Good Question: Recommendation for Fireplace Gas Insert?

Good Question: Recommendation for Fireplace Gas Insert?

I have two great fireplaces in my 1880s house in Cambridge that I'd like to get working again, preferably with gas inserts. The semi-oval shape of the opening and small size (about 25" wide on bottom, 31" tall in the middle) seem pretty common in the area. We're planning on using a licensed pro for the install, but I'd like to go into the shopping / bid process armed with the knowledge necessary to get the best product and deal for us...

In my online research, I've found loads of gas inserts, but most seem designed for larger, squarer fireplaces in newer construction. Does anyone in the AT Boston community any leads on gas inserts for small, rounder fireplaces? If anyone has an insert, could you tell me the manufacturer? Can anyone recommend a dealer and/or installer? Please excuse the poor quality of the 'day of purchase' photos. Thanks!
