I purchased this unit to sit inside my existing fireplace mantle. The back is higher than expected and needed some fine tuning to get inside. This has a nice finished look to it. The heat is slightly less than advertised in my opinion. Although it kicks off and on like a heater should, the fan blower does not put out much heat. The most disappointing is the lighting. You just can't see it. Lit by a string of very small yellow LED lights, it is just washed out. No ambiance at all and no way to replace or upgrade the lighting to make brighter. If you just need a heater for your fireplace for a smaller room, this will do.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight
Cons: poor lighting and heat.

We are sorry to hear that you are not completely satisfied with your unit. Please feel free to give us a call at 877-447-4768 and we can resolve this issue with you. Thanks.
I just love this electric insert. It looks very real and I can have a "roaring" fire with just the flick of a remote, without the clean-up of ashes!! The heater does not exactly put out a lot of heat but it will take the chill off the room. And, it's a lot less expensive than having a gas insert installed.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Great Value
We have used it every day since we have gotten it even when it has been in the high 70s. We only use the flame, no heat on those days. We took the back off and it fit great into our fireplace. I just wish I would have known it came without the back also. That product was not available when I looked for it before my purchase, but I received an e-mail with suggested products that "I might like".
the 23in electric fireplace insert we ordered is GREAT! I was afraid it would look too fake, but they did a good job making it look real, and we can use it all year long because it has on/off heater with a remote controllor so you don't even have to get up!!!! This is way better than fake logs or a DVD on the tv. We live in Florida so it is perfect!!!!
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Quiet, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Lots of Features, High Quality, Economical, Reliable
Cons: realistic flame, no clean up or smell, use all year long, is also a heater
We removed our old propane gas logs and replaced with this fireplace insert. Now I can have a "fire" anytime I want without the "dirty" mess of propane. Now I "burn" my fireplace all the time (with or without the heat option). The installation was as easy as 1-2-3. Product is well made and fit our situation perfectly. The ONLY thing I would change is I wish it crackled more like a real fire.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Great Value, Reliable

Review 8 for 23 in. Electric Fireplace Insert
PostedSeptember 25, 2014
Very noisy, has a loud hum to it, then is even noisier when you turn the heat on. Power cord should be longer, ours sits in the fireplace and the outlet isn't that close.heat doesn't come on all the time, it actually turns off. I don't know if this is suppose to happen, there is nothing in the manual about self-heat-control so I'm calling the company in the morning
This product performs well, looks great, and is priced right. It does not make a crackling sound, but for me that is a plus, as I like to watch TV while it is on. The flames are realistic looking.......pictures do not do it justice. The remote control feature is awesome. It was well protected in the packaging when it arrived. Overall, one of my better purchases.
Pros: Performs Well, Quiet, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, High Quality, Economical, Light Weight
It looks surprisingly realistic. The only sound is from the heater fan and only when the heat function is selected.
Other reviews mentioned low heat output. I found it low at first but left on for over 30 minutes or so, it does build up enough to be comfortable in my 200 sf space. 400 sf maybe a stretch. Higher fan capacity would distribute more heat faster with a little more noise but it would be the user's choice to pick a lower quieter setting after the room is comfortable.
When I bought this fireplace insert, I wasn't thinking about the remote control. It turned out to be a much appreciated convenience.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Quiet, Stylish, Light Weight
Cons: could use higher fan settings to heat faster
It is perfect and tucks right into the mantle I have in my bedroom. The flames are so real looking and it throws off nice heat if u want it. There is a fan u hear when heat is on but it's not annoying. I love the remote that I keep on my bed stand.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Great Value
Purchased to warm a basement rec room. Placeed in non-working fireplace. Does a great job warming the room and looks real!! I purchased another similar fireplace insert for our upstairs fireplace and we love it as well!

We love our new fireplace insert. For several years we quit building fires in our fireplace because of the many steps to build and clean up after the fire. Hence, I didn't even use our living room because of the high ceiling and draft in the cold winter. Now, I thoroughly enjoy this main room in our house immensely because of our new beautiful and warm fireplace. It takes the chill off the room and looks elegant at the same time without any fuss!! I turn it on daily even without the heat on those nicer days. We love it!! Great buy for the dollars!!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Quiet, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Easy to Clean, High Quality, Economical
The price is a little steep for this unit, but that is the only con. I'm actually glad we sprung for the more expensive one considering how great it looks in our fireplace compared to others I've seen. Since putting it in we've received several compliments. It looks as close to a real fireplace on and off as you can get.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Quiet, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Good Shape, Lots of Features, High Quality, Reliable
Installed easily. Electric cord went down the trash flap in the fireplace and connected in the basement. No plug upstairs required. I sat my unit on black cat andirons and it looks terrific. The remote works instantly, the insert throws adequate heat and adds charm and coziness to the room. Everyone exclaims how lovely it looks. I am VERY pleased with it.

I had a fireplace inspection which revealed a warped fire box. To replace it was going to cost thousands. I love having open fires in my fireplace so it was a sad day. I can't afford to pay to have it fixed right now. So I went online to homedepot.com to find something to fill that spot in my heart that longed for a fire on a nice winter evening. I found this product. I was not sure it would do the trick. I was afraid it would be tacky. (Yes, it IS a bit tacky..). But I found this product to be fun. At first, I really longed for my "real" fire. But, after using it, and seeing my kids (who are young) turn it on every day when they got home from school, I realized that it was a very nice addition to our home. From a distance, it looks like a fire. And even close up, there is a certain comforting look about it. I like to sit in a big overstuffed chair right next to the fireplace and read. The slight glow is nice. I don't think the heater really puts out much heat (if it is left on for 3-4 hours.....I can feel the heat a bit). But I really got it for the feel of having a fire. I like that I can use this during the summer too. So, the bottom line for me is that I found this item to be a fun addition to our living room. It isn't real and I don't expect anyone to be fooled. But it works for me. And I plan to keep enjoying it.
No assembly was required -- in case you are wondering. Came right out of the box ready to go. The only con I would say is that the cord is too short. Ridiculously short actually. Come on people -- really? I still have yet to find a black extension cord that will do the job and am using an orange one! Yikes. Also, relating to delivery -- I ordered online and it was delivered in 2 days. No lie. It was very quick.
Blessings to you.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install
Cons: cord way too short, doesn't provide significant heat
Had my heart set on a gas insert, but it was costly, too much trouble. I decided to get a gas insert. The flame is very authentic for the price. I guess what I liked the best is that the insert was easy to set up. Second best is the price and how fast it was shipped to me. I would recommend this product.
