While Hunter Stoves may not be as large as some competitors, make no mistake about it, this is a quality UK-based stove manufacturer. If you check out the company’s website you will see an array of quality stoves which are durable, extremely efficient and while maintaining the “old world look” accommodate the latest in combustion technology. There is one common denominator when it comes to successful stove manufacturers, an ability to read market trends and satisfy the appetite of ever hungry consumers. Therefore, as the popularity of gas stoves continues to grow it will be no surprise to learn that Hunter has now released an array of exceptional stoves.
We live in a world where the environment continues to take centre stage and emissions are tracked extremely closely. While not all consumers have access to gas fuel, those that do are now considering gas stoves as well as their wood-burning/multifuel counterparts. It is also worth noting that the design and look of a stove is extremely important to consumers these days. So, what better way to hit the ground running than to replicate the award-winning designs of a company’s wood-burning/multifuel stoves?
Hunter Aspect 7 Gas Stove
Those who follow Hunter Stoves will be aware that the company has an extremely popular Hunter Aspect 7 wood-burning stove. The stove is efficient, the design eye-catching and it is extremely durable which is another very important factor today. So, it is no surprise to see the Hunter Aspect 7 Gas stove released to the market with a design based upon its wood-burning stove counterpart. The design is classical, stylish and very easy on the eye. It is safe to say that the Hunter Aspect 7 Gas may have the classic look but it is at home in both a classic and contemporary environment. A conversation starter or a subtle stove sitting in the corner warming your guests, it will certainly be popular.
While traditionally gas stoves have been built around the log effect gas fire look, the Hunter Aspect 7 Gas offers the opportunity to introduce a coal effect gas fire into the mix. The flickering flames seem to dance between the burning embers and it is only on close inspection that you will notice the coal/log effect is not “real”. This particular model comes in natural gas and LPG variations, which again opens up the market. Are you one of the many who have historically discounted gas stoves as in a lower league to their wood-burning/multifuel counterparts? If the new range of Hunter gas stoves is anything to go by, you may need to think again!
Hunter Avalon 4 Gas Stove
So, at first glance did you guess that the Hunter Avalon 4 Gas stove was a gas fuelled stove or did you mistake it for its wood-burning/multifuel stove counterpart? If you failed to spot it was a gas fuel stove then you are certainly not alone. This is the beauty of the Hunter range of gas stoves, the fact that they are based upon very successful wood-burning/multifuel stove counterparts. It does make sense after investing huge amount of money to ensure wood-burning/multifuel stove designs are popular. Simply use these designs to integrate a range of extremely high quality gas stoves?
It is also worth noting that the Hunter Avalon 4 Gas stove can be fuelled by natural gas or LPG which again opens up the potential market. While many people would suggest that the purchase of a stove today is as much about the look and design as it is about efficiency that is not always the case. Yes, we all want an eye-catching design but ultimately the machine has to be able to create the required heat. So, you will be pleased to learn that the Hunter Avalon 4 Gas does exactly what it says on the tin. A beautiful way in which to relax, sit back and enjoy the warming vibe given off by your gas stove.
Hunter Avalon 6 Gas Stove
How do companies such as Hunter make it seem so simple when releasing stoves of extremely high quality which are also so easy on the eye? As we touched on above, the Hunter range of gas stoves is based upon the designs of the company’s extremely popular wood-burning/multifuel variations. They incorporate the same durability together with the latest combustion technology and designs which look at home in a traditional and contemporary environment. The Hunter Avalon 6 Gas stove you see before you today is very different to gas stoves of 20 years ago or even 10 years ago, efficiencies have improved, designs have taken a step up and the quality of the replica coal/log effect bases often make them indistinguishable from the “real thing”.
Available in natural gas and LPG variations, the Hunter Avalon 6 Gas stove is mid-range when it comes to heat output. Many people are warming to the idea of gas stoves simply because they are very easy to use and literally light within a second. That said there is a reason why Hunter has incorporated the look and feel of their traditional wood-burning/multifuel stoves at the centre of their gas stove range. If you’re looking for a gas stove, but perhaps your knowledge is limited, please feel free to give us a call. We have extensive knowledge and experience in the world of gas stoves and can point out the pros and cons of different models and whether they are suitable for your requirements.
