The pacific energy neo 2.5 is one amazing heater.. there is a lot to tell you about this wood fire.
Firstly the performance. With a max efficiency of 89% / average at 82% – this heater will burn almost 3 trailer loads of wood less per year than most other heaters.
And burn. The neo 2.5 has an amazing ‘after burn’ with the stainless steel baffle system that not only make this heater super clean (at 1gm emissions), but burn a solidly overnight (up to 15hours on a single load of wood).
The EBT, the ash dump, the smooth action of the way the door closes – it’s quality all the way
But it’s the security that pacific energy have made a heater with true heart to heat your home all winter long is what you will love the most – and design approved for passive homes
Neo wood heater blog 2 : additional features
The design of all wood heaters is all base on that your heater is installed with 4mts of flue, and you are using dry wood with a moisture content of 18%, and your home is only 100mtrs above seal level.
The issue here is this is not realistic. If your home has more than 4trs of flue, your heater will burn hotter : if your wood has higher moisture level higher than 18%, the wood will burn slower.
The neo wood heaters have features to compensate these changes to ensure your heater will work, no matter your conditions
Firstly, the flue.
When you add additional flue to any wood heater, this increases the draft, which in tails increases the way your heater burns.
The more flue, the more draft, the faster you heater will burn, you will loose your overnight burn – but more importantly you will burn significantly more wood.
Pacific Energy Extended Burn Time (EBT) is a automatic draft breaker – it knows what your heater needs ( 150mm flue x 4,000mm @ 120+oC = (x+y) draft
As you have more draft , the EBT automatically opens up to break the draft which reduces the air volume back to what the heater is designed at.
The benefit is this heater is perfect for homes with higher ceilings / two story homes / windy locations / of if your home is over 1,000+mtrs in elevation : the EBT regulates your flue draft all by negative pressure, no additional flue dampers or leavers –
