I just bought a condo and I hate the gas fireplace! I can barely see the flame or the wood against the black background. The flame is tiny, only 3 to 4" and doesn't extend above the wood.
Another concern is when the glass is over the opening, it starts fogging up right away. Does this mean that it is not properly vented? I specifically looked for a home with a fireplace and have owned several gas units before but nothing as pitiful as this! Any suggestions?
