Heating with Soapstone

Long-lasting comfortable heat

Our stoves are built using soapstone. Soapstone is a natural material that absorbs the sharp heat of a fire, stores the energy, then radiates a gentle heat back into the living space. This means your home stays at a pleasant temperature longer and you stay warm and comfortable, we call it HeatLife™.


Cast iron can withstand high temperatures and the cycle of heating and cooling associated with burning wood.  A cast iron stove will provide decades of use. The soapstone advantage is clear when compared to other products.

Benefits of a long soapstone HeatLife™

Get more out of your wood pile

A long HeatLife™ means you’re using less wood, saving money and heating efficiently.

Easier heating

Once heated, soapstone stays warm for hours, making it the ideal material for overnight heating or for other long stretches of time when you can’t tend the fire. Having a warm stove in the morning makes rekindling the fire quick and easy.

Comfortable heat

The powerful radiant heat from soapstone warms the objects in your home, not just the air. The heat from soapstone is gentle, even, and comfortable. You can sit close to a soapstone stove without getting the uncomfortable blast of heat you would feel from a steel stove.

Soapstone Material Properties

Natural Stone

Soapstone is a natural metamorphic rock formed millions of years ago under intense heat and pressure. Because it has an unusually stable composition, soapstone can comfortably withstand fire and dramatic changes in temperature indefinitely.

Heat Retaining

Soapstone retains more heat than any other material. Compared to other stove building materials, soapstone has the capacity to store twice as much heat as steel.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Soapstone also has an attractive, natural appearance. Each stone has a unique grain, a one-of-a-kind decorative element that will age gracefully. When exposed to high temperatures, the rich colors of the stone will deepen over time.
