Review of Heta Inspire 45 stove

Disappointing

Anne Halteh 5 years ago

Our HETA Inspire 34 was installed in early December 2016 by the beginning of January we had to have the chimney swept! The installer blamed it on the wood we used (bought from a recommended source) and for some reason he removed a baffle plate saying it would improve performance it hasn't! Its hard to light, smoky, the glass is dirty - a very expensive disappointment!!

Stove expert replied: It sounds as if the flue draw is poor and possibly there is not enough free air in the room for combustion to occur correctly so this should be checked out thoroughly. There are things that can be done such as an air brick, elongating the flue, lining the flue etc.
