With two heat settings, this fireplace quickly warms up a room up to 400 sq. ft. and adds a cozy and calming aura to your home. Please note that the Sideline 50 is not intended to be the primary heat source for your room or home, but rather a supplement to your primary heating system.

Whether for visual appeal or added warmth, the Sideline 50 Electric Fireplace is a great addition to any home.

    Mounting and Use

    The versatile Sideline® 50 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. We recommend placing your Sideline® 50 at least 8” below your ceiling or 8” below your mounted flat screen TV because of its heating feature.

        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 80004 50 Recessed Electric Fireplace 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! The Sideline 50 80004 50 Recessed Electric Fireplace Review

        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.

        Love it!

        I am absolutely in love with my electric fireplace. It adds such a cozy vibe to my living room. My toddler loves picking the color we use when turning it on. Shipping was fast and the price was good. The Sideline 50 80004 50 Recessed Electric Fireplace The Sideline 50 80004 50 Recessed Electric Fireplace Review

        Sideline 50 Recessed Fireplace

        This is a fantastic electric fireplace! When my wife said she wanted an electric fireplace, I had my doubts. This fireplace has an incredibly realistic looking flame and puts out plenty of heat for our living room.
