Unhappy Fireplace space heater

When you are sitting on the sofa, can you feel any warmth from the fireplace space heater all the way across the room?

No...my heater will gently warm the room, but you will only feel the heat if close to the fireplace blower.

I am thinking about taking my "fireplace" out and replacing it with a bookcase. A space heater can be moved around as needed.

During the winter we use space heaters because electric is paid for so I use that as much as possible. Me personally I would not take out the fireplace just add a heater. But do what you feel is best for your comfort.

When you have no propane you can burn the books to get warm. LOL

This fireplace heater is designed to warm the area and not heat it up during a winter blizzard. I have left mine on 24 hrs a day while parked in the Yellowstone area lows in the high 30's at night and it kept my rig warm.

X2 on NOT to remove the fireplace and replace it with a portable.

A bookcase? You will be picking them up off the floor every time you arrive at your next destination. My fireplace is behind wheels, most bouncy place in all RV's.

It's nice to be able to use the fireplace and not listen to the propane heater running.. Just my 2 cents worth..
