    For basic installations, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver, hammer, level, measuring tape, electric drill, pliers, and a ladder.

    Wall mount fireplaces can weigh up to 50 lbs., so it's important they are installed securely.

    For custom installations, you may need building supplies such as framing and caulking materials.

    1. Select a Power Supply

      Decide if you will be hard wiring or plugging in your electric fireplace.

      If you are hard wiring, we recommend using a professional electrician. If you choose to plug it in, you will generally need a 15 amp, 120 Volt outlet located near the fireplace. If you do not have an outlet, it may be best to consult a licensed electrician.


      Select a Wall Location

      Select a location that is not susceptible to moisture, dust, and is away from things that may catch fire or block openings. For the best look, install the fireplace out of direct sunlight and away from overhead lighting.


      Test the Fireplace

      Remove the fireplace, hardware and all packaging materials before installation. It's a good idea to test the fireplace to make sure it works correctly before mounting. Plug in the unit and turn on the fireplace using the control panel or remote. Store the fireplace in a safe and dry location until you are ready for installation.


      Wall Hanging Installation

      Mount the bracket onto the wall, and then use a level to make sure it is even. We recommend securing the screws into the wall studs where possible, otherwise, use plastic anchors. Ensure there are a minimum of two wall studs for a secure installation. Once the bracket is secure on the wall, lift the fireplace and hang it on the bracket. Check for stability, ensuring the fireplace will not pull free from the wall.


      Recessed Installation

      First, review the dimensions of the wall opening and your fireplace to make sure it will fit properly.Once you are ready to install, remove the front glass panel. Follow your fireplace’s owner’s manual for any specifications on removing the glass. Lift the fireplace and slide into your opening. Screw the fireplace into the wall through the mounting holes. If the fireplace comes with media such as logs, glass, or embers, place these inside the fireplace at this point. When the media is placed how you would like, install the front glass panel back onto the front. Again, refer to the owner’s manual for any specifics.
