. . . unless what you have is actually an entire unit that came with the logs as a package, in which case it probably cannot be changed.

Did you change it out already? Can you post a photo of what you have?

Great question. I've never done one of these myself. Have you had someone out to look at it yet?

- I know this is an old question, but did you get any answers?

I am perplexed by the reference to "dual" system. Are you talking about a wood burning fireplace with a gas starter?

@mzmary66, I have no idea what the image above has to do with your question, but yes, you can hang a TV over a wood burning fireplace.

Specifically, it is usually easier to hang a TV over a prefab. ("Zero Clearance") fireplace than a masonry one, but either is possible.

I would google for all of the companies local to you that carry and/or install gas fireplaces in your local area. Look at their websites and call them for information. Go and visit the ones that sound like they have something that meets your criteria. Once you have looked at them, google those brands for reviews and information. It doesn't help to do a lot of online looking up front if the product cannot be obtained and installed in your local area - IMHO.

I agree with Deborah.

I wouldn't rely solely on online help. It is very limited and often wrong.

Going to a competent and professional fireplace person should help. If you are wary about your local pros, it doesn't hurt to check for online reviews (at the risk of contradicting myself)

To find the best in the business, try your local National Fireplace Institute experts to guide you through the selection process. Here is a regional search engine: http://nficertified.org/pages_consumers/consumers-1.cfm

NFI-certified professionals have to go through a fairly tough certification process to receive their badges, and have to keep up continuing education or re-test to keep their certifications.

Having said all of that, I can recommend one family of companies in particular that has several models that likely will work and have modern media options:

Fireplace Xtrordinair: http://www.fireplacex.com/ProductGuide/FuelTypeOverview.aspx?fueltype=gas&fueltab=0

Lopi: http://www.lopistoves.com/productselect.aspx?fuel=gas-insert

Avalon: http://www.avalonfirestyles.com/productselect.aspx?fuel=gas-insert

You'll still probably want some help with sizing and installation, information, so you can do a dealer search on any of those websites.

There just aren't that many off-the-shelf options for a 2-sided corner fireplace like you have, other than complete replacement. The least complicated option is a simple gas burning log set, or perhaps something modern like shown below.

Most areas in the US allow open front fireplaces. Are you in California or Denver or some other place where open fireplaces are banned?

If so, I would recommend instead a direct-vent fireplace with a similar media, like below:

First of all, nice project, Charles Cunniffe Architects.

There will be some radiant heat from any fire. Radiant heat travels as sub-visible light, so the area immediately in front of the fireplace will be warm. At the same time, heated room air and the exhaust from the gas burner go up the flue, so there is heat loss.

There are two solutions to this. If you must have an open front, many parts of the country allow unvented gas fireplaces, which burn cleanly enough that they can exhaust to the room. I don't necessarily recommend them, for air quality reasons, but they are a good problem solver where nothing else is possible.

There other, more preferable option in my opinion, is a direct vent gas fireplace, which will have a sealed front glass panel. It will have good efficiency and realism without the indoor air quality concerns.

Well here is how it turned out, I think you'll agree quite the transformation. We went quite contemporary with orange walls and a tiled fireplace, with bright white trim work. Thanks for all your ideas.

Thank you for your comment. With this type of pre-fab masonry fireplace (Isokern) the heat isn't much of an issue as long as you have a decent sized stone mantel. I'd say at least 12", it also helps to recess the TV in the wall above.

We make the fireplaces from either cast limestone or cast concrete depending on the location that it is being placed in.

Coast Road, thank you for sharing these helpful resources with Sandi. Especially because in this instance, the fireplace was custom made.
