Gas fireplace vs. wood burning

14 years ago

We moved into our house 9 yrs ago and the first thing I loved was having a fireplace. Not sure if it was because of the way it looked--so inviting and warm to a room or the coziness of the warm fire on a cold night. I must say that all there is something to be said about all the time and effort it is to get the fire started, getting logs, fire starter, keeping the fire going, etc., it seems to take out of all the warm feelings as I stated above. Also the smell permeates into the furniture lasting all year round. So with all this in mind I was wondering if anyone would suggest a gas fireplace and if so what should I look for before converting.
