$176 at Amazon

Let's talk about this fireplace: For starters, it's electric, so there's no hidden cost of adding a chimney or anything to use it. The fireplace doesn't create a real flame, so it doesn't give off harmful gas, dust or ashes. All you need to do is decide how you want it displayed. It can be recessed, semi-recessed or wall-mounted. Meaning, you can literally just screw it into your wall.

The fireplace uses LED lights with a large display to cause the flame to "burn." You can flip through 12 different colors of flames and different crystal colors to find the combination that works for you.

On to the heating part! The fireplace features a front heater blower with 750- and 1500- watt modes to allow you to generate some serious warmth over up to 400 square feet. Just adjust the modes with the handy remote control or touch screen, which includes options like a one to eight-hour timer, adjustable flame color, speed and sleep mode function.

The 36-inch fireplace weighs just 33 pounds, making it a project one person can handle. (Worth noting: There are other fireplace sizes, including 42-, 50- and 60-inches, and they're all on sale.)

This handy fireplace has a slew of fans who rave about everything from the heat generated to the overall look and feel. "Nice size and quality unit. Heat output is good," shared one. "Quiet with lots of settings for the flame and rock colors. Perfect addition to our bedroom for some extra heat when cutting back heating the whole house when you're just using your bedroom in the evening."

A fellow fan said that it "has the most beautiful color options and gives out some good heat!"
