Are you considering buying an electric fireplace? Then consider the Napoleon EFL50H for it’s great value for money.
The EFL50H is a large linear wall mount fireplace with all the latest features such as LED lighting. Watch the Napoleon EFL50H video review for details about the Napoleon Azure 50, features, benefits, installation and operation.
The main advantage of the Azure 50 is that it can be mounted just about anywhere. Unlike wood or gas fireplaces no external venting is required, all you need is an electric socket within reach. If you are feeling more adventurous the EFL50H can be partially recessed. The heat vents from the top of the front face of fireplace and while it is capable of heating a room up to 400 sqft. It is really more decorative than a major source of heat for the house, especially the way electricity prices are going. You can however use it for zonal heating and only heat what is in the immediate area of the fire without heating the whole house.
The remote control enables you to change the colour of the flame with the option of blue, orange or a combination of the two. The remote also sets the temperature for the heater and most importantly the flame can be operated without heat enabling the fire to be used all year round. In fact I find the fire to be most useful brightening up the basement without the heat on. Depending on the size of the get together and the time of year heat isn’t always necessary or welcome.
Unlike more sophisticated models the EFL50H has no display telling you what setting the fire is set to. No big deal but it is useful sometimes to have feedback to tell you the click you made on the remote control actually worked. The fireplace can’t be fully recessed and sticks out into the room a few inches.
Other than that is does what it says on the can.
I see a lot of this style of fireplace in coffee shops, bars and restaurants. This the kind of fireplace you see in Tim Horton’s, Swiss Chalet or your local bar
Update Napoleon EFL50H
– Napoleon superseded the EFL50H in late 2015, but if you can find one in stock or on Kijiji it represents a great buy. Looking forward to getting my hands on the NEFL50FH Napoleon’s updated version of the EFL50H.
