The beauty behind the success of Portway’s stoves was in their efficiency and they burned so slowly that they extracted the maximum amount of heat from the fuel. They were named ‘Tortoise’ stoves and proudly produced with the motto ‘Slow but Sure’ displayed on the front. These were the first heating appliances to offer fuel efficiency as a major selling point making their role in the development of our industry of great significance today.
Robert Higgs, the chief executive of the Heating and Ventilating Contractors Association argues that Portway was the “founding father of energy efficiency”.
