Not warm enough

Hi..we were excited to purchase this fireplace for our basement. It looks great, but doesn’t really warm up the space as we expected (about 600 sq ft)…had to buy a separate space heater to warm up the place.

Quick Shipping / Quality product.

Item came very quick. Was super easy to “install”. Love that it came with both the glass stones and logs so we can change up if we get tired of one. The Sideline 50 Inch Recessed Smart Electric Fireplace 80004 Review

With a flip of the switch, I have warmth and ambiance

I just wanted to let you know we finally got the electric fireplace installed this week in my new yoga studio. It looks fantastic and was so easy to install. I have attached a picture for you. Feel free to share or use as you choose. And, on top of everything else being so simple, with the flip of a switch I have warmth and ambiance in my studio. Just beautiful!

Great purchase, Sideline 50 80004

Purchased the Onyx Sideline 50 80004 for major remodel. Turned our non-working fireplace into a visually nice and modern look. It was too expensive to clear our chimney and make it up to code to use for a real flame fireplace. We could have gone gas, but decided to go with electric instead. We just wanted a sleek modern look and this certainly did that. Also, our livingroom runs warm all the time, one of the warmest rooms in the house, so we never need heat on in that room. Electrical was the best option to have the flames and no heat output. Only dislike is the faux log, doesn't look like the advertisement photos and doesn't look real. We went with the crystals and it really gives it a modern look. Highly recommend and is at a very good price for what you get.
