Absolutely love this unit!
I went on a hunt to find this unit as it was sold out every store I went to. Finally found it in another state, on sale too!

SO happy with this unit!

I also bought mine on sale and purchased the optional warranty. Very happy!

So it's actually saving me money from the emerg. heat going on.
It does not come with a remote, but I have gotten these Indoor Wireless Remote Control Outlet, you can hook up 3 things to them to make them remote controlled. Pretty nice. I have table lamps and this electric fireplace hooked up to it.
