The Touchstone Sideline Elite® Electric Fireplace was designed to improve upon our popular Sideline series by adding more colors, more features, and less frame around the fireplace.
The Sideline® Elite delivers the beauty of a fireplace without the fire and smokey smell. The Sideline® Elite has 2 heat settings (high and low) with a thermostat and will heat a room up to 400 sq. ft. Also, the fireplace's flame can be used without the heating feature. The Sideline® 42 Elite is easy to install and comes with simple and understandable instructions.
The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is the flame itself. We tell our customers the flame will transcend your expectations, and they will not fail to impress. The flames deliver the same relaxing effect of real flames, without the smell or mess, and they look great in any room of the house. Read more about the benefits of electric fireplaces.
Multiple flame colors
To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The flames that Touchstone Home Products™ fireplaces create are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has 60 color combinations, allowing you to set just the right mood. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offer you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, Sideline® Elite gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
Yes, it does heat your room
What makes the Sideline® Elite unique is its heating capabilities. It allows you to recess your electric fireplace into the wall while also providing heat through the vent in the front of the unit. The Sideline® Elite offers two heat settings which quickly add heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. Please note the heater isn’t designed to be the primary heat source in your room or home. It's designed to warm up a cool evening, or bring the temperature of a room up a few degrees. The visual appeal and heat emitted by your electric fireplace place in addition to your home’s primary heating source will provide your room with a cozy and calming aura. Your electric fireplace’s heat settings can be controlled using the remote or the controls on the front of the unit, and you also have the option of controlling the heat by setting up the Sideline® Elite’s built-in heat timer.
Mounting and Use
The versatile Sideline® Elite electric fireplace offers two installation options. Although it is essentially designed for insertion in your wall, it can also be mounted on your wall. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided.

Easy to operate! The color of the flames are realistic. I love this fireplace. Insulation was extremely easy as well
Glad I bought this model
I have had this fireplace for a week or so and am finishing the surround to install it. Every night I put it up and then move it in the morning so I can work on the surround. Which is another way of saying it just looks and feels so cool I don't want to miss a night of watching it. This is an elegant and realistic electric fireplace. Pros: It looks pretty darn real on some settings. The flames are soothing and relaxing. While a big fan of real fires, my wife is allergic to the smoke so this turned out to be a great option. Because it turns on with a flick of a switch I will probably use it every day. While everyone knows that there is no smell, soot, smoke, carrying firewood. risk of fire etc. etc. I didn't anticipate how much more often I would use it versus the hassles of a real fire. The options are endless, although many of them aren't my taste, as I like to look as realistic as possible. The color arrays are impressive. Easy install once you have a place made for it. Cons: not really but... the crystals and driftwood are my choice. The logs are just ok. If they pulsated or changed they would be much more realistic. The heater is a bit loud. Not sure this could be improved but I didn't buy it for that reason. I can easily hear it even with the tv on. Overall very pleased with this model. The extra cost over the other model to me was worth it. The bezel is like the difference between an old tv and a newer model. For me the other bezels looked clunky, this looks elegant and modern. Of course there are more options. Is it a real fire? Of course not. Can you tell...it won't pass close scrutiny and make anyone believe its a real fire. it will however feel real. I really like it and expect that you will enjoy it. I will be back with additional comments and some photos once I have it all installed in it's new surround.
So far my experience has been great! The fireplace arrived quickly and in good condition. I have plugged it in to check it out and the flames are realistic, the small bevel around it will look great once installed. Lastly, there are so many options on the remote to customize the fireplace this will work for any scenario. I would definitely recommend buying this model.
