We care about the environment
Environment and future
We feel strongly about the environment and our common future. For years, HETA has been working intensely on environmentally friendly manufacturing of clean-burning stoves for the benefit of the environment.
All HETA stoves have impressively high burning value very close to 100 per cent, so you get more out of your firewood, and polluting gases are burned before leaving the chimney.
HETAs stoves are some of the most clean-burning stoves in Europe. They are tested in accordance with applicable regulations in Norway, Denmark and Germany as well as the new European standard. HETA is also environmentally certified according to the internationally accepted standard ÖKO ZERT DIN EN ISO 14001.
HETAs completely unique fire chamber and air channels mean that CO2 and harmful particles are reduced to an absolute minimum.
Wood energy is CO2-neutral
Wood is the world’s most climate- and environmentally friendly raw material. Among other things because heating with wood is CO2-neutral – unlike fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas. As such, heating with wood does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
Wood does not generate more CO2 when burned than when it decomposes as part of its natural cycle in the forests. When utilising wood energy, fossil fuels become unnecessary.
The unique sizing of the fire chamber and air channels in HETA stoves reduces CO2 and harmful particles to an absolute minimum.
HETAs modern combustion technique, Clean Burn, is extremely effective and removes soot particles on the glass door through the chimney. When you fire the stove, a warm and pleasant radiant heat will soon appear through the large glass windows, and soon after the convection system begins to spread the heat and cosiness to the room and adjacent areas.
In addition, many of our products come with heat-retaining stone – soapstone, sandstone, granite or ceramics – retaining and slowly releasing the heat for many hours.
HETAs Clean Burn combustion technology ensures that combustion air is free-flowing and feeds combustion without any resistance. The preheated tertiary air supply (blue arrows) burns the remaining gases before the smoke enters the chimney, making it an important factor for environmentally friendly combustion. The hot convection air (orange arrows) is the air that is distributed to the surrounding area, which – together with the radiant heat from the glass window – constitutes the direct heat source.
The heat is better exploited and you can enjoy the view of the flames through the large glass window in the door – completely without soot.
