The pacific energy alderlea t5 wood heater is one amazing heater.

Its steel firebox means the heater has a very fast heat up, where the cast iron outer casing offers thermal mass, so he heater has 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 Alderlea T5 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.

pacific energy alderlea t5 review

It's hard to compare the T5 to anything else on the market, because there is nothing like it. The quality of the finish is stunning, especially with the antique white enamel. The flame pattern is hypnotic, with the way the heater pre-heats the air before it enters the fire. The burn time is more than "just overnight"; it burns over 12 hours on a full load of wood.
