I got one last year at Costco's. I had wanted a fireplace for a long time but since a real one was out of the question I got an electric one. It also has a heater in it that blows out hot air. It was a good price and I didn't have to buy the mantel piece seprately(like I would have had to if I went to Lowe's)the whole thing came together. Its a nice cherrywood and it looks good with my x-mas stockings hanging on it. I like the look of cherrywood but they come in white, black and even have onesthat will fit in the corner. Think about where it will go first and then try to picture it. Also Costcos has a lifetime warranty on all non computor items.

A friend of mine recent bought one at Lowe's similar to this:
with the exception that hers also has a propane tank and a remote control and cost around $500. I've been in her house when it's been on, and it really does heat up the room (the room she has it in is about 15 by 12 feet) quickly. The really cool thing is the remote control for starting the fire!

Sounds expensive to run - does it give out any heat?
I'm trying to find ways of reducing my electric bill - not raise it.
