Review of Stovax Huntington 35 stove

Stovax Huntington 35 multi fuel

Jack Hickman 3 years ago

We bought an 11 year old second hand Huntington 35 in autumn last year to heat our unfinished (only just watertight) barn conversion with 2 foot thick walls.It was one of the best buys we made. Having previously used cheaper, inferior design woodburners we fully expected to be huddled around the burner to keep warm....not the case. This beautiful (and everyone comments on it''s beauty) woodburner is so efficient I wish I had discovered one earlier! We only use wood, as we have an abundance of it ,although the option of using coal is still there. We just leave an inch bed of ash in the bottom at all times. I must admit it took a bit of time to understand how to optimise its efficiency, realising that it only likes seasoned, dry wood for a clean burn. There is no need to clean the glass as the airwash system is amazing! Tip for anyone buying second hand..make sure you hoover out the holes at the back of the burner before lighting, they are fundamental to the airwash system. Ours had become clogged on the journey home with the burner lying on its back in the vehicle. This woodburner never goes out unless we make an effort to let it go out to remove ash and it comfortably heats the whole 2 bedroom house. We are, as we speak, in T-shirts in an old cowshed and it is -5 and white with frost outside...love it
