I am really sorry that I have to bring the same issue here, but I need a help quickly. I read all the debates for VF gas log and Vented log. And I called some local shops, and visited to get more information. But I cannot make a decision. I have a new house that was built in 2005. The main living area size is around 1800 sq with 15 ft ceiling and it is open wide. I have a fire place in the middle of living room that has a vent. The main reason I am looking for gas log is that I need a secondary heat source. During winter season, my main floor is very cold even if I set temp high. I use real woods for fireplace last year, but it is not effcient. Please give me advice plz.
Second question is do I need to install a dual fuel heat pump for better heating solution for my house? I paid over $470/month gas bill (set thermostats at 70 F, in Buford, GA). Please give me some advice.
