This space heater is not only great in bringing extra heat you need to a room, but it adds to the decor as well. Children can't get burned on it when viewing the fire either. I especially enjoy this heater the first thing in the morning when I go out to my computer and it heats up the room quite well. The grandchildren like sitting in front of it thinking they are sitting in front of the fire. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone needing additional heat in the winter.
