Does anyone have a gas fireplace in their house? We are looking into putting one in the basement as we are finishing it. We were thinking about putting in a ventless firelplace until we talked to the local fireplace salesmen who strongly discouraged us from going that route. Apparently they are only legal in half of the states and several cities in our state have outlawed them. They are unsafe for health especially if you have asthma. So plan b, I can install a second vertical chimney next to the existing furnace chimney and still have the fireplace where we wanted it, or we could move to an exterior wall and vent out the back. Brands that the locals have are Vermont Castings and Kozy Heat. I guess I'm just trying to get a feel for what you all think of a gas fireplace.
