I have been scouring the forms and trying to figure out the best type of gas insert to purchase. My fireplace size is 33w x 28h and already plumbed with gas. Main objective is visual, with heat as a second as my home is a 1300 sf rambler. I have gone to several retailers in Seattle WA and have only found 2 that were really helpful. Best salesperson I worked with sold Heat-n-Glo and Quadra and I am leaning towards the Heat-n-Glo. The Monessen seems to have the best view of what I have seen, but it doesn't get too favorable of a rep on the forum. The qualm I am having on the Heat-n-Glo is that this dealer will only sell it with a mesh screen that covers the glass for safety. They are the only ones that have required this. The unit doesn't have that large of an opening. Thanks for the input!
