Customer Reviews

Akron 31 in. Space Saver Electric Fireplace in Oak is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate, throws good heat. Great for ambience. Quiet, easy to operate, throws good heat. I was amazed at how real the case looks. The "fire" is of course artificial but it still creates a nice ambience. I generally regard instructions as just "someone else's opinion", but in this case it's best to read the instructions after laying the parts out on the floor. I was then able to assemble it and start it up in about an hour. Pay particular attention to how the clever locking fasteners work that hold the parts of the case together. Everything was well aligned but you'll need a firm grip and a good screwdriver for those fasteners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for the price! Very easy to assemble and is a fantastic product for the price. Don't use a power tool to assemble this product. Everyone writing a review stating that it easily strips out have probably never assembled something like this before. You cannot crank down a screw in particle board or it will strip out. The first page of assembly is confusing if you don't lay out the boards and closely follow the directions. Once you get past the first section you'll have the hang of it! I purchased this for my mother who lives in Brooksville, FL where it gets cold but it hasn't been cold enough for the past few days to run the heater. We did test it and it really puts out some great heat! My mother loves the logs and flames and they look wonderful. Since you have an option to run the flames and heat separately, mom ran the flames all evening! Now it just needs to get cold again! I forgot to mention that this is a very quiet product. You won't be disappointed! Enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Alternative Heating Source to Kerosene The Electric Fireplace has been a godsend! Love how the thermostat keeps the temperature just right for heating a room, whether you want 68 degrees or 70! Easy to assemble and looks very nice in the living room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than more expensive model previously bought $229 "oak" fireplace because the picture on web looked like a light oak/maple color which is what i wanted but it was DARK wood...and flame effect was almost comical compared to this one. although the flame effect on this one is still "fake" looking it still looks 10x better than the one i paid $50 more for. i returned the other one. cabinet is pressboard/particle board with wood grain vinyl "contact paper"...heater is decent but really only for a small living room is 13x15 and is barely adequate...could be the placement though, its in the corner. if room is completely silent you can hear the motor running the "flames"...voom....voom.....voom...not terrible loud though...a tv or radio at any level drowns it out...only thing missing is fireplace sounds...i was thinking of putting on a loop on cheap mp3 can download wav files from internet...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fireplace for the money. This fireplace is a good value for the money. I looked at a lot of others costing a whole lot more. It's smaller size is nice for a small room or living area with limited wall space. The flame is surprisingly realistic and the heater really puts out the heat. About an hour is needed to assemble the mantel/cabinet around the firebox.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have FACTs base on my heating experience... I always get lucky when i purchase high dollar items. I do my research for a whole day, and look for how many people has the product, experience, major flaws and good out ways more then bad. (THIS PRODUCT) is another winner purchase..... ((HEATING QUALITY)) I live in Oregon, right now it is 38 degrees outside. With out my heat on. It is a ICE BOX in every inch of my house. I have a 1500 sq ft home. My house has smaller rooms, one hall way, a wall divding the kithen/dinning room from the living room. Now that said, you can imagine or compare my experience to your personal home space enviornment. We have the fireplace located in our living room, facing opposite from the hall way leading down to a few rooms. And the fireplace heater, has been on now for "5" hours. We can now finally call it decent "warm" inside our home and covers all inches. Every half to and hour it just feels warmer... So that alone tells me, it works very well with my home layout. Just be patient. I did turn my central heat on for the 1st 30mins before turning it off and just having the fireplace heater run. If you are looking for a fireplace heater, to make you hot. I suggest doing jumping jacks to feels the sweat, or " do not" buy an electric fireplace at all. And sticking with a LifeSmart infrared quartz heater for $130. It will cover 1500 square ft, at 1500 watts. They work great. However, If you are like me. Who wants to have there home at a decent warm temp, at a great price, get the fireplace look, and only use 1350 watts VS 1500 watts and save money on electric bill. Then this product is for you! My parents run there 1500 watt Lifesmart heater box for 12 hours a day and there bill was only $60 bucks extra. Im hoping running the heater 6 hrs more and having a 1350 watt heater will be cheaper? Either way, my central heat is the old school heaters and my bill this time every year is an easy extra $200-$250 to run the heater. Either way i will be a happy camper when i get my first bill! ((INSTALL)) was easy! My husband had it put together in 30mins. Simple! ((Quality)) of Product. Here is my only "CON" the heat blower, should be more at the ground level. Since heats rises. Becasue the blower is much higer, i believe that is why it takes longer to get the house temp at warm. "PROS" The fire flames looks as real as a fake fireplace can get, that is not computerized. So flames look close to real, just dim down the lighting and you will get more of a real look. The wood, isnt real wood. But we never expected it too. It's no difference from buying an entertianment center that hold all your dvd, tv and etc. Unless you paid well over $800. As for color, we wanted the cherry because all of our stuff is cherry color. They were out, so we purchase the oak color, it was not light color, like real oak. It is a dark brown with a cherry like ttint of color to it, so it blends in well with our cherry color furniture. Then again, our living room area has darker lighting. The size is perfect, its not too tall or too short. Its not too wide and takin up to much space. The sound from the heater running, you can slightly hear when tv is on. Who cares any how, because if you expected a silent fan, then you are looking at a heater that cost you well more then $600. Keep in mind before buying any product over $100. There is always 5 out of 100 people, who will get a product that is damaged, or missing a part, or has a defect. You just cross your fingers and hope your lucky. When you do your research, see how many people out of everyone had defects? If its more then 5%, you probably dont want to buy it.. We got lucky, everything in perfect shape and runs great! Another win! Good Luck to you all, and i hope my DETAIL review helps someone out there! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realistic flames, assembly a nightmare Once assembled and in place, great look, realistic flames, quiet and heater nice. HOWEVER, the assembly process was a nightmare. A gazillion pieces and screws and nuts and if you use a manual screw driver, takes forever to complete install. I've assembled much more complicated furniture before, but this was just flimsy and screws were easily stripped or would not screw into wood at all. Took me at least SIX hours to assemble, not the one hour the assembly book said.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor I purchased this item online through Home Depot but directly from the manufacturer. The item arrived in less then one week. When I inspected the fireplace I immediately knew it was ordered by another customer and returned. The wood was of a good quality. But, there were nicks in the wood and in attempts to assemble the holes were striped and the screws just spun around. When I called the 800 number of the manufacturer the lady was LESS then pleasant and told me to return the product to Home Depot; her quote was "lady I can't help you". Home Depot was very pleasant when I returned the item and explained the problem.
