Nope, not for me. I'm planning to update my, never used wood burning fireplace with an electric insert for several reasons; 1, no firewood storage since I'm in a townhouse ( so why put in fireplaces, you ask, good question), 2, I don't want my heat going up the chimney, 3, I don't like shoveling out the ash, 4, a gas insert is waaaay to expensive and finally, because the fireplace and surround desperately need a new look. These looks, however, leave me cold.

My husband and I are wanting to install a firebox in our living room but are curious to know if this is the best idea for us. I like how you mentioned that when it comes to going this route they can either be long or short depending on the room. This is something we will have to determine so we can decide which one would be the best for the space we are wanting it for. http://www.nordicstoveandfireplace.com/gas-inserts
