Hunter Herald 6 stove

The Hunter Herald 6 is available in quite a few different varieties.

You can buy a wood or multi fuel Hunter Herald 6 - and both models are available with 1 or 2 doors and with either a flat top, a low canopy, or a high canopy.

All the Hunter Herald stoves can have crosses on the 2 doors and you can have plain doors which gives the stove a more modern look.

    I have had the Hunter 6 double sided stove installed for about 2 weeks now, its a great looking stove, installation was quick and easy. I got good seasoned wood but can't get the heat out of... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and is not able to be shut down to a slumber mode, using lots of fuel for little heat then a damper should help to control the flue draw which may be excessive. In these cases the heated air is sucked out of the stove up the flue before it has time to radiate into the room, this may happen on windy occasions or be something that is always present. Further investigation is recommended.

  • Hunter Herald 6 Double Sided

    Alfie Kingston one year ago

    We recently had a Hunter Herald 6 wood burner installed by a Hetas registered engineer. It's double sided with top and bottom vents, a damper was also installed. It's not getting anywhere near... []

    Stove expert replied: The canopy may not be allowing the generated heat to radiate freely into the surrounding space but may be trapping it. Stove top fans do work well when a stove is up to working temperatures and may help. Is the stove fully controllable? If it is then possible look at the fuel that you are using, if it does not shut down to a slumber mode then the flue draw may be a problem and should be investigated further. Is the stove the correct size for the 2 areas you are trying to heat?

  • Hunter Herald 6 double sided single depth.

    Michael Picton 2 years ago

    For the last few years I had a clearview vision 500, which was excellent. The clearview was located in a dining room , it was installed with a double skinned flue which was boxed in . However... []

    Stove expert replied: Was the flue draw tested when installed as clear guidance is given to this in the manual supplied. I suspect that the draw was above the recommended level and a damper enables the reduction of the draw to what is suggested. The turbo bar will be required to insure the stove can burn effectively and efficiently and perhaps you are trying to put too many logs into the firebox at any one time. Is the fuel dry and seasoned? The glass will only stay clean if the air settings are correct and the fuel does not have a moisture content of less than 20%. Putting too many logs into the fire may also be aggravating this.

    We have had this Stove for about 3 months, all I can say is that I am very disappointed with it. After 8-10 hours of burning at full rate I can comfortably open the door by hand, without discomfort... []

    Stove expert replied: this possibly sounds like an undersized stove, perhaps also on a chimney which draws very strongly? Can you hear the air being sucked through the vents very clearly when you are near the stove?
