    Finally got my stove the first week of October after a four month wait but they did not have the programmable thermostat I ordered in August for the install. Well it's Mid-November and still no thermostat. Finally broke down and purchased a nice Lux touch screen model off eBay for about half what the dealer was charging for the re-branded Quad programmable. Going to call the dealer Monday and get a refund on the T-Stat, the Lux works like a charm. Guess it's not just stoves that Quadra-Fire is slow on delivering this year. Last time I checked with the dealer on the order status they said a bunch of people were waiting for thermostats.

    Hey peirhead, keeping my fingers crossed for you. I purchased the Lux TX9000TS which is their top of the line model. Got an open box off of eBay for about half retail. It works great with the Castile. I think any of the Lux 24/Millivolt models would work fine but the jury is still kind of out in my mind on the programmable in general. It has cut down my pellet usage quite a bit but I am noticing the cold floors and room corners in the morning and when we first get home. I am also wondering if the Quad branded model sold by the dealer has any different logic with regard to swing. This one swings +- the set value where I have heard the Quad Mt Vernon t-stat swings up to the set value and shuts down. Still playing with the settings so maybe I will get it dialed in over the next week or so. I am also wondering if the setback is causing my bedroom zone to burn more oil during the day and whether it might just be better to burn pellets full time. I'll provide further feedback over the next week or so.

    Finally got the call from my dealer that my CB 1200i has arrived. Ordered on 6/24 and after a five month wait I'll finally have something to burn the pellets in my garage!

    Just got my Quad Castille Insert installed yesterday! Ordered end of July and finally installed! Now I need to find pellets because I'm lazy and haven't secured more than a few bags ahead of time... whoops!

    Congratulations, I wish I could have fit the MT Vernon in my hearth but I had to settle for a Castile. Good luck with the installation!

    Will do! One of the first things I did when the installers left was to take pics of it! LOL

    Took a bit of time to get used to efficiently running it, but so far so good! Wife is definitely happy with the heat that it is pumping out!

    My first post here. I just fired up my Quad Sante Fe. It was a self install into a corner. I have had no problems at all so far. I am very pleased by the quality of this stove. It seems to be quiet enough. Now I have to decide what pellets I will burn. I picked up a bag at Home Depot to fire her up and they seem to be fine.
    Thanks for listening. I sure I will be posting questions in the near future.
    :)

    Ordered my Quadrafire Mt. Vernon Insert (black) on 6/23 and it was installed on 10/15, the build tag says it was manufactured on 9/08. So far I've used almost a ton of pellets and the house is at least 8 to 10 degrees warmer than it was with oil. Heating a two story colonial with 2200 sq feet. The oil thermostat on both floors is shutoff!!! Cost was a little over 4K for complete installation. I've had to replace the thermostat already due to a glitch where the time on the hour settings reset itself to 0:00 and when I tried to change it back the time field went to 3 positions on the hour field.
