what btu size gas fireplace zone 5 ct
Thank you to those that answered by ? r/t Rumford looking zero clearance f/ps. Now I have a couple more ?.
My LR is small, 13 x 15 and broken up with 2 room openings and one door. Ceilings are 7' 3" tall (you read that correctly - 7'3") and the vent will have to go up through the roof. The only wall I have for a fireplace is a 13' wall with a 12' length of older cast iron baseboard that will need to be built around for the fireplace. Probably a raised hearth sort of thing to enclose that section of the baseboard.
My ? is what BTU size fp will be comfortable and not cook us out of the room? I've stayed in some nice B&B places with gas f/p and they got so hot I ended up opeing all the windows in the dead of a frigid winter so I wouldn't cook.
Last ?, what are opinions on 36" units? Too large for my room?
I have done lots of research and just end up getting more and more confused and to make it worse showrooms don't carry much to base comparisons. Here's what I've liked so far: Heatnglo Slimline 550, 32"; (poss. SL750 if 36" will fit and Heatnglo Escape 36" (what a georgeous unit!).
Thank you in advance and Happy Thanksgiving!
