Thanks to its high efficiency and the heat retention properties of soapstone, the Heritage will provide you with hours of sustained heat when fully loaded. Storing more heat for its weight than any other naturally occurring material, thick soapstone panels absorb the high heat of the fire to emanate natural, even warmth long after the fire dissipates. The side door makes it even simpler to load this efficient stove. In addition, the Heritage warms your home with minimal fire tending required.
