It depends on your location. I can recommend someone for the New Jersey/Philadelphia area. I would suspect any qualified General contractor could accommodate your request. It's really a matter of building around the new appliance to make it match to the decor of the room it's in. In my area I see many of HVAC and General Contractors installing ventless gas fire places in existing fireplaces with little to no issues. Just chose the best qualified contractor not the lowest price and you will most likely be happy with the work performed.

You might want to look at these answers to a similar recent question, and I would strongly advise you to read the referenced article in my second response - unvented fireplaces are illegal in many areas, and are just plain dumb - why anyone would want to vent the combustion products, gases, and moisture from the "fireplace" into their home is beyond me. Most peoiple would rightly throw a total hissy fit if a plumber proposed just blocking off the exhaust vent from their water heater or furnace and venting it straight into the house, yet this is exactly what is happening with ventless fireplaces.

Do yourself a favor - avoid respiratory, dirt, and moisture problems by dropping the idea of a ventless fireplace.
