We have always had a bad attitude towards gas fireplaces. They seemed silly, like fake grass. Well, we recently saw a few pics from Valor and changed our mind. Boy, are they pretty.
Valor says that its fireplaces or "Gas Fireplace Heaters" are superior to regular methods of heating in that they put warmth directly into the space you wish to heat with virtually no cycling losses. Apparently, this is a problem with furnaces, which force heat through ducts. All fireplaces come with either "log" or "coal" set-ups and of all the styles, we liked the Bolero the best (pic above). Now have to say we are sorry for being such snobs. Sorry. AH
