4 Star Review   By WarmAsToast on Home Depot - May 18, 2013   

The fireplace insert adds the nicest ambiance to the livingroom. I found myself even staring into the 'fire' reminiscing about family camping trips, very relaxing. It also does a great job of taking the chill off the room in the winter when the main heat system doesn't quite do it. It looks pretty realistic (esp when it's off), but of course you still know it's not. Though it can take you offguard when you're passing by and not thinking about it. I really like the look of the grate the 'logs' are in; the ember action is pretty good and can be adjusted with the remote control; the simulated fire it makes in the fireplace box is great; and the remote control is a huge plus. It's also lightweight so easy move around. Installation is a non-issue; it just comes out of the box to be set down and plugged in. Oh, and add the provided batteries to the remote. That's it. I would give it 5 stars if it were perfect, which for me would include: fire sounds, even more realistic looking, a longer power cord (who's got an outlet that close to the fireplace?!), no motor sound when the unit is on (there's a slight but noticeable motor sound in a quiet room -- I try to pretend it's the burning logs popping), and a quieter heater fan. As far as price goes, compared to other similar options on the market (I looked pretty extensively), I think this is the best value for the money. For what it is, the price might be a bit high. I definitely do not like the Duraflame logo smack on the middle front of the unit; would much rather it was on the side with the control panel. I've had the product now for about 6 months, and bottom line, I really do love this fireplace insert. I would purchase again. And if a new model came out that matched my 5-star criteria, I'd probably go for it up to $200.

Great Heat
5 Star Review   By RoseMarie on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2013   

I have 2 portable fireplaces which are run by gel fuel. I purchased 2 of these heaters and they are the best thing I bought all winter. One fireplace is in a back room, which is always cooler then the rest of the house. I put the heater on for maybe 2 hours and the temperature rises 3 to 4 degrees. The other one is in the living room, which is much larger but it still does the job of keeping us warmer. Excellent purchase.

Excellent supplemental heat!!!
5 Star Review   By likenthatbargain on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2013   

I bought this 20 In. Electric Fireplace insert by Duraflame a couple of months ago with the intention of converting my gas log fireplace that was not designed to put out heat. Strange as it seems, the gas log fireplace was designed only for esthetics! I took out all the pieces/parts of the gas log assembly and put this Duraflame heater in the fireplace itself. It has been an outstanding heat source ever since. I have not noticed a significant increase in my electric bill either. I could not be more pleased and WARM. The electric cord is 6 ft long and reached a plug nearby the firerplace. I used neutral colored cord cover to camoflage the black cord and bought a decorative fireplace screen in front of the open fireplace and it looks great. Just set the controls of the electric insert, turn it on, and then you can use the remote to turn it on and off after that. I ordered this insert online from Home Depot and it arrived in perfect condition and "plug and play" ready--no assembly. I would highly recommend this product as it looks very realistic especially when using camoflage items I mentioned. LOVE IT! I also use it with fair frequency and I expect it will last a long time.

If you are seeking a bit of ambience, this is it.
5 Star Review   By PuttinontheRitz on Home Depot - Feb 8, 2013   

Happy with this product. Wanted something to add some ambience to the room. Tried a different product from another store and had to return it becuase it was SO cheap looking. When I placed this in the fireplace, I partially pulled the screen which makes it look more "real". This actually throws a good amount of heat (although it is quite loud) and I like the way the light is refected in the back for a more realistic appearance. Handy remote control.

This product looks great and was easy to install.
5 Star Review   By nmbev on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

I have a fireplace for looks, only had fake logs installed so it changed the whole function when Duraflame insert was added. Very easy to install, just had to drill a hole to hide the plug and wire. Looks beautiful and gives off enough heat for the room on a cold day!

Not as good as expected.
4 Star Review   By Edward8 on Home Depot - Jan 16, 2013   

It looks great & pretty convincing that it is real. The heat output is a little disappointing. Even sitting in front of it isn't all that warming. Mainly fills the black hole & looks nice. Not much for performance. It is not quiet.

Duraflame Fireplace Insert
5 Star Review   By heyheyPH on Home Depot - Jan 8, 2013   

I have a regular fireplace, live in FL, and found it impossible to find a chimney sweep, which turned out to be a great thing, as I found this insert, and decided, no fuss, no mess to clean, might be a better option. Boy, was I right!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Not only is it beautiful and relaxing to look at, on the cold days, I turn on the heat option, and it warms up the room perfectly. This is not only great for nonfireplace owners, but a perfect insert for those who would rather be green, and use this in place of their traditional in-home fireplace!! Everybody who has been over to my place also LOVES it, I recommend it super highly!!

