Replace Wood Burner for Gas

Posted by DIY_GUY_419 (My Page) on

Hello guys,

We have a huge family room, 17x25. It has a high ceiling, about 17 ft i believe,

Any how, there is a wood burner fireplace in it that I just don't use and would rather have gas.

It used to have a 20 inch high hearth in front of it (I ripped it out),
We want to put in a gas fireplace at ground level, built into the wall.

How much are we looking at?
I was at a local Fireplace store and he showed me some electric fireplaces as well that you can run with a 240w line. Anyone try those?

Should we go direct vent, or b-vent?

Waiting for all your awesome replies!!

I had a wood burning unit that looked just like the one you have. I had it replaced with a propane gas fireplace and the total price with installation ran $4,258.
