Very efficient. Hardly any smoke from chimney. Despite comments below, we really like the stove. Heats the whole house except when temp < 10 deg outside. Quadra Fire customer service is good.
Stove sides rattled when blower on (a fix has been made). Ash drawer is useless. Two bricks have broken. Handle grip on air control comes off. Practical log length is 15" or less. Typical fire with oak lasts about 4 hours.
Dealer's customer skills are poor. Example: Refunded us $45 for incorrect charge on warranty call but increased his fee for chimney cleaning by $39. Doesn't return calls.
I wish we had bought larger model.
