Review of Hunter Herald 80b boiler stove

3rd Hunter stove

Julia Furr 3 years ago

This is our 3rd stove in as many years. We have had 3 x leaking boilers. Whilst Hunters are always happy to replace leaking stove/boiler, it has been almost impossible to get a company to fit . Our latest conquest has been the glass falling out of the door in to the fire. This is because the clips are not long enough to hold the glass in place. With regards to smoke filled rooms when opening doors to refuel, we feel that this is a huge disadvantage when having any kind of stove. Overall, whilst boiler is very efficient at heating water/radiators, the design of the stove we have found to be poor.Certainly will be looking at another make next time.
