    dIY fireplace fan.

    Lots of them. Ugly as hell. Most use a computer type fan.

    Best is to see if your inert can take a fan.
    My new one will. My current does not.

    years ago i saw something at a guys house that seemed genius. it was 4-5 curved, half circle metal tubes. they went from 1-2 feet above the fire and curved down below the fire. i think the idea was that they would heat up and transfer the heat outwards. really warmed the place up.

    hang on, a quick google found these. seems to be a great idea???????

    Rut- look up the inserts that they use up north. Anything else is wasting money. Like these.

    I put a high efficiency gas insert in my living room fireplace (Pennsylvania home). Took the old wood burning fire box out and had gas piped. Re-sleeved the chimney as well.

    Pretty pleased with it. Essentially a furnace that looks good, is super easy to operate (thermostat remote), and flat out performs. My model is 45k BTU and will heat ~2k SF. It's not going to replace my HVAC systems but it's a great option when we don't need to heat the entire home because we're only in one area of the house. They're certainly not cheap but they are worth it.

    True. But it also means I don't have to source wood, split wood, stack wood, or clean a fireplace. I think a true wood burning fireplace is a nice component to the fall/winter season. I like the smell and popping of the wood but when my wife wants a fire all she has to do is push a button and I don't even have to leave my chair It's a fair trade-off for me.

    This. We have big ones at work and they are stupid expensive and hungry.

    Iíd never looked at smaller units they are a lot more affordable then Iíd thought.

    We are all electric but part of this remodel is bringing in LP.

    So now that we have overhead heat, stove or fireplace? Lol.

    I can hardly imagine a scenario where Central/South Central/South texas would require a big outlay and serious planning for heat.

    Fire up the wood stove, and if 65 makes you cold put on a sweater
