GAS Fireplace Recommendation
I am new to this site and forum and have found many, many helpful hints on this site over the past few weeks. I am hoping to get some much needed advice on a gas fireplace.
My DW and I are in the process of rebuilding a house that was destroyed by a fire. We had a wood burning FP in that house and after the house burned down, the smell of burning wood has lost its charm on both of us.
We are in the process of selecting a gas FP and have no idea what to look for. We spent some time in a showroom and were more confused afterwards than before. Choice such as non-vented and direct vented, style etc. are all getting very complicated. Which brand to choose and which venting style are uppermost in our minds. Why would we vent rather than not? What product delivers the best bang for our buck?
Please, please help!!
Happy New Year and many thanks.
