Heat n' Glo Escape - too hot on lowest setting?
I am looking for a clean face gas fireplace and considering the Heat n' Glo Escape 42". I like the fireplace for its looks but I am concerned about it being too hot even at its lowest setting of 35,000 btus.
We used to have a wood burning fireplace and I enjoyed sitting by it but it seems like some of these gas units get really hot. I just don't have any sense of how hot 35,000 btus is. I have a large living room with 12' ceilings which is fairly open, could I sit within a few feet of the fireplace comfortably with it on for 45 minutes to an hour or will I be roasting in that amount of time?