Hunter Consort 5 Gas Stove
The Hunter Consort 5 Gas stove is set to become one of Hunter Stoves more popular models because of the heat output and the myriad of uses. This is the type of stove which would be at home in a small to medium sized room, well capable of battling the winter chill and warming you up. We appreciate that not all homes have a gas supply but for those that do there is a real and relevant new option available. At the flick of a switch your gas stove is lit and you can sit back, relax and enjoy the warming atmosphere.
This particular stove offers a heat output of around 4.7 kW and is available in both LPG and natural gas variations. The technology associated with these machines has certainly come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. The clever use of already successful designs, in both the wood-burning and multifuel stove market, have certainly given the machine a useful head start. Consumers recognise the design, style and associate these with Hunter Stoves. What better way to introduce your range of gas stoves to the marketplace?
All of the gas stoves in the Hunter range are comfortable in both a traditional and contemporary environment. While this is the type of machine which attracts attention in a crowded room, you can place it as your centrepiece and conversation starter or as a subtle gas stove in the corner welcoming and warming your guests. Before they get close to your Hunter Consort 5 Gas ask them whether they think it is a wood burner, multifuel or gas stove. The majority would never guess it is a gas fuel stove!
Hunter Consort 7 Gas Stove
The larger Hunter Consort 7 Gas stove offers heat output approaching 7 kW and is certainly more focused on the larger room end of the market. Aficionados will recognise the similar look and feel compared to the Hunter Consort 7 wood-burning stove and they will be right. The design has been replicated and until you get close to a Hunter Consort 7 Gas you would never guess the log/coal base was just a replica. Yes, your mind may think you are sitting next to a wood-burning/multifuel stove but in reality this is a gas powered machine.
Historically many stove companies have attempted to differentiate their gas machines from other forms of fuel such as wood and solid fuels. This may have seemed like a sensible move at the time but in reality it was duplicating marketing expenses, design costs and not making full use of the beautiful designs already available. Therefore, in hindsight it is no surprise see the Hunter Consort 7 Gas stove as a modern day replica of its wood-burning/multifuel counterpart. This machine is available in both natural gas and LPG variations which further expands the potential marketplace. So, if you are one of the many who have historically discounted gas stoves then you may need to think again. The modern day gas stove is almost identical in look to its wood-burning/multifuel counterpart although obviously a different fuel – and you certainly get excellent value for money!
Choice is the key to the gas stove market
The stove market has changed so much over the last 20 years that it is in effect unrecognisable to the market we see today. We have wood-burning stoves, multifuel stoves and now an expanded range of natural gas/LPG stoves. Historically if you were looking for a traditional/contemporary stove design you were forced to consider wood-burning/multifuel stoves, there were no other options. The historic design of gas stoves was markedly different and something that the stove manufacturers did consciously. However, the market has now come full circle with modern day gas stoves based upon many of the more popular wood-burning/multifuel variations.
So, those looking towards the gas fuelled market now have the opportunity to pick and choose from some of the groundbreaking designs available today. As well as the good old traditional look!
In recent years companies such as Hunter Stoves have shown a breathtaking understanding of not only their customer base but the wider stove market. It may look very simple, taking the design of award-winning wood-burning/multifuel stoves and converting them into gas, but it is not as easy as that. There is a need to try to maintain the traditional look of a non-gas stove while obviously maximising the efficiency of this particular type of fuel. No mean feat!
So, if you are one of the many who have historically discounted gas stoves as substandard when compared to wood-burning/multifuel counterparts, it is certainly time to think again. These machines are highly efficient, extremely easy on the eye and as they say “the proof is in the pudding” with many people drawn towards both natural gas and LPG fuelled stoves. If you are considering the purchase of a gas stove please feel free to call us at any time. We have an in-depth knowledge of the market and can advise you about the pros and cons regarding your particular situation.
