Review of Stovax Huntington 40 stove

satisfied stove shop owner

Tom Ballinger 8 years ago

I own a fireplace shop and decided to install the Stovax Huntingdon 40 (Matt Ivory) into my old stone cottage where the only source of heating is electric night storage heating. Luckily the fireplace is in the middle of the house with stairs leading off of the living room and the downstairs is all open plan. I have not had to turn on the heating yet and the stove has run throughout the winter season. I choose this stove mainly on output and appearance. I have nothing but good things to say about this stove, the quality is second to none and you certainly get what you pay for. The air wash is great, flame pattern and viewing superb. I have managed to keep this stove in for 14 hours using smokeless coal and 9 hours with logs. Obviously with the stove slumbering overnight the glass blackens but this is quickly cleaned when the air is re-opened in the morning.
