Wednesday, 27 May 2020

Whilst all models have the same nominal heat output rating of 5kW, they have different proportions plus as the size of the stove gets larger, so does the maximum heat output level. Hunter Stoves were keen to keep the nominal heat output for all the Herald Allure stoves at 5kW as this is the optimum heat for standard sized rooms and in most installations, an air vent is not needed.
The smallest model is the Allure 04. Ideal for smaller enclosures where space is at a premium, this stylish dedicated woodburner is constructed using heavy gauge steel for the body with a cast iron door guaranteeing an air-tight combustion. Simple, clean lines with attractive stepped detail around the large glass window, the Hunter Herald Allure 04 has easy to operate controls at the base of the body with a neat door handle integrated within the bottom of the door to complement the modern, minimalist design of this highly advanced model.

The test results have also been verified by HETAS and listed on the HETAS web site.

The largest model is the stunning Hunter Herald Allure 07. The wide format body allows for a landscape door with panoramic glass window providing a spectacular flame view. Most customers looking to purchase a stove want the biggest model to create the maximum impact. This can cause issues as a larger stoves usually means higher heat output and if you have a standard sized room, a stove that is too powerful will end up being uncomfortable to use.
