comment
" ...  It looks surprisingly real and keeps my house warm. ... I close doors not being heated, so I would estimate 500 square feet is heated very well.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The "flames" are realistic and very pretty, and the thermostat works perfectly-it heats up the bedroom surprisingly well, and it does not get hot to the touch. ... Just bought a second one today for the living room for this winter, and will try to zone heat, rather than dealing with the furnace.  ...  "
