With cooler temperatures comes soaring utility bills, especially when you are from the mid-west like myself. It often forces many people to look for heating alternatives to help cut those prices. For me, we live in an older farmhouse. To say it was a large home would be an understatement. There is one room in my home that seems to be drafty that in order to make it a comfortable temperature, the rest of the house is unbearably warm. After researching different things I could do, I came to the comclusion that an electric fireplace would be the answer.
AKDY is an online store which sells a variety of items on Amazon. They offer items such as faucets, showerheads, bathtubs, sinks, fireplaces, and much more. When I reached out to this company, I was greeted from someone by the name of Tim. Tim was very pleasant to talk to as well as insightful. When I asked to review a fireplace, Tim kindly granted me the opportunity. Please feel free to check out the variety of items offered from this storefront by clicking here.
I was sent the AKDY® 36″ Wall Mount Type Tempered Glass Adjustable 2 Setting 1500W LED Flame Effect Bedroom Electric Fireplace Heater w/ Remote Control Log Set. This comes with the hardware as well as the mount to offer an easy mounting experience. All together, it took me no more than a few minutes to get this up. I will say, this is pretty heavy, so I would recommend having someone help you out. This offers the following features:
- 7 style color Modern LED lights Flame Effect
- Includes a Remote Control (need 2 AAA batteries, not provided)
- Wall Mount type
- 2 Heat Level Setting
- 1 year Parts Warranty against manufacture defects
Here are the measurements for this item is you are wondering if your space would work for this item:
Once I got this hung up, it was time to give this a test for a little while. It is pretty sturdy on the mount which was fantastic. The remote control is a smaller sized one which is perfect to store just about anywhere. Button functionality is very good on this item. I don’t notice the buttons on the remote control sticking at all. The settings on this offer something to suit any mood. I really love the variety of settings with this item and I have not seen one like this that offers that much variety. The LED lighting on the side as well offers a veariety and really sets the ambiance whether trying to get romantic or just wanting to relax after a hard day. So, how does this throw heat? One word,.. FANTASTIC. Temperatures this week have been very chilly which made it the perfect time to put the heat portion to this item to the test. The other features checked out to my standards. Normally with such cool temperatures, my feet would feel like icicles and I would be in my warmest sweatshirt. With this on, it has kept the room comfortably warm. Nothing too overwhelming, but I do have it on the lower setting right now. I am nice and warm and compliments to this wonderful item for the room.
It is too early to tell how much of an impact this is going to have when it comes to the utility costs, but just alone not having the whole house unbearably warm to keep the one room where family is the most warm is well is offering benefits to my household.
