Man Cave Perfect
I have my initial location framed out and electrical in place for this firebox. This is a zero clearance install so frame accordingly. I also installed a wall switch though this is not necessary as the unit is controlled by a remote and on unit control pad. I gave it a test the other day and I must say I am impressed with the heat output as well as the flame appearance. My only gripe is that the "bricks" are not super realistic looking when fireplace is turned off. Once I get my stone up I am sure it will look better as the focal point will shift.
Luxury and Ambiance
We changed out an old, gas fireplace that we were no longer using for this insert and we use it so much now! It adds ambiance to the room and the convenience of having warmth with a simple touch of the remote. There is no cord, this has to be wired in but the included instructions were thorough. It also came meticulously packaged. The heat is optional and there are countless options for how the flame can look. The flame can look more blue or red and can change the flicker amount. We keep discovering new options on what it can do. The logs look realistic too and the background looks like real brick. It's such a useful addition to any living space.
Simple solution to add warmth to any room. I decided to use this a remodel project for my basement for additional warmth. The style is simple but transitional it can really adapt to any existing space.
