The Torchiere Electric Fireplace gives you the look and feel of a real fireplace without the smoke and mess. This electric fireplace has a burnished walnut finish and beautiful design that includes intricate carvings, inlays, and elegant trim. The multi-function remote control easily allows you to change settings from any spot in the room--there's even an interior light and flame speed control. With the patented Multi-Fire effect, you get an amazing amount of radiance- it's like having a real wood-burning fireplace only better. Glowing embers will begin to show as the fire heats up and dim on command, adding to the realism. Another appealing feature is the ambient light effect, which can be adjusted to get the perfect amount of light in the room.The large heating area of 400 sq. ft. fills most large rooms, and an intelligent heat feature quiets the internal fan, self-adjusting to the desired temperature. With the Air Purifire System, allergens are filtered out, enhancing your home's air quality - see below. The programmable thermostat maintains the room's heat, and adjusts to the temperature accordingly. This feature helps reduce heating costs, and an all-season function allows for the heat to be turned on and off.This electric fireplace is energy efficient and burns clean and green emitting no carbon monoxide or emissions and still only costs pennies an hour to run. On cold winter days, the fan-forced 5,120 BTUs make even the chilliest of rooms seem comfortable. The Torcheiere Electric Fireplace can be placed in almost any room, and with its standard (120v) outlet, there's no reason it can't be in yours.
