regarding open versus close facings:

If you feel like your mouthpiece requires too much "bite" to properly center the sound, a more comfortable solution would be to bring the mouthpiece closer to the reed. In other words, play a closer facing.

Another solution is to play a softer reed.

So which solution is better? It is a matter of personal preference. To help you decide, typically a closer facing adds stability, whereas a softer reed adds flexibility.
