Best electric fireplace

msarkieDecember 4, 2011

I'm in the market for an electric fireplace insert. It will be built into a custom surround, needs to be about 24x30. My priority is a realistic looking flame; don't need auxiliary heat, air cleaner, etc., although the crackling sound would be nice.

I don't have a dealer in my area where I can go and look at models in person. I've searched all over the internet and even looked at their "fire" videos, but can't really make a decision on a $500-700 item from that.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
