The 18" fireplace insert is our basic model and does not include the special features that the 23, 26, or 42" fireplace inserts do. They have the same energy requirements and heat the same 400 square footage but can only be turned on or off at the control panel. They do not include a remote control or adjustable settings.
The heat and flame function separately from one another. The above images represent the heat and lights independently. In order to be CSA compliant, a light must be visible while the heater is in operation. There is a small round light on the control panel that fulfills this requirement.
Below are videos for the Chicago Fireplace TV Stand; this is our most popular model featuring the 18" insert.
