  • Great little stove

    Debbie Ulliott 3 years ago

    Just had a Huntington 25 installed and am pleased with our choice. It throws out a good heat and looks fantastic.the only slight fault so far is that the bottom of the glass gets dirty very
    quickly. We have only used the stove for a few days so it may be something we are doing incorrect. Anybody else had this problem and if so know how to rectify it? Apart from that it really is a great stove.

    Stove expert replied: Always use dry seasoned wood with a moisture content of less than 20%, keep the fuel back in the firebox and leave the air control open until a well established fire has been achieved. Only shut the air control a small amount at a time until a gentle slumbering flame picture is evident and do give the stove short periods of fast burn to maintain a free flue.

    After 18 months of looking at brochures and reading stove reviews I finally decided to purchase the Stovax Huntingdon 25. We live in a 3 bedroomed semi-detached house and the stove was installed with a liner in the living room. We burn wood, briquettes and smokeless coal and it handles it all with ease. For a 5 kw stove it really does belt some heat out no matter what it is burning. It lights easy, airwash perfect, air controls are faultless and burning smokeless coal will stay in overnight no problem. The only little fault is the door handle has lost a bit of colour but this stove is really faultless.

  • Very happy with this stove

    Ed Arn 5 years ago

    Did a lot of looking up in terms of what stove to get. Concur with other reviews that it lights easily and belts out heat. We went for plane window. Very happy with our choice.

  • Cracker!

    Word of warning though, not about the burner but reference the chimney, we had to get our flue steel lined even though our bungalow is less than 20 yrs old, this was not mentioned to us by the
    local supplier who proved less than helpful.

  • Stovax Huntington 25

    Paul Markham 8 years ago

    We have recently installed this stove into our 3 bedroomed 1930's Semi-Detached house and have had the chimney lined at the same time as part of the install. We opted for the clear glass door and it looks fantastic with a great view of the flames when its burning well. We have found that the airwash doesn't work as well as we had hoped and over a short period of time the glass tends to soot up. However some white vinegar and elbow grease gets it off relatively easy. Its pretty easy to light, we use lightly screwed up news paper, dry old pallet for kindling and then dry hard wood (less than 20% moisture) once the fire has taken. It takes about an hour to start to warm the room and within a few hours we open the door to let the heat circulate around the house. The fire box isn't over large, but you shouldn't expect anything big on a small stove - we tend to empty it every 3 days or so. We haven't tried keeping it alight over night so hence the lower score to get through the review. We also have only burnt wood on it so far but it is a multi-fuel stove so we have the option to burn coal in the future. Its too early to say if its saving me money but we have had the central heating on less so hopefully the gas bills will reduce over time. In Summary, a great little stove, can't fault it.

    Stove expert replied: Leave the ash to build up on top og the grate as this provides the best conditions for burning wood but I would not leave ash to build up in the ashpan, ideally this should be emptied daily and possibly twice a day when using smokeless fuels.

    1st we are in a average 4 bed house I have come from work at 1715 hrs ,our central heating comes on at 1615 hrs at about 1830 hrs ( I am talking about very cold nights like we had winter 2011)I would light the stove, shut the three bedroom doors and dining room door, leaving ours open as with the bathroom and toilet, then turn the central heating off, it is not long before we have to open the door to the room the stove is in, as it gets too hot in the room, this then keeps warm whats open upstairs, and our kitchen and hall downstairs. Our chimney is lined so the air draw is very strong but the air controls are very efficient so no problem. Lighting, some tightly rolled newspaper, small kindling on top, larger wood on top of the kindling, in five minutes we have a roaring fire for our big logs, a fantastic small stove that could not be faulted, Have not tried any other fuel other than wood, have not tried burning overnight. but have given it a rating of 3 to get through the review

    Stove expert replied: Seems very efficient producing good heat, performing well.
