I was so warm this winter. I told myself last year I was gonna do it right and get a small space heater in , my 750sf apartment. That way between the random times my landlord assumes i am home i was st was the warmest. When i got too hot i would just do something in another room or turn it off. I had the perfect change in temp between my living room and bedroom. Actually my whole apartment was quite nice. I wore shorts in my apartment. In Chicago. In winter. It was awesome. Sweet price too. I keep the fire on because...it's pwetty and my dog rooves to warm herself after our walks. She thinks the lights are pwetty too. No increase in my bill really. I mean what isn't plugged in now a day. Right
This fireplace looks really nice, however, it is small. If you have a small space, i.e. apartment, studio, small room, then it could work. But in a big house, it looks like a toy fireplace for a kid's play area. I purchased two and took them back. I gave it a positive rating because it is a nice look. and would work in a small space.
