Do as the Romans do and follow the lead on the fireplace market. I never see the use of oil burning furnaces in the midwest either...so why use them?

A Pro on the ventless is it costs much less to buy and install... A Con - they look like that won't last very long and look like they haven't been designed well... well most all of them anyway.

I like the looks of some stone and masonry fireplaces too, but add up the costs to construct the foundation, structured floor, brick walls, masonry flu and cap and finish the interior with the brick veneer with wood mantle...the almighty dollar dictates the market to change this one.
