I have a wood burning fire place that came with the house I purchased in the Summer. I am not using it and don't intend to. Wondering what are my options to get rid of it? And the cost involved with it. It is in the basement.

A wood burning fireplaces comes in handy when the power is out for a week and its minus 32. They are costly to build. And are relaxing to watch. But you can just knock the face off and cover it over.

Hello there,

Yes in ur case I would suggest to go with gas fireplace - there is many designs models to choose from. Gas fireplaces would be more safe and also they make effecient as well as more clean look.
