Extremely satisfied with this infrared fireplace heater.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After much research and consideration, and after a disappointing purchase of a smaller infrared heater, I purchased the Duraflame Chandler 23" fireplace heater. This purchase was for my mom who is 83 years old. She has a woodstove in her family room and we came to a mutual agreement that last winter was her last winter to build and maintain fires in the woodstove. It had become too physically taxing for her to continue doing so. She is very pleased with the Duraflame Chandler fireplace heater. It keeps the family room (where she and her sister, who is 85, spend most of their hours)at a toasty temperature. My mother also loves being able to watch the fireplace "flames" and is really enjoying this heater. The adjustable thermostat and remote control are great additions that were not available on the first infrared heater that I purchased (and returned). Everyone who has seen the fireplace give it high marks for functionality and beauty. My mom received her first electric bill that encompassed a complete month of using the fireplace on a daily basis. The bill only went up about $11.00 and all of that cost was not totally attributed to the addition of the fireplace heater. I recommend this heater highly!
