This stove is equipped with all the allure and ambiance of an old style parlor wood stove without the troubles and mess. Only an electric stove can be set up and moved around any room where you will need that extra heat. High performance is part of the DS5629 feature package. Its effective 1,500-watt fan forced heater can warm a room as much as 400 square feet while its chilled to the touch surfaces denote that people and pets stay harmless. On warmer nights, one can use just the flame with no heat to get pleasure from the peaceful flickering of the flames. Unlike wood and gel stoves, there is no mess with the DS5629 and no issues concerning running out of fuel or having to purchase expensive wood or gel. It costs only 3 cents for each hour with the flame running, 8 cents for every hour with both flame and heat (according to average national residential electricity prices).
