The maintenance-free Sideline 72 is also ideal for commercial use and adds ambiance to restaurants, hotels and reception areas.

Realistic LED Flames, 3 Flame Colors

The top rated Sideline Electric Fireplace collection features Touchstone's exclusive, natural-looking flame. Easily adjust the flame intensity and flame colors with a tap of the remote control or front control panel. Five flame intensity settings, from quiet ember to full flame, add to the realistic look. Set the mood with three flame colors: orange, blue and orange-blue.

Includes Both Faux Log and Glass Crystals -
Exclusive to All Touchstone Sideline® Series Fireplaces

The Sideline® Series Electric Fireplaces come with glass crystals and a faux log set, so you can choose the best hearth media for your room style. The glass crystals add a modern look, while the faux logs add a traditional touch.

Built-in Heater

Instantly add coziness and warmth to your room. The Sideline Electric Fireplace's built-in 5100 BTU heater adds supplemental heat to a range of 400 square feet. While the fireplace is not designed to be the primary heat source, the powerful heater will take the chill off a bedroom, finished basement or bathroom.

All Season Use

The dual control flame and heat settings work independently, so you can enjoy the beautiful flame display, with or without the heat, in any climate, all year long.

Cool to the Touch Glass Front

A safer alternative to a wood or gas burning fireplace, the glass front remains cool to the touch for a truly relaxing experience. More Electric Fireplace benefits

FAQs — The Sideline 72 80015 72" Recessed Electric Fireplace

Q: How far do I need to mount my fireplace below my flat screen TV?

Answer: Touchstone and most flat screen TV manufacturers recommend you place your TV 24 inches above any of our wall hanging electric fireplaces where the heat blows out of the top of the unit. We recommend 12 inches of clearance for our in-wall recessed models where heat blows out the front of the unit.

Q: Where can I find instillation instructions or detailed spec sheets?

Answer: You can find all the info needed for your Touchstone Electric fireplace in the manual that came with your unit. If you are missing or misplaced your manual, simply go to the product page of the unit you have on our website where you can find the manual and spec sheet.

Q: How do I arrange the crystals in my fireplace?

Answer: You can arrange the crystals in any manner that you wish.

Q: Can I use log set and crystals together?

Answer: Our electric fireplaces are designed so that only the log set or crystals are used, not both at the same time.

Q: Which fireplaces have a built-in thermostat?

Answer: The Sideline Elite and ValueLine series.
