When we started looking for fireplaces, we were really discouraged that there was not a gas fireplace that had a arched interior firebox. We found the HeatnGlo Gem, and were absolutely amazed at how well this fireplace looked, as well as how well it heats. Having this fireplace has dramatically decreased our energy bills, as it heats the room more efficiently than the furnace does. The store we got it at was very helpful too. The staff was more than friendly, and the quality of the installation, and the stone work that they did on it is amazing.
Though it is a direct vent unit, it cannot vent straight out of the back. Due to the design, it vents off of the top, and then out the wall horizontally. we would have liked the vent to be a little lower outside, but that is not really a big deal at all.
i'd recommend this dealer, and this unit to anyone, we love it.
