Soapstone stoves give maximum heat for longer
The soapstone’s long cooling time means that the heat is evenly distributed for a longer period of time. Its ability to retain heat and withstand flames directly makes soapstone a perfect natural material for a stove; it will stay hot for hours without the need for re-filling. That said, the heat from a soapstone stove is even and comfortable allowing you to sit close to it, while the surface of the stone doesn’t get too hot – an added safety advantage for those with young children or pets.
Our larger soapstone stoves allow you to bulk fill for hours of maintenance-free heating. There’s no need to get up in the middle of the night to load the fire, and you can fill your stove in the morning with peace of mind that it will still be hot when you arrive home later.
Fireplace accessories for soapstone woodburning stoves
Soapstone stoves can be made even more practical with our range of fireplace accessories. A baking oven, for example, is nice to use and can be very useful in the event of a power cut. A fan distributes the hot air and allows it to spread rapidly from room to room, while larger stoves can be fitted with an olivine heat tank for even greater heat retention and distribution in larger rooms. These are just a few of the options available for our collection of woodburning stoves!
