We haven't turned on the furnace yet as the fireplace works so well. I was also one that thought it was a waste of money and space in the beginning. Started trying to figure out how to replace it with something else more useful....till we turned it on. Plenty of heat. Couldn't care less about the flames and burning logs, just the efficiency of low power heat. Let the CG pay for your heat and not your own propane supply.
