    Excellent Value

    Good price for a quality unit. Easy install and set up. I see no advantage to the higher priced units that are comparable.

    Heats Like Crazy

    After researching vent free gas fireplaces for a couple of months I chose this one. I wanted white and one that was not too big or too small and this is just the right size. I have a small 50 ish cottage and by the end of the day the low setting is heating the whole house. The electricity went out for about a hour and it sure was nice to have heat! I had professionals install it so I can't comment on that issue.

    Perfect addition!

    We bought this as a gift for my son's family. It was installed earlier this week and already in use. They love the fireplace. Not only is it beautiful but it is very functional. I am sure they will love it for many years to come. It arrived within a few days after it was ordered. We are 100% pleased with the whole process.
