(likely cost at launch £6.99 month, £48 year although pricing models yet to be set)

We would like to give up to 100 people this app for free. To qualify you will be a stovefitter, chimney sweep, stove retailer or "within the trade".

9 July 2014: 36 FREE CODES LEFT

So what do we desire in return? 

FOR FREE ACCESS FOR ONE YEAR: Provide us with a few insights into your favourite stoves and brands. Nothing too strenuous:

1. List your 5 favourite freestanding stoves (from different brands) in the 4-6 KW range (any order).
2. List your five favourite freestanding stoves (from different brands) that are 7KW or larger (any order).
3. List your favourite five brands of stoves (any order).

Just email this information to with a few details about your business (see foot of this article) and we will be in touch by return email.

FREE ACCESS FOR THE LIFE OF THE APP: As well as the above we require three very short stove reviews for three of your favourite stoves chosen from those within our database at launch (you can find the list on this Google+ page). When we say short we mean three to seven sentences. Here is an example:

Mendip 8
"Cracking 8kw stove. I have the red enamel version and it looks great in our TV room. Good, solid construction and stainless steel fittings from Sheffield apparently. Dog loves it." Fred Johnson. Hetas Engineer no. 12564 Johnson's Heating Services. Aberdeen AB13 3AB.

A suitable review such as this would be added to the informational page within the app, with your name and business name as the author.

You must have an Apple Iphone, Ipad, Ipod or Android device to take advantage of this opportunity. You will be notified of the app's launch in August 2014 and how to obtain your free download.

If you are interested please email and we will despatch an email by return.

Identification information required in email:

First name:
Tel no:
Business name:
Web address (if have):
Retailer or Engineer?:
Hetas registered ID (if registered):
Apple or Android device?:

Any questions email

So what is StoveSPY and why might it be of use to a Hetas engineer?

StoveSPY "find your perfect stove", is a searchable database of over 300 solid fuel stoves from over 30 of the leading brands (Aarrow, Aga, Charnwood, Dovre, Jotul, Morso, Stovax being just a few examples).

No more will stove buyers have to spend hours searching the web for their ideal stove. For Hetas engineers or retail outlets just few moments with the app and you can provide a refined list of stoves for your customer to choose from.

Each stove within the StoveSPY app has over 40 informational fields:

Model, Image, Rating, Brand, Double_sided?, Freestanding_inset_wall_ceiling, SmokeControlKit, Log_store_or_pedestal_possible, Log_store_or_pedestal_built_in, Log_store_or_pedestal_detail, RRP, Suggested price, External_air_vent, Fitting_instructions, Website, Centre_of_flue_to_back_of_stove, Kilowatts_approx, Kilowatts_nominal, Kilowatts_max, Multifuel_or_wood, Defra_possible, Defra_approved_as_standard, Defra_approved_but_needs_kit, Minimum_chimney_liner_inches, Stove_body_material, Traditional_contemporary_tubeshape, Hearth_can_be_12_mm, Flue_collar_size, Width, Required_recess_width, Required_recess_height, Height, Depth, Side_air_gap_requirements, Top_air_gap_requirements, Safe_recess_height, Rear_air_gap_requirements, Rear_45_degree_adaptor?, Country_of_manufacture, Flue_options, Weight_kg, Enamel_colours, How_many_colours_available, Max_log_length_cm, Additional_information, Efficiency_percentage

You can search through the 300+ stoves using over 20 different search criteria e.g. "I have a budget of £800 and require a freestanding, traditional looking 5kw stove, wood only, that will fit a recess 72cm wide and 92cm high. The stove will be fitted in a smoke control area. Oh, cast iron please.

In this exact scenario the app will show you 2 stoves. Include steel and you will see 5 stoves. Switch to multifuel and it's 19 stoves in your list... and so on. Note that the app will automatically take into account the manufacturer's recommended clearances (air gaps) to non-combustibles.

Each stove and its details have been researched and added by a registered Hetas engineer (that's over 12,000 pieces of information for the first 300 stoves in the app). More stoves will be added each month.

Advertising and StoveSPY

StoveSPY does not sell stoves and there are no plans to add any advertising or ecommerce facility to the site. We show RRP prices and "guide prices" (an average of advertised Internet and store prices) for information only. Brands will have their web addresses listed. The idea is to keep the app completely independent.

Those in the trade who are kind enough to review stoves for us will be recognised with a simple display of "name of business and telephone number".

Will this business model change in the future. Only if the app fails to sell or if a competitor were to bring out a free version.
