Make sure you have adequate ventilation and a carbon monoxide detector that works.

I wouldn't have one in the house, but perhaps I'm overcautious. Please make sure its someone competent that will fit adequate ventilation with it. Don't be tempted to block this even if it causes draughts, and make sure its all properly checked at regular intervals, say once a year.

An open gas flame is fine if everything works, but it can kill you if something causes it not to burn properly.

It is compulsory to have a 100cm2 ventilator for the room (which means its physical size is greater than 100cm2.

Flueless gas fires do not have a temperature control, they are either on or off.

Between the two things above its not really worth having one, electric probably works out cheaper once you take out the heat lost through the ventilator and the lack of control.

If a ventilator is put in, it must be lined so that it doesn't expose the cavity in the wall - we had a cowboy not do this properly and it went from a naturally warm house to one that was difficult to heat.

100cm2 is a hole the size of a half a house brick. That could mean a very nasty draught indeed.

Why not get a balanced flue ones which won't need a ventilator, but it will have to go onto an outside wall. These are much safer.
