But my question is what is a good shallow electric fireplace? Have looked all over the internet and cant find any real installation instructions that tell what kind of clearances are needed.
I retrofitted a fireplace in my entertainment center. My neighbour had a firplace that was purchased at Canadian Tire and was complete with a mantle. I removed the mantle and just used the fireplace to insert. It fit like a glove. Approx measurements were 20"W X 22"H X 8"D.
