HETA’s stoves are made of steel and cast iron. In addition to these, you have the option to line your stove with steel tiles, ceramics, soapstone, limestone, granite and sandstone in several variants. Your choice is a matter of style and design, but it also depends on some factual differences. A stove made solely of steel or cast iron heats up faster than a stove with tiles or soapstone. On the other hand, it also cools down more quickly, once the fire has gone out.
Tiles and especially soapstone take a little longer to heat up, but in return, they keep warm long after the fire has gone out. The slightly larger soapstone stoves can keep you warm for many hours and can easily keep the living room or the rest of the house nice and warm all night, so you will not wake up cold in the morning.
