The small unit should work great in your bathroom. They also make heated toilet seats. There are also heated units with a built in bidet. This would be ideal for one that "poops too much" (speaking from experience). Woot has sold them in the past at great prices, and I have seen them at Costco, though not lately.

I just checked Tigerdirect out. Was ready to place my order when I saw I was being charged 9.47 in shipping. Also had to click around for rebate info and hope my 30 dollars back arrives. So my final total was 79.00 before rebate. I think I would rather pay a bit more here on WOOT and not worry over getting my 30 dollars back. Rebate was good for only one.

I found the free shipping was for members of the Inner Circle costing 49.99 a year. I hunted for promo code for free shipping. Couldn't find any. I was going to need to pay 9.47 Did you experience free shipping? Tax added too. Not a great deal for me.

I'm trying to picture in mind if this would look good mounted on our fireplace that has been covered over by former residents. Hmm... might not be big enough.

thanks for the answers guys.

one more crucial question:
the wall-mountable fireplace...does it spew heat upwards, downwards, sideways or from all sides?

as in, kinda need to know to decide if it's feasible in the room i wanna put that thing up in...wouldn't want to singe my pretty light boxes or melt the corner off my closet, etc etc.

or worse: set myself ablaze in the middle of the night because my comforter caught fire.

your porcelain feels warm or cold based upon the ambient temperature of the room and the temperature of your skin is it touches the porcelain. if you kept the room warm enough ,then the porcelain would not feel cold. You could always put on something like what goes around water pipes to keep them from freezing.

12.5 amps at 120V. If the voltage drops to 110, which is allowed in the US, it's pulling 13.6 amps. Best to look for a timer rated at 15 amps.

loofmai wrote:Any estimates available for annual energy costs?



The Formula: To determine the cost of this or ANY 1500 watt appliance, use this formula (since 1500 watts = 1.5 KW) Use “1.5” X “(the cost of each KW hour on your bill)” = “the cost per hour of operation.

To calculate per hour: Take 1.5 X .10¢ (cost per kWh) = .15¢ per every hour you use the heater. Example: To calculate per day: Take .15¢ (cost per kWh) X 8 (average use per day if used properly) = $1.20 per day.

I bought a fireplace to hang on the wall in my living room. I guess I need to drill a hole to hide the cord? Secondly, is black our only option? I'd prefer the stainless look which comes up which I google the model.

My thoughts exactly. The fireplace sold out at Overstock for $129 so I am convinced its a good deal regardless of the math.

If you go to the product website http://lifesmartproducts.com/current-products/infrared-fireplaces/l-ef450-combo.html 800 or 1000 that is the question It clearly states in bright red at the bottom of the page that

halnwheels wrote:"That would depend not only on how much current this uses, but the power handling capabilities of your timer." How would anyone here know the second part?



The timer will have a rating printed on it. Compare that to the wattage of the heater to make sure the timer can handle it safely.

When you're at the store you will probably find timers sorted by regular and "heavy duty" or some label like that. Regular timers are for things like lamps. Heavy duty timers are for things like appliances and heaters that draw a lot of current. But ultimately you want to read the watt or amp ratings to make sure you are safe.

Does anyone have one of the fireplaces? I'd like to mount one in an unused real fireplace opening and need to know if the heat comes out of the front. If not, it wouldn't work in that build-in scenario.

Going by the pictures here and on other sites, it seems the heat is blown from the top behind the front panel (see shot with controls shown). I think you'll be heating up the chimney.

Sounds like you're concerned with output here. Input in this area would involve something very different.

Yes, but be aware that there's an issue with late-model 2012 iMacs and MacBook Pros when used with an HDMI fireplace that is greater than 30 inches in size. It isn't present in Lion, though, so if you haven't updated you're all set.

When the package arrived the remote control was smashed. I called Lifesmart customer service and they are sending me a new remote. The heater works well but the fan is loud and you can see the wiring for the heating element through the fake flames, which wrecks the illusion. I suppose I could try to take the thing apart, but I am not handy with tools and don't want to risk a fire.

engelwood39 wrote:Amazon shows the fireplace as "Lifesmart Dual Mount 800 Square Foot"

So which is it? 800 or 1000?

Home Depot also states 800.

"The new Lifesmart Wall Hanging Infrared Fireplace is Picture Perfect. This unique picture frame fireplace is also a powerful infrared heater rated to heat a room up to 800 square feet."

[MOD: This was the information we had from the vendor. We will contact them in the morning to double check the specs. That information isn't available on the LifeSmart site.]

My guess is one is based off a 8 ft. ceiling and the other off a 10 ft. ceiling. Since it is a square ft. rating but they actually have to rate off a cubic ft. rating. A Square ft. rating is more relate-able for the consumer because it is often known information.

e.g.: Cubic ft. of (10ft. x 10ft.) with an 8 ft. ceiling is the same cubic ft. as a (10ft x 8ft.) with a 10 ft. ceiling.

Just a possible guess?

I recently bought this heater for supplement heat in our basement and it works great!!! We spend a lot of our time in the basement and we are potty training a little one. We bought this because we had to turn our thermostat to 78 so we could let our little one run around with no pants for easier potty training. Since we put this heater in our basement, we were able to decrease the temp on the thermostat to 74 upstairs and 70/Low on the LifeSmart heater.
