When I first used it I was thrilled. The flames looked good and the heat it put out was just what I was looking for. However, when I turned it off, I touched the shelf above it and nearly burned my fingers. The next day I called the company to see what the clearances were and was told I could put something directly above it, there were no requirements for any gaps. There is a vent at the top of the unit where heat comes out, in addition to the one in the front. Rather than wanting to set my entertainment center on fire, I don’t use the heat feature, which is a shame because that was one of the major reasons I got it. Also my Directv box sits on that shelf and I’m concerned that all that heat could damage the unit. So the flames look nice, but don’t use the heat.
