Bionaire Electric Fireplace Black is stylish and sleek looking. Easy to assemble. I used the freestanding view. Comes with metal feet you attach with winged thumbscrews by hand. Screen is glass so suggest wearing gloves when handling it so you do not get fingerprints on the screen. Heat temperatures include 65, 70, 75, 80 and 85. Fan has settings 1 and 2. Timer: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12. Flame light has 4 settings to increase the width of the faux flame. Flame can be turned on without the heater being on as well. Units come with remote control – you will need to supply 2-AA batteries. Remote lights up showing selected feature setting for brief moments, as does the unit itself. (Unit has small display on side and behind glass). Unit beeps when features are activated. Fan forced hear. Actual heat comes from the top of the unit behind the glass. When the 40w bulb needs to be replaced- removed the glass and unscrew the small panel that houses the bulb. Rather quiet compared to my other freestanding heaters. I can just hear the heat blower very softly so perfect for my bedroom. Be cautious with picking up the unit, as the glass will come off. Glass is not permanently attached to the unit; instead, it sits on two brackets on each side of the heater and lifts off. Nice heavy power cord. Not too long, but I would not consider it short either. Does take a while to heat up the area ( max 500 sq. feet –Bonaire spec) or as an add-on to take the chill off a space. One-year warranty. 1500watts and draws 12.5 amps.
