  • Great Stove

    After spending a few miserable winters with another stove that was smaller and of inferior build I have been truly delighted with this stove. Being large the stove easily warms the living space... []

    Stove expert replied: Do not leave the stove shut down for prolonged periods they need to have short periods of fast burn to maintain a clear flue system. When shut down for prolonged periods deposit can form on the glass and can lead to permanent damage as the flue gases are not being removed effectively.

  • 2 Hunter Herald 14's One good. One bad. Advice please

    Gareth McComb one year ago

    I had two Hunter Herald 14's in my house and because I never used one of them I moved it to my holiday home. The original works fine and I have had no problems with it. I have only started using the second one now that I have had it moved and installed by a professional installer. The problem with this stove is that you dampen it's burning. The two stoves seem to have different types of control at the top of the doors. On the "good" one you can slide a pan across and this reduces the draught. On the other there seems to be a damper type unit but this does not actually have a panel that actually slides across the openings at the top of the doors. Is there something missing or installed wrongly? Do I have two different eras of model? Your help would be appreciated Many thanks... []

    Sue Scorfield 2 years ago

    we have just had the woodburner fitted everything is great apart from the radiators don't get hot just warm. any ideas please

    Stove expert replied: Sounds like an installation issue as it may not have been balanced so I would suggest you go back to the installer. Check the fuel you are using is dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%.

    Stove expert replied: Have you got the thermostat fitted? Air Controls Secondary Air Control (Open Right) Primary Air The thermostat at the rear of the stove controls the primary air. The door sliders should be kept closed or the thermostat will not be able to control the fire. Secondary Air Secondary air is controlled via the slider above the doors; it is this “Airwash” that keeps a clean and uninterrupted view of the fire.

    Stove expert replied: It is not good practise to burn a woodburner 24/7, wood will not burn effectively or efficiently if the air controls are shut down and will produce tar residues that can lead to chimney problems, you are better to use smokeless fuel for the overnight hours. Do give the stove short periods of fast burn throughout the day to maintain a clear flue way.
