Some advice on picking type of gas fireplace please!
We are adding a great room on and will be adding a gas fireplace. Our requirements are....
1) We do not want the cost of full masonry but we do want the most realistic looking fireplace and flame.
2) We do not want much heat (due to seating setup).
3) The look is important, we don't want it just looking like a box shoved into the wall.
4) We don't like the obvious glass look of some (but can deal with softening the glass with doors). So our questions are....
Do we go direct vent or fully vented? What are the negatives of each.
Who are the quality manufacturers and are there any specific models that fit our needs. Thanks
