I'm looking for a gas fireplace insert to put in my brick fireplace. I have received proposals for a Lopi Fireplace Xtrordinair 616 and a Majestic Trilliant. I like the fact that the Trilliant has about 16% more viewing area than the 616.
Does anybody have any experience with the reliability of the inserts from these 2 companies you can provide?
Also, any information on how loud the blowers are would be appreciated as well.
Thank you very much!
