Review of Heta Inspire 40 stove

Excellent Stove - makes cold winter nights enjoyable

Paul Whiteman 4 years ago

We had our Heta Inspire 40 installed two years ago when we bought our house. We had it professionally fitted making use of a disused fireplace and chimney, the house was built in 1929 when fireplaces were in every room.

The stove quickly became a focal point of the living room, easy to use and producing as much heat as you wanted. We have used kiln dried ash logs, they look great and burn easily and smokeless fuel, which we find creates more heat and burns easily once the fire is hot.

This was our first stove so we a little nervous about what to buy given the large number of stoves on the market, however for ease of use and the fantastic visual appeal of the fire through the large window we have been thoroughly pleased with our Heta stove.
