Pallet Stove vs. Direct vent FP
We are currently getting our house remodeled. We used to have a Whitfield Pallet stove and it was working great. But location of Fireplace is now changed so my contractor is saying that to reinstall Whitfield pallet stove in new place it will coast $800 for installation + $400 for materials. Does this sound right ? So, his suggestion is to go for a new Direct vent fireplace instead of spending on reinstalling pallet stove. This new one is going to cost around $1700. I am not able to decide which way to go? Please help.
Thanks in advance.
