    Yes, it does heat your room

    What makes the SidelineĀ®Ā Elite unique is its heating capabilities. It allows you to recess your electric fireplace into the wall while also providing heat through the vent in the front of the unit. The SidelineĀ®Ā Elite offers two heat settings which quickly add heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. Please note the heater isnā€™t designed to be the primary heat source in your room or home. It's designed to warm up a cool evening, or bring the temperature of a room up a few degrees. The visual appeal and heat emitted by your electric fireplace place in addition to your homeā€™s primary heating source will provide your room with a cozy and calming aura. Your electric fireplaceā€™s heat settings can be controlled using the remote or the controls on the front of the unit, and you also have the option of controlling the heat by setting up the SidelineĀ®Ā Eliteā€™s built-in heat timer.

    Mounting and Use

    The versatile SidelineĀ® Elite electric fireplace offers two installation options. Although it is essentially designed for insertion in your wall, it can also be mounted on your wall. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided. We recommend placing your SidelineĀ® Elite 72 at least 20ā€ below your ceiling or 8ā€ below your mounted flat screen TV because of its heating feature.
