KW Winchester II Electric FP Space Heater EF5524KD

Rating: 2 out of 5
  • Currently 2.0/5.0

The KW Winchester II Electric FP space heater model number EF5524KD is a heater for small spaces that gives the illusion of a fireplace. Features include an adjustable thermostat, a wood panel exterior, flame control intensity, the ability to heat with the flame and a 32" mantel. The exterior is an oak finish, making it the ideal electric fireplace option for anyone with traditional décor. The heater is portable, but not small enough to carry from room to room like many small space heaters. This makes it ideal for an area that needs additional heating and some stylish décor. The portable feature, though, is ideal if you plan to move and want to take the heater with you when you go.

The downside of the heater is it is a cheap substitute for a real fireplace or wood-burning stove. If you are shopping for a space heater, this is a great stylish option. However, if you have your heart set on the ambiance and performance of a traditional fireplace, yet lack the funds or ability to install a fireplace, settling for this will be a disappointment. It looks cheap compared to a traditional mantel and fireplace. It is a lot more expensive than a traditional space heater, yet works the same. This heater also gives a false sense of security. Many people who would never consider space heaters because they think they are dangerous use this heater thinking it is safer because of its fireplace appearance.

There are temperature control settings on the fireplace, so you can turn it on, set it and leave it to warm as necessary. If you are looking for a space heater, this is a great option to avoid the unsightly utilitarian look of a cheaper heater. It is good for heating just one room, typical of a portable space heater. It does not require any maintenance and is an option for those who want the appearance of a mantel and fireplace without having to have it cleaned or serviced.
