Quadra-Fire® unveils the QFP38 gas fireplace this month. This is the second model of Quadra-Fire’s high performance gas fireplace line, combining the look of a large viewing area with a beautiful fire, realistic burning wood and high efficiency heating ability. Two years ago, Quadra-Fire introduced the QFP44 as the “biggest, baddest, most powerful, highest performing gas fireplace available in the marketplace,” winning the hearth industry Vesta Award for Best Gas Fireplace in 2006.
The QFP44 gets its name from a 44-inch front door width and 33-inch height, providing a clear view of the huge fire. The QFP38 is just slightly smaller, but still has the impressive presence if its larger version, producing heat at up to 80 percent efficiency.
Consumers Demand High Performance
With inflating and unstable energy prices, along with increased attention on using energy wisely, an increasing number of consumers are seeking alternative ways to heat their home. “Consumers recognize the need to save energy, but don’t want to skimp on performance, which is one reason why you can now buy a hybrid SUV,” points out Steve Tate, Quadra-Fire brand manager. “It’s not just about high efficiency. Consumers still demand full featured products to add value and benefit to their homes.”
The QFP series allows homeowners to enjoy a beautiful authentic fireplace while they turn down their primary home thermostat and zone heat the space where they spend most of their time, saving energy and money on monthly heating bills. The QFP38 is scheduled to be released this fall.
The QFP44 and QFP38 gas fireplaces are available at Quadra-Fire dealers and distributors. For more information, visit www.quadrafire.com or call 800-926-4356.
