Love this Fireplace!

Easy to fit. We had a new construction so my workers just followed the easy step-by-step manual to create a frame for the unit. No need to create a platform for the unit if it rests on solid concrete floor. A simple wooden pedestal can be created if you want to raise the unit. We mounted a TV on top of the fireplace however, since heat does rise, the bottom of the TV started getting hot as well as the wall right above the unit. After doing more research it was recommended that we install the fan to help circulation which seemed to help a little. The best way to avoid this if you're planning a similar set up is to create a slot inside your wall (wall cavity) for your TV so that it acts like a mantel. As you can see, we were forced to use a floating mantel to absorb the heat which doesn't look too great but it'll have to do for the time being. Overall, great buy. Makes for a eye-catching focal piece!
Pros:-Saves money by using gas vs electricity -Looks great, modern, stylish -Easy to switch on and off -Shipping was extremely quick
Cons:-After all add-ons and accessories it can get a little pricey -Need to purchase additional media rocks (the amount given is not enough)
