Factory-Built/ Zero-Clearance Fireplace Q's?
When we built our home about a year ago we had them put in a zero clearance fireplace... here is a pic similar to ours:
I would like to get something like a heatilator...but they are ugly, and my fireplace isnt very big. It is 16" deep x 17" tall x 22" wide in back and 29" wide in front(tapered)... Is there an alternative or do you know someone who custom builds one? Or can my firplace be removed and someone has a retrofit or new fireplace to go in place of it. It works great for some heat but ALOT of heat goes up the chimmney...which would be nice to heat with sometimes or when we have a power outage!
