electric fireplace – Southern Enterprises 2017

The Southern Enterprises FA4333 wall-mount electric fireplace is small and missing a few features that most units have. It has two heat settings and a Btu output of 4,400, which is lower than most on our lineup, so it can’t heat an area as fast as units with a larger output. However, it can still heat a large living area – up to 400 square feet.

Summary

You get log inserts with this electric fireplace, which makes the fire look more realistic. However, the flames aren’t lit by LED, so they may not be as vibrant as other units’ flames. The flames do flicker, though, and you can even dim the brightness, which is a fun feature for adjusting the mood.

This wall-mounted electric fireplace is smaller than the best electric fireplaces on our lineup, but it’s a good option for a small wall. It measures 26 inches wide and 20.5 inches high, and it sticks out from the wall 5.5 inches. It weighs 28 pounds, which is pretty light for an electric fireplace.

The unit lacks a couple of convenience features we like to see, but these omissions aren’t deal breakers. For instance, you don’t get touchscreen controls on it. You have to access the controls on the side of the fireplace if you’re not using the remote control, which is a bit less convenient than the front.

This electric heater fireplace doesn’t have a timer function either, so you have to remember to turn it off before leaving the house. However, if it does get too hot, it automatically shuts off to prevent overheating, which could cause wall damage or start a fire.

The hardware you need to mount this on the wall is included, but you’ll need a few tools to get it done. Southern Enterprises is very easy to contact for help. You can contact the company by phone and email, and you can even view the product manual online along with some FAQs. This unit has the standard one-year warranty.

The Southern Enterprises FA4333 electric wall-mount fireplace is pretty small and lacks some conveniences, but it can still heat a large living space. However, its Btu output doesn’t allow it to heat the area as fast as fireplaces with higher outputs.
