This is a review about the Burley Normanton 174R-BL Electric Fire. It's a Remote Controlled, Log Effect, Inset Fire with a Fan Heater.
Before I talk about the settings and specifications of the fire I am going to discuss the actual unboxing and assembly of the fire.
The fire arrived in two attached boxes with various parts in each box, which I thought was a great idea as Burley had actually taken the time to carefully package the items so that there would be no chances of any breakages during delivery of the item.
Inside 'Box 1' was the main body of the fire, the remote control and a package containing screws, a hook and metal wire (to attach the fire securely to a wall). All of the items were tightly packed in bubble wrap to ensure that they were protected against any damages. There were also the instruction pages in this box but to be honest, I only glanced over them as the assembly and operation of this fire is pretty simple.
Inside 'Box 2' was the front faceplate for aound the fire and there was also another smaller box inside 'Box 2' which held the two piece fire grate which was again all wrapped up safely in bubble wrap.
All the pieces set out and the fire was easily assembled in under two minutes, the faceplate snapped on securely with the help of 4 strong, round and also moveable magnets, the fire grates just pushed into place on the front and the power cord needed to be plugged in the back and then the wire slipped under one of the 3 'arched' holes on the back of the fire - Plug In and Go!
The back of the fire impresses me, the holes that are set into it for the wire to feed through, there is one on each 'side' of the back of the fire and one on the very back, which I think is brilliant as the connection end of the cord is situated under the fire and then you can pick the best side to feed the wire out of, depending on where your plug socket is situated. Having the design in this way means that there is no large connector at the back of the fire and no wires doubled back on themselves so you can lead it to a plug socket, meaning that there is no need for compromise and the fire can sit flush against the wall if you need it to, depending on the type of fireplace that you have.
The fire is an Inset Fire with an Inset Depth of 98mm, as it stands straight out of the box it's 59.5cm High, 49.8cm Wide and 17cm Deep. The fire fits in a standard fireplace, it cannot be wall mounted and it is not freestanding.
It's 1260W with a heat output of 1200W and is a Log Effect, Fuel Bed Fire with a Lumen Flame Effect and has three different settings; Light, Light & Flame and Light, Flame & Heat. To activate the heat setting you only need to adjust the thermostat located just underneath the hood of the fire to the required setting and then use the remote to switch to the output you want. The remote control is easy to use as it only has two buttons, one is an on/off and one is for the 3 settings mentioned, press once for setting one, twice for two and three times for the third.
The fire has an on/off switch which is located inside the fire grate, underneath the fire, unless this is switched on, the remote control will not work. Personally, I have been bypassing this switch and just using the wall socket to switch the fire off completely when I have needed to.
Overall, personally, I love this fire, the design is Classically Modern, the flame and log effect is eyecatching and beautiful and the heat output from it is fantastic! It really warms the room quick and the fan in it is not noisy at all!
It's a FABULOUS Fire that I would highly recommend to all.
Pros: Ease to use, Easy Assembly, Good build quality, Looks good, QuietCons: None
