pacific energy neo 2.5 inbuilt wood heater – heats 300+m2

The Neo 2.5 inbuilt wood heater is more than one of the most efficient wood heaters ever made, with amazing 12 to 15 hour burn time on a full load of wood this heater has an amazing flame…

Made in Canada for Canadian winters, the heater’s after-burn means your Neo is not just clean burning, but burns less wood than most other heaters

Perfect for larger homes, the Neo can fit into an existing open fireplace, or you can buy the optional zero clearance kit so you can build a timber frame for new homes

One impressive heater packed with features like auto start fan, leaver lock door for safety, single air control, 2 fans for extra hot air makes it a must buy wood fire

The neo inbuilt wood heater is the latest in advancement in wood heating technology.

Since wood heaters have become the main stream heating, there  have been a consistent drive to make wood heaters burn less, burn cleaner, product less smoke, burn longer : all this is achieved in the Neo wood heater range.

Pacific Energy first made wood heaters back in 1974, they started with a focus on how to make fire burn cleaner.

The way to do this, is to focus on the fire first – not the heat.

By increasing the temperature the fire burns at, and having the air the fire needs to burn supplied at a higher temperature, you can increase the performance of fire.

The neo inbuilt wood heater uses pre heated air coming in to the fire box : this air comes in at three different points.

First, one third of the air is used for the air wash that goes over the glass to keep it clear of soot, and clean to see though.

The air wash is per-heated to 300+oC  that goes over the glass to give you the cleanest glass you will see on any wood heater

Secondly, is the bellows : inside the firebox, directly under the door opening is bellows

What this does is introduces hot air directly into your fires coals to give them a real boost.

Most wood heaters only have air coming in at the to of the fire, this means you are left with the logs/coals starved of oxygen and leaving your fire with dean, unburnt coals when the fire goes out

Not the neo inbuilt wood heater the bellows ensure your fire is charged with air : its like burning a fire on an old fasion grate and ashtray : fast to get going, making your fire easy to light.

Thirdly is what Pacific Energy Neo is all about, the baffle.

All wood heaters use “secondary air” technology. What this is : by introducing extremely hot air into the smoke your fire produces, you can re ignite the smoke ( which is un- burnt fuel )

This re-ignition does a number of things

– it gives you more heat : the additional flames you get from this re-ignition is heat you would not have have got.

– it reduces the smoke : reducing emissions for greenhouse gasses is the worlds number one long term issue, and wood heaters do produce smoke that does enter the atmosphere : by re burning the smoke, turning it into flames, you are significantly reducing the emissions

In the 1970’s and 1980’s when the wood heater boom took off, there was no real focus here, and for every 1kG of wood you burnt in your heater made in the 1970’s and 1980’s you produced up to 50gms of emissions in to the atmosphoere

In the 1990’s and 2000’s, the introduction of secondary burn made a massive difference, heaters started to produce less smoke : down form 50gms per 1kG of wood – to 5gmrs per igk of wood you burnt

The Neo only produced 1.0Grms of emissions per 1Kg of Wood you burn

How they do this is significantly increasing the temperature of the secondly air. Where traditional wood heaters have a round 25mm stainless ( or sometimes steel ) tube with holes under the baffle

This 25mm round tube has air passing through it, and being directly over your fire, it gets hot – the heat heats the air and when it comes out of the holes, this hot air ignites the smoke – creating a secondary burn

The difference is in the NEO wood heaters, rather than a small 25mm tube : the entire top baffle is the secondary air.

The baffle is 900% larger than a single 25mm air tube : thus this significant surface area increases the temperature of the air passing though this from a traditional 250+oC to over 800+oC

This significant air temperature entering the un burnt smoke ignites the smoke to create an extraordinary increased secondary burn.

Not only is it impressive to see, its actually doing some amazing stuff.

Its re burning more smoke than other heaters, turning this into more heat : the 82% efficiency is almost 30% more heat using the same amount of wood than most other heaters.

This increased efficiency means you now burn less wood, up to 3 tons of wood less per year.

And because this extra heat is coming form the re-ignition of the smoke, you are burning significantly less wood.

The construction of Pacific Energy’s baffle is 304grade Stainless Steel : it comes with a 10year warranty ( no other heater warrants their baffles for more than 12 months… )

neo 2.5 - heats 300+m2

Heating 280-300m2 (or 25kW) with an impressive 72% average efficiency, stunning flame pattern, 2 x extra quiet fans, the inbuilt neo 2.5 also offers a burn time of well over 12 hours on a single load of firewood. This heater is designed to perform in the toughest and coldest environments

neo for existing chimney

The firebox is:
838mm wide x 546mm high x 502mm deep.
The fascia is:
1,020mm wide x 724mm high

neo for new homes

the optional zero clearance kit is what you need for new homes.
this allows your inbuilt neo to be installed into a timber frame

pacific energy's unique after-burn

unique to pacific energy is the stainless steel baffle that super charge heats the air before it enters the triple burn. this process not only reduces emissions, but give you one impressive flame
Glass size : w440mm x h235
Firebox : w470mm x h245mm x 620mm

ebt - extended burn time

EBT is a feature that is perfect for taller chimneys that need extra flue.
the ebt ensures your heater will perform perfectly no matter how much flue your heater has

review on the neo 2.5 inbuilt wood heater

As for performance - WOW. these burn so clean and the flame pattern is amazing. The 2 x fans are quiet and very easy to access for cleaning. The only comment would be with the glass size, not as large as some heaters, but the depth of the firebox and how clean the glass stays makes up for it. Our heater score is 9/10
