Southern Enterprises Cartwright Electric Fireplace FE9287
The Cartwright Mission Fireplace Model FE9287 makes our best list because its classic design fits into just about any living space. On top of that, this model easily converts from a flat wall fireplace to a corner fireplace with the adjustable mantel shelf. This fireplace is great for smaller rooms where space is limited. The mantel, supported by elegant crown molding, can hold up to 85 pounds or a flatscreen television as large as 47 inches. Faux slate inserts encompass the 23-inch wide and 20-inch tall firebox, and handsome espresso-finished columns surround it. This electric fireplace stands 40-1/4 inches tall, 45-1/2 inches wide, and when installed against a flat wall, has a depth of 15-1/2 inches. The depth measurement changes to 26-1/2 inches when installed in a corner. The heater emits between 1,500 and 5,000 BTUs while only using 12-1/2 amps. The Cartwright Mission fireplace comes with a remote control equipped with an adjustable thermostat, and features a realistic flame with an adjustable brightness level. This unit plugs into any standard electrical outlet, and has a safety overload protector that shuts the unit off automatically should it overheat.
