    Great products. Used this unit for a master bedroom fireplace. I currently have 3 from Touchstone, including my RV, and only purchase these for my customers. You will not be disappointed !

    28" fireplace

    This was exactly how it was described. Brings the warmth level up in our 15 x 14 room, quietly and slowly. We find ourselves turning the heat off in about an hour because it gets too warm, but then enjoy the flame setting without heat. The only thing that would make this product better would be a temperature setting thermostat. But we knew it only had high and low setting when we bought. Overall we love it!

    Couldn’t be happier!

    I was looking for a specific size to fit a antique metal insert & fireplace mantle. We didn’t have a place downstairs to vent a gas fireplace, so this is the next best thing. It was important to me for it to be made in the USA. Found it! And I couldn’t be happier! Shipping was so fast, installing it was a breeze & I cannot believe how much heat comes off this little fireplace. On top of looking great, it’s maintenance free…bonus!
