HETA has a wide selection of finishes from steel, casted tiles, ceramic, soapstone, limestone, granite and sandstone cladding options are available, depending on the model you choose. The choice of material is a matter of style and design, though each material has particular characteristics. A stove made entirely from steel or cast iron warms up faster than ceramics or stone and it also cools faster when the fire has gone out. Ceramics and especially soapstone take a little longer to warm up, but stay warm long after the fire has gone out. The slightly larger soapstone stoves stay warm for many hours and can easily keep a room or house nice and warm through the night, so you will not wake up cold in the morning.
