Bis vs. Quadrafire
Does anybody have any first-hand experience with the Bis Tradition Fireplace? I had originally been set to install a Quadrafire 7100fp, but the dealer (who also carries Quadrafire) is trying to steer me towards the Bis. I read the mega-thread on the 7100, so I feel like I'm familiar with its shortcomings.
The dealer has the Bis installed in his house and said he ripped out the Quadrafire to put the Bis in. He said he's had many service calls on the Quadrafire, but none with the Bis.
One thing that worries me, is the advertised burn times for the two fireplaces. The Quadrafire has a 16 hour burn time compared to 8 for the Bis. Obviously I don't think the Quadrafire would burn for 16 hours, but if the Bis burns for less than 8, then it would be very inconvenient.
I would basically just like somebody who's not "selling" the product to me to give an honest opinion on the pros and cons of each.
Thank you for any help
