too add to LP usage, its also very corrosive, its rusts everything, and thermocouples last half as long as NG units.
Yeah, that's what I heard from my insert dealer. Regular maintenance seems more important with LP fired inserts.

I'm deciding on a direct vent gas fireplace and am narrowed it to several companies. I have read quite a few postings and I want to know if I'm in the right "neighborhood" on a quality product. Here are 4 that I have thought about:
1. Harman
2. Mendota
3. Regency
4. Napoleon.
Any and all comments are welcomed.

I just found out that an insert is more suitable. The wife wants a large glass area and KozyHeat Jackson xxl has the largest glass area. Any comments on this model?

Beware of Kozy Heat. I have a Kozy Heat zero clearance gas fireplace that is not working, the unit will soot up after 1 hour or so. After repeated calls to the dealer and manufacturer they have no clue what is wrong with the unit.

If it is sooting it is due to a venting problem or the logs not in like the Manufacture specs
