Introduction and questions  
Hello everyone. I just found this community. It doesn't look very active, but I have some questions and hopefully some of you are still around!

My husband and I are in the process of buying our first house. The house we are buying has a vent free gas fireplace. It is freestanding- not built into the wall. The house is small and the fireplace is in a really bad location. We are also having a baby and are concerned about the safety of having the stove seeing as how it gets hot (I'm concerned about the baby's safety and my own as I am a complete klutz!). Because of this, we want to have it removed. This is where my question comes in. I don't want to do it ourselves because it involves a gas hook-up that I don't want to mess with. We have no idea who to call to help us have it removed. I did a google search and didn't find any information about removing a gas fireplace and the manufacturers website doesn't address this issue either. The owners gave us the manual, and it has instructions for installing the fireplace (it says to have a professional install it) but nothing about having it removed. Does anyone here have one or have any idea who we could call to have it removed? Also, we'd love to sell it. It's very pretty and in great shape. We just don't think it fits this house. Any idea on where we could sell it? We were thinking craigslist, maybe?

Here, the gas company is separate from the utility company, which is just municipal (owned by the city). I'm not sure if thats the case everywhere, but I thought I would add that. ;)

Congrats on your new house and little one on the way. :)

I believe it's the same here. Looks like I'll be giving Amerigas a call.

Thanks! We're so excited, but it's starting to get stressful having so much going on at one time!
