Gas Insert Size
We're looking to install a Gas Insert (e.g., Regency) into our existing wood burning fireplace. We're considering whether to go with a large insert that has BTU output range (38,000-20,000) or a medium sized one (30,000-15,000). Our existing fireplace dimensions are...Height:29", Width:36", Depth:22".
I tried searching the forum here for guidelines on insert size and room size but not so lucky. The fireplace is in a 15'x15' living room, however, it opens up to a 14'x13' dining room on opposite end.
I do like the appearance of the Regency E33 over the U32, and know I can turn the level down. I would appreciate advice if the large insert would be overkill and make the room too hot.
