Is Quadfire 7100FP $2000 better than Xtrordinair FPX 36 Elite?

ahrenoDecember 12, 2008

IÂm deciding between a quadfire 7100fp and a Xtrordinair FPX 36 Elite.

I had a chimney fire and will be replacing my entire chimney and mason fire place. I think iÂm going to choose one of these fireboxes. It will save me a lot of cost on the chimney (since it will just be wood frame with a single brick exterior) and is more efficient than an insert and looks nice.

I have an estimate of $5688 installed for the Xtrordinair FPX 36 and an installed price of $7744 for the Quadfire.

Anyone have any opinions on either? I hear great things about both. The benefit to me of the quadfire is the ability to run ducting to other parts of the house (that is NOT included in the estimate however).

Would love some insight on this itÂs hard to get unbiased opinions from a "salesman"

Your quotes seem very high to me. I just had an Xtrordinair 44 elite installed for $5300. I also got a quote on the 7100 quadrafire for $5100. I went with the 44 elite Xtrodinair because it is a bit larger than the quadrafire 7100. I would go with the quadrafire 7100 over the 36 xtrordinair if you can the price down. $7744 is outrageous. I'm in Georgia.

What type of pipe? SL or insulated? Insulated adds oh...1500 or so. I like my Quadrafire. It was over 5000 with sl pipe.
