Yes, it does heat your room
Sure it looks great, but the Sideline® 40 will help heat your room. We don't recommend The Sideline® 40 as your primary heat source, but it can help heat a room up to 400 square feet in space with a heater that delivers 5100 BTUs. It's perfect for taking the edge off a cool evening in the fall, or for giving your room a little more cozy warmth on a frosty winter night. The Sideline® 40 can also be operated without heat, but with electric fireplace operational so you can use it on those hot summer nights.
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 three color-changing options (orange, blue, and blue-orange), along with five settings, from a soft ember glow or an intense blaze. 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® gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)

It was excellent. It beautiful to watch the flames and the heater is great. Easy to install.
I love my touchstone electric fireplace. I researched for about a year and I’m so glad I bought one.
The unit arrived quickly and with the help of a great Customer Service whom answered all our questions prior to the sale. We prepared the opening according to the specs and with the instructions on line and it slid into placed when it arrived. My only recommendation and this does not detract from our positive experience, is the electrical hook is direct using 12 gage wire since it draws a decent amount of amps and the “box” is a bit tight for the connections but it works. The flame is so realistic and it is the best I have seen to date. We are elated with this purchase. Thanks TouchStone
We love our new fireplace! It heats the room & makes the environment feel extra cozy! It is easy to install. We always have it on because of how happy it makes us!
Very nice. Fit perfectly to the specifications in my custom built fireplace.
