I'm starting to do some shopping around for an insert for my fireplace. Currently, I have just a set of doors on an open fireplace and burn wood a couple times a year more for the ambiance then the heating. I know an open fireplace like that really isn't efficient even with the doors on because they just suck all the warm out of the house. Preferably I'd put something in that burns rice coal...but I have and EFM520 doing my whole house heating and I don't know if I can get a coal insert that I can keep that "low" that I don't sweat myself out of the house...and it seems like maybe it's overkill? Although I don't mind overkill
. So, I guess the next step for the convenience factor would be an LP insert. Only problem is I have no idea where to begin with brand, type etc.
Anybody have any recommendations on an LP insert for a fireplace or anybody out there going to try and convince me to go coal? Thanks!
