“Experience installing a gas fireplace? Seeking recommendations, tips, dos/donts”

“We want install a small, ventless gas fireplace (32 – 36″) in our row house and wondering if anyone has experience to share or vendors to recommend. We have no existing fire place and want to place it on on our front wall between two front windows. We have read the new ventless fireplaces are much safer than they used to be and give better heat (plus no ugly vent in the front of our house). We went to Bromwells and Cyrus Air in VA today. Bromwell quoted as around $2200 just for the firebox — need to set up a home visit before they will quote on installation. Cyrus Air was very knowledgable and helpful but the quotes was really high +$8K, but that would include installation, permits, dry wall, mantel and all finishing. Is that reasonable? Anyone have experience buying their box online and then having a different company install it? Appreciate any and all advice!”
