About 18 years ago i saw a fireplace/boiler at the Chicago heating and airconditioning show. The concept of the fireplace/boiler was that the fireplace was on one side of the wall and the boiler on the other.

The fireplace probably didn't burn wood but at the very least there was a wood facade with a gas burner underneath, witch did provide heat to the boiler. The design of the "heart" or heater exchanger was in the shape of the firebox. Also it was Stainless steal. From what the person who ran the both told me that a percentage of Canada used it.

The idea of this intrigues me. Does anyone know anything about this? Is there a company that specializes in this? Any information is good. Please Email and post.
