Ok my wife wants a gas fp right now we have no fp at all. I spent 3k last yr on a hi eff NG furnace and I love it. She wants a gas FP and plans to use it alot
We have a brick chimney thru the roof ( ranch house ) that I wanted to remove and shingle over. She doesnt like the idea of a metal chimney going thru the roof ( on the front roof )
So heres my ?'s
1) Hwo efficient are the gas FP's ?
2) could I bump the fp into the attached garage and tap into the exsisting chimney ??
If I bumped into the attached garage I would be on the same wall as the chimney but about 2ft away from it, could i 90 the pipe and run it horizonatal for 2ft then up the chimney ??
Now if not is there any GOOD option for a vent free fp. She has asthma so I wonder if even the vented one may bother her,
