The Sideline® 36 inch is a compact version of Touchstone's popular 50-inch Sideline®. The Sideline® series has become so popular, customers regularly ask about finding a version in a size that fits their decor or room size. The Sideline® 36 has a ventless design, with the vent on the face of the fireplace delivering the heat. Like all Touchstone™ fireplaces, the Sideline® 36 has the most realistic flame available in an electric smokeless fireplace, and it will leave all your friends nervous about putting their hands up to the glass face.
The Sideline® 36 is perfect for smaller walls and delivers a built-in look and ambiance that other electric fireplaces can touch. No muss and no fuss, you'll have the look of a real fireplace, built right into your wall. The Sideline® 36 has 5 flame settings featuring 3 colors and 2 heat settings, and the fireplace can be operated without the heat, so feel free to use it on a summer evening as well as on the coldest winter nights. All of your required mounting hardware is included, and Touchstone™ support is just a phone call, email or live chat away, in case you need help.
The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is our exclusive, realistic flame. This flame set is so natural-looking, your friends will be nervous to touch the glass. The Sideline® 36 gives you 5 flame settings ranging in 3 colors, from a quiet ember to a raging blaze, all of which can be controlled from the remote control or from the control panel on the face of the fireplace.

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)
Yes, it does heat your room
Sure it looks great, but the Sideline® 36 will help heat your room. We don't recommend the Sideline® 36 as your primary heat source, but it can help heat a room up to 400 square feet in space with a heater that delivers 5000 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. Of course, the Sideline® 36 can also be operated without the heat on, but with electric fireplace operational. It's your choice and the Sideline® 36 wall-mounted fireplace makes it easy.

We purchased our Sideline 36 0014 36" Recessed Fireplace from the company. It arrived in good shape in about a week. We installed in our Tiffin motorhome under the TV by removing the doors and plywood back of the cabinet. Luckily, Tiffin had installed a dedicated outlet behind the cabinet for a fireplace. That made things very simple. After padding out the cabinet frame opening to the specified width and staining the wood to match the cabinets, installation took only a few minutes. We were concerned that it might rattle going down the road. The unit has 4 hooks, 2 on each side of the glass front, and 2 screws that hold it in place. The top hooks and screws held it against the fireplace tightly. The lower hooks made for a loose fit, that would have definitely rattled. To fix that, I purchased a roll of 5/8" soft self adhesive rubber weather stripping. I cut 2, 1" pieces and stuck them on the back of the glass front panel, next to the each lower hook. That took up the sloppy fit and cushioned the panel. No rattles. The heating unit and blower is built into the top of the fireplace, so the weather strip is not anywhere near the heat source. The log set glows and looks very realist as do the flames, which go 4"-5" high. There is some noise from the blower, but it's not loud and actually less than our Vornado space heater which this unit will replace, happily. We are quite happy with it.
We purchased the Touchstone Sideline Recessed Electric Fireplace last March. We are only sending this review now, because our sunroom project was recently completed. Living in Florida, there are a number on cold nights. This fireplace is in a 12 x 24’ room and has easily provided the supplemental heating that we wanted. Also, the atmosphere that it provides is wonderful. We had the outlet installed inside our wall. Other that that, we were able to install the fireplace ourselves. The installation was not complicated. We are really enjoying the Touchstone Sideline Fireplace!
It’s very nice, happy with it.
