Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinUT Great Electric Heater, Also Great Looking
This is a great looking heater and a nice addition to any room or home.
To start off, there is some assembly required. All that is needed is a philips head screwdriver. You will thenjust build the box that the electric heater will sit inside. It was easy enough to follow the directions and assemble this unit.
Note that the side panels were not labeled according to the manual. panel B and C were swapped, so follow the illustrated drawing for placement or you will have to disassemble pieces to make it fit together correctly. and as the manual suggests, do not tighten any of the screws until the whole thing is together, or you will have major fit issues as you go.
There is a series of 4 buttons in the top right hand corner of the heater glass that controls the furnace as well as a remote. There is also a heads up display that will tell you the temperature. The flame and wood does not give off any heat. You can actually just turn the flame on without any heat coming out of the unit. The heat is generated and blown out of the front vent, similar to most electric heaters, so the glass never gets hot. This heated up the room nicely and felt comfortable. you can set a temperature and then set the timer.
1 thing to note is to be careful having this delivered to your home. This was ordered online and delivered on a pallet. the downside is that it was just dropped off without notice (while we were home). And left out in the rain long enough to soak the box and the internal packaging. We only noticed that it was delivered because I had to leave to run an errand. If I hadn't this would have sat out all night in the rain. There is no damage to the product, but it sure did leave a mess in our kitchen where we had to un-box so we could mop up afterwards. So if you do order online, keep an eye out.
Overall the product quality is great, shipping, not so much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by itsZACyo Looks great, functionality is poor
I bought this electric fireplace to heat a 200 sq ft room in Las Vegas, (average temp is about 45 during the winter outdoors, and 60-65 in the house with no furnace on). This heater runs constantly throughout the night when set to 70 degrees and does not heat up to the 400 sq ft recommended by the manufacturer. The fireplace looks amazing and my wife loves it, but the electric heater insert is very weak. May look to return it it the manufacturer and find a stronger, better heater insert.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcknzy For any decor.
This Culver fireplace was easy to assemble and nice looking,being white it will fit any decor and looks good.
You only need one Philips screwdriver and the assembly was pretty straight forward,the only con I can think of is the beaten metal front is a lot darker than the picture,its a dull gray, not shiny but it doesn't take away from the overall look you get and I think it looks better this way.
The remote works well and the fire is adjustable to your mood.

Very happy with this product. Easy to assemble. Two of the side panels were mis-marked but I figured it out. Make sure all seams are abutted before the final tightening of all screws. Heavy, well-made, and beautiful color.

Came with a few dings, but nothing extreme I couldn't live with. Great piece for the cost. We are really enjoying it. It creates such a cozy atmosphere.
