I really like the way it looks. It is perfect for an apartment setting. And I especially like the fact that it is on rollers and I can easily move it about.
Now I can sit and enjoy my fireplace and watch Netflix or make crafts or read, etc. Charlie and Ivy and I are warm and toasty.
