Our daughter just loves the faux fireplace we got for the house.
The faux fireplace is huge.
Just like a real fireplace. It takes up a large portion of the south wall. During Christmas I hang the stockings off of the mantle and we keep the “flames” going all day long. In fact, in winter we light up the “flames almost every day. We also almost always used the space heater aspect of the faux fireplace. Heat comes out of the vents that are strategically hidden just above the fire image. I love my faux fireplace. The only issue is that our daughter has learned how to operate it. She turns the flames on and off all of the time. In winter, she turned the heat on once so I would always check to make sure the heat stayed off. Then, in spring, I disabbled the heater aspect because I got tired of having to open the doors to let cold air in after the space heater had been running for hours before I noticed it. Well, it is summer now and we got home from a long day of fun when I noticed that the air conditioner was running almost nonstop. Then I noticed that the space heater was running in the faux fireplace. There is only one person in this family who would have turned it on: our daughter. I don’t know how she did it. I thought I flipped the switch under the facade so that you can’t turn it on with the remote. I can only assume our daughter switched it back on somehow.
