I have a gas fireplace that is essentially useless for warming up the
great room of my house. With the coming winter, the wife wants
something to replace it and I was hoping there may be some
recommendations for fireplace inserts or something like that. We were
thinking about pellet stoves but are not set on anything in particular.
Any other recommendations?

I am not saying you need a new chimney, but due to safety issues, I would
make sure. Gas fireplaces can be vent-less or use flues designed for gas
use only. What may be adequate for gas, may not be adequate for wood
burning with it's combustion byproducts (creosote).
Heat N Glo have some that are rated as furnaces so they should be
plenty hot. Look for ceramic glass instead of tempered glass for high
heat output and also a circulating fan. I'm sure there are other
makes with similar features. Visit a fireplace shop and not just
Lowes or HD.
