The Duraflame Electric Log Set does not make any sound except for the minor hum of the blower. Northern does sell a Kracklebox fireplace sound system (#172950) to provide convincing, realistic sounds of a crackling log fire.

There is no crackle sound. The fan makes noise but it is not too objectionable. You can add the Kracklebox sound unit, but I have not tried it because of the cost.

The bottom front. What looks like the black space between the front 'cast iron legs' at the bottom is the blower exit port, so it blows warm air straight out into the room along the floor.

The blower is nicely concealed behind a finely perforated grate underneath the metal-looking, vertical "rungs" of the grate holding the logs. You can't see it -- you can obviously hear it when it's running, but it's not so loud that it's annoying when running.
