fireplace blowers a thing of the past???
We're looking to replace our existing logs/blower in our masonry fireplace with something that's more quiet and efficient. When we visited our first retailer (a home/patio store)today, the salesperson (naturally) wanted to sell us the top model of logs with a remote control, installation...yada, yada, yada. When we inquired about logs with a blower, he said they're a thing of the past. ??? After pressing further, he said he didn't think he carried any manually operated log systems. Has anyone else found this, or was he just trying to sell us the "dee-luxe" logs?
