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.

Ordering this product was a great choice. I received a personal email from Touchstone very quickly after ordering and had someone to contact with issues or questions. UPS freight had some issues with delivery but that isn’t the sellers fault. The fireplace arrived in perfect condition and works wonderfully. It is virtually silent during operation, with the exception of the fan when quietly blowing heat. The smaller fireplace in our bedroom was ordered from Amazon and is a different brand...not even close to the quality of this Touchstone fireplace, but you get what you pay for. The Touchstone was more expensive but worth every penny. It is a great addition to our renovated living room.
Love my build out for my 72” electric fireplace. I just used the clear crystals. I love the modern look and how the many colors you can use. It has open up my room and makes it look bigger. Very beautiful!
I ordered a 72” Elite and we love it! It was easy to install and with the depth being only 5 1/2”, it is easy to design around. We live in Florida, so we primarily use it for aesthetics, although we have run the heater on some cool nights. Two things you want to be aware of: First, be precise on your rough opening. Second, see if you need an additional breaker as it is rated for 1500 watts running on high heat. I added a 20amp breaker just for my TV and fireplace and it worked out well. I wish I could publish a picture, it is awesome!
Excellent Service and Reliable Fireplaces
I am a contractor who purchases at least 10 Electric Fireplaces a year from Touchstone and I am beyond satisfied with the products as well as the service and delivery of the products. I cannot say that especially in these challenging times getting materials from other companies.
Gorgeous lighting effects
From buying this fireplace to watching it, it’s been an excellent experience. I may have made a prior review but this one will supersede it. I’ve had excellent customer service (it took a while to go cross country to me), and this fireplace has innumerable.color options for flame effects, and ember effects. It’s soothing and beautiful. I’ve not yet used the heater but I’m certain it’s good. I bought the 72” for a large living room wall, under TV and it’s beautiful, soothing. Thinking about another for the master bedroom. Love this fireplace. An eye-catcher!
