Electric fireplace in Rockwood 8296SS

Just wondering if anyone has ever installed an electric fireplace in the cabinet under where the tv is on the wall? Heard they really make a difference since its runs off the electric and does a good job heating.
Any experience from anyone?

I use the fireplace for ambiance a lot...but only occasionally for heating purposes. (then again...I pay the electric at the campgrond too)

I love mine. We use it to heat the main area if it's anywhere from 40-60 degrees outside...anything below that, it doesn't do too much, but it is great for ambiance.
