Review of Heta Inspire 40 stove

Not what I expected !

Christine Hughes 5 years ago

Had this fire installed as restricted space. Pleased with look of fire and great when burning wood but had hoped it was multi fuel and wanted to burn anthracite. I have tried with not much success. I feel it does not get enough air and ash pan is tiny.

Stove expert replied: Perhaps try an alternative smokeless fuel as anthracite may not suit this stove, do leave the bottom air controls open and have a clear ashpan so that air can pass through the grate and fuel. Different fuels do burn at different rates so if you try a few you may find a more suitable product.
