Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this fireplace I shopped around and found that Home Depot had the best Black Friday deal on this fireplace so I was able to save a lot of money. This is actually the 2nd Paramount fireplace we purchased because we loved the first one so much (the other one was the smaller 40"). We ordered this online and the shipment came promptly exactly as I ordered. This fireplace produces a lot of heat and can heat up a room quickly (although you dont need to use the heater) and the 3 colored LED lights give you lots of options in terms of what color you want to display and the plastic "crystals" give it a nice elegant look. This fireplace completed our basement reno beautifully and looks like a million bucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to our home We purchased this fireplace recently and installed it into our master bedroom. We are very happy with the way it looks. We did not add the ‘media kit’ because it looks very odd! Instead we replaced it with our own black shiny river stones. We purchased vinyl wall planks from Home Depot as well (available online only) and are very pleased with the final result. My only concern is that sometimes when we switch on the fireplace the flame just ‘freezes’ rather than dance. Also the very loud beeping sound when changing features or turning it on or off is quite annoying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fireplace for the price point Bought the electric fire place back in November 2018 and well Christmas and the holiday season got in the way but it now finally installed and it looks great! We spent sometime making sure we had the back mounting plate in the exact place we wanted...lots of measuring The fireplace itself is great: awesome looking LED lights and the fan was not noisy as some other reviews have said We bought this particular fireplace because it vented out from the fireplace as opposed to venting up which most models do We are happy with this purchase and it helps it was purchased on Black Friday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I am very happy with this fireplace and while I have no idea how to get the colour to change to the number available with this unit, the ones I use look great. We were building a new bump out for the fireplace and gave the measurements from the instructions but they were slightly smaller than the measurements required for a full recess due to the size and the allowance for the wire for the plug/direct connection. Lucky for us we didn’t finalize anything until it was here. I would definitely recommend it as it looks great and works great but be prepared for the frustration of trying to get the crystals to stack without them falling. In the end we just went 2 high and kept the few extra crystals for later.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One major flaw We have a similar unit from Napoleon in our rental unit. Compared to the Napoleon, this one is more attractive: is has backlighting, and an additional color option over orange/blue. The thermostat feature is also nice. However, the heating fan is a lot noisier than the softer whirr of the Napoleon. More importantly, it makes a distinctive mechanical humming sound that is very unpleasant and makes it hard to relax. A great fireplace if you want it as a decorative feature only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will not mount flush I read the options before purchasing this item that said it could be hung, partial recess or flush mounted. During installation I realized that the final screws to secure the glass face plate were on the sides, which means you need a gap to fit your screw driver in to do so. The closest this unit gets to flush mount is 1 full inch from the wall. You will be left to either leave it sticking out 1 inch or build a 1 inch thick trim frame around it. I also noticed that the fan made the unit vibrate very loudly upon turning on the heat. I removed the unit and tightened some loose screws as it appeared that the outer case was vibrating. This fixed this. There is also a loud beeping sound when you touch a button on the remote to change the settings. It's about as loud as a microwave oven. This could be annoying if you wanted to shut it off or change settings while someone is sleeping in the house. Overall, It is a nice looking unit. The colours and flames are attractive looking. It does throw off a good amount of heat which I like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Features but issues with installation I just purchased this and was excited to get it. However, the mounting measurements are not correct, because the manufacturer has not allowed room for the lipped area that contains the electrical. This is not good when you are paying someone for their time to install it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable fireplace What a disappointment this fireplace is. We bought it in Feb 2019, installed it at beginning of Mar and within a week, it was making a loud noise when it was on. Today, 7 April, it doesn’t work anymore. We called Paramount in BC and left a voicemail for someone to call us back for warranty. It’s been a week and no one has called us back.

I am planning to mount a TV at lest 12 inches above the fireplace without a mantle. Both the TV and the fiepace are recessed in individual compartments. Will there be a problem to the TV due to the heat from the fireplace?

Asked by: Vijay
Hi, I don't have a TV above the fireplace but I don't think it will be an issue as the heat shoots out pretty far with the fan....fair warning though, fan makes quite a bit of noise when on.
