pacific energy summit wood heater – heats 300+m2

The Summit is largest heater by Pacific Energy, and with a massive 300m2 heating capacity, this heater is for the largest of homes.

The firebox is massive, it can take up to 450mm long wood, and when fully loaded, you can shut down to get a long 12 to 15 hour burn time on a single load of wood.

The flames in this heater are amazing, all the technology built in not only gives you amazing flames, but ensures your Summit will burn using the least amount of wood to heat the maximum amount of area : all by burning clean – and design approved for passive homes

The pacific energy super wood heater is one amazing heater.

Its steel firebox means the heater has a very fast heat up, and an amazing ability to continue to heat hours after the fire has gone out.

Its traditional looks hide the most technically advanced heater underneath.

Boasting 15hour burn time, low emissions , thermal mass heating, full fire brick lined, cook top with trivet – the alerlea is just as much as a piece of furniture as it is the main focus in your room

The performance of the pacific energy super wood heater is the way the baffle plate is used to heat the air used for the secondary burn.

All wood heaters today need to have a secondary burn, this is what we call re-igniting the smoke your fire makes to reduce emissions and increase efficiency.

Most wood heaters use a 25mm round tube inside the firebox to bring in additional air, as the air goes through this tube, its heated by the fire, and through small holes, the hot air is released into the smoke : the temperature of this air ( approx 250+oC ) re-ignites the smoke to create an secondary burn

Not in the Pacific Energy wood heaters, they don’t use a small tube, they use the entire baffle. The increased surface area is 900% more than these traditional round tubes which increases the temperature of this secondary air to over 800+oC.

The higher temperature has a dramatic, and immediate effect on the smoke, it ignites it with an intensity.

With this additional secondary air temperature at this increased level, visually you can see the smoke ignite, and its impressive to watch

The floating fire that seems to be coming out of the baffle is just that, more fire inside your heater : its not burning any more wood,  its now burning the smoke.

This intern gives you more heat and increases the efficiency, giving you more heat from the wood you are using intern makes you burn less wood

Scientifically, you get 36,000but’s from very 10kG of wood you burn ( at 20% moisture ); but that’s calculated on a secondary burn ( thats re-burning the smoke the fire produces ) at 250+oC

Increase the secondary burn to 800+oC and you increase the energy the total fuel load ( actual kG of mass + released carbon ) to over 50,000btu.

This means you get more heat from the wood you burn, but the most exciting thing about this fact is you don’t loose your burn time

Most wood heaters increase the air flow to the heaters to get this additional temperature required to reduce emissions : The Pacific Energy heaters with the baffle super hot, the added benefit is the baffle is doing the work , so you can still turn the heater down and get long burn times, up to 15+ hours on a full load of wood

Additional to this, your are reducing the emissions ( smoke the heater produces to the atmosphere ), making all Pacific Energy wood heaters cleaner burning and better for the environment.


summit heater - heats 300+m2

The summit is tested with an average of 64% efficiency, or 3 star rating. This is 17% more efficient than other heaters in this range - meaning you will burn 2mtrs of wood less per year. As for emissions, the summit is tested at 1.1grms, or 4.5 Star rating (that's an impressive 55% cleaner burning than most wood heaters in this class)

designed to perform

the summit has one of the most technically designed fireboxes to ensure your heater will burn all night long, and heat your home all night long

pacific energy's unique after-burn

unique to pacific energy is the stainless steel baffle that super charges heats the air before it enters the triple burn. this process not only reduces emissions, but give you one impressive flame

perfect for massive homes

EBT is a feature that is perfect for larger homes with high roof lines.
it ensures your heater will perform perfectly no matter how much flue your heater has

so easy to use

a big heater needs a big control, and the summit has one simple control that has over 225mm in adjustment - so you have full control

pacific energy summit review

Value for money, this is amazing value. The firebox is deep - takes huge long pieces of wood that offer not only an amazing flame pattern, but a exceptional long burn time. The cook top is large, and hot (hard to simmer on - everything just boils) and the door has a very smooth and is easy to open and close. Our heater score is 9/10
