Hi All, I stumbled across this site today and thought you might be able to help. We currently have a wood fireplace without doors or a damper because the previous owners had installed a wood stove using the existing chimney and bricked over the original fireplace. While I like the idea of the wood stove I did not trust it to be safe based on the other work the previous owners did around the house and it stuck way out into the middle of a long narrow living room making furniture placement, etc difficult. So, we've removed all the brick and are considering our options. After much deliberation, we think we want a gas fireplace in there. There is, in fact, a gas line running to or very near to the fireplace as it is (option when the house was built?). I've been trying to find ratings/rankings of gas fireplace manufacturers with limited success. I was hoping you would have some suggestions. We're looking for something that would heat efficiently and look not entirely fake. We've looked at some Heatilator models as well as some Regency models but that's about it. Any brands in particular with especially good reputations? Or ones to be avoided? Any advice/suggestions/insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