Realistic Flame, good SUPPLEMENTAL heat
5 Star Review   By Greg on Home Depot - Dec 6, 2012   

I purchased this to provide heat innn my 10x30 master bedroom. I heat my house with a wood buring insert and close my bedroom door when at work. It will bring the room back up to temp in 1-2 hours. It produces the most realistic flame I have ever seem from such a unit, and the logs look good when the unit is off. I would reccomend this for a MBR, and den, or a insulated sun porch.

meetws expectations
5 Star Review   By angie on Home Depot - Nov 21, 2012   

We got ours to put in an existing gas fireplace that we weren't using. It looks nice and adds ambiance to the room. The heater also helps knock the chill off the room it's in. The room has has cathedral ceiling and just never seems to be warm enough in the winter, but with the new heater you don't need a blanket to sit on the couch.

Exactly what I was looking for and at the right price.
5 Star Review   By texasgal on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

I wanted an electric fireplace insert for a reasonable price but was having a hard time finding one that was the right size for a decent price. This insert fit the bill exactly. Now it doesn't look like the real thing but close enough. I have visitors go over & hold their hands over it like a real fire though. It makes the living room very cozy on those cloudy winter days. I had an electrician put a plug in the fireplace so the cord would not be hanging out. I'm very satisfied as I don't believe in burning wood & we don't have gas in my neighborhood.

I love this fake electric fire!
4 Star Review   By Matthew on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012   

I stopped burning wood years ago. Dirty, expensive and unsafe. So my fireplace has sat empty for a long time. I considered gas logs, but they were too expensive and had too many drawbacks. I wanted to add some spot heating to my living area, plus some nice aesthetics to the room. I was concerned that this fireplace insert would look cheap and tacky. I was surprised by how nice I think it looks! They put out some good heat, and I love the hot ember effect, and the flame projection looks amazingly close to real. I deducted one star for these two minor cons: First, the fading embers is not a real smooth fade. It looks electronic, cycling between distinctive stages. That's okay, because you can turn the fade mode off and leave it at a steady glow. Second, the remote is funky to understand, and the instructions are no help at all. Here's the way it works. When you have the fading embers on, you cannot dim the brightness. You have to "pause" the fade, then you can dim the glow. Too bad you can't dim the fade. Also, the controls on the side of the logset work differently than the remote. It takes a bit to figure out, and can be tricky to remember how they work even after you've played with them for a while. But I have one setting that I like and just leave it there. Still a great addition to my living room and well worth the price. Oh, and one more thing. I bought a set of electric fireplace logs with heater by another manufacturer at the "other" major home improvement chain, and these are ten times better! The other ones looked really fake, I returned them and am keeping these! These look really good, especially considering the price! I'm happy!

Love it!
5 Star Review   By Bethy on Home Depot - Nov 10, 2012   

This electric fireplace was exactly what we were looking for. We purchased one from another home improvement store and actually returned it due to how cheesy it looked. This one, while it does not exactly resemble real fire is fairly close to the real thing. There are several setting for the flames, but I didn't notice a big difference between them. The heater is decent and takes the chill out of our living room on cold nights without being overbearingly loud. Overall I'm very happy we gave this product a shot.

Great Value for the Money
4 Star Review   By Barney on Home Depot - Oct 25, 2012   

My wife hates a real fire in the fireplace. "Pollutes the air, and is messy," she says. "Yes, my dear," I reply, although I've loved wood-burning fireplaces all my life. So we bought the Duraflame electric fireplace insert for $139 (Model DFI020ARU) and -- believe it or not -- she LOVES it! The lifelike flickering flames give our living room a nice homey look, and when it's chilly we turn on the heater. I give it four stars instead of five because the heat output doesn't live up to expectations. I would recommend it, though. AND SO WOULD MY WIFE!

Love this fireplace log
5 Star Review   By riverlady on Home Depot - Oct 9, 2012   

The Duraflame Electric Fireplace log insert was easy to install in our existing fireplace. We took out our propane logs and that took a little time, but then we just put the electric logs in the fireplace and plugged it in. It works beautifully. We have not had cold weather yet to run the heat for very long, but it seems to give more heat than I expected from the other reviews. We elevated the legs on lava rock that we already had in the floor of our fireplace and we hope that solves the problem of overheating that some reviews mentioned. So far we love it. It looks much more real than we expected behind the mesh screen of our fireplace. Several people who have seen it want one.

Good Quality, Reasonable Price
4 Star Review   By CoJoe on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2012   

First, a dose of reality...this is an electric fireplace, so ignore hopelessly optimistic types who proclaim "looks like a real fire!" It doesn't...the only thing that does is, well, a real fire. It does, however, have a pleasant and relaxing glowing embers, flickering flame effect. If you're ok with that, you should consider this unit. We bought it b/c we didn't want to mess with wood or gas fires. We have a vintage Malm fireplace, and the Durflame electric fireplace fits nicely inside. Though we often use it in "flames only" mode, it does have a decent heater for chilly nights. We find it relaxing to sit together with the fireplace on, and enjoy a quiet evening of music and conversation.
