Biomass Boilers: Turn up the Heat

Biomass, the natural and sustainable choice for heating and hot water

Wood-fuelled heating systems are very similar to conventional gas boilers. They provide you with space heating and hot water for the entire home, but instead of using gas (or oil) to produce the heat, they combust sustainably sourced wood pellets.

Using wood in place of fossil fuels helps to prevent long-term climate change. When trees grow they absorb carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide is then released during combustion. They are essentially carbon neutral and good for the environment.

What is a biomass boiler?

Biomass boilers are very similar to conventional gas boilers that you will be familiar with, providing you with space heating and hot water for the entire home, but instead of using gas (or oil) to produce the heat, they combust sustainably sourced wood pellets. Using wood in place of fossil fuels helps to prevent long-term climate change, since the carbon dioxide released during the combustion was actually absorbed while the tree was growing, so they are essentially carbon neutral and good for the environment.

Enjoy The Benefits

  • Government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments over a 7 year period
  • Reduced fuel bills, compared with oil, LPG or electric heating
  • Sustainable fuel source, which protects from rising oil and gas prices

How it works

Biomass boilers can replace oil or gas boilers to heat hot water and radiators (or under floor heating). They burn logs, wood chips, wood pellets or other forms of biomass. The most advanced boilers are fully automatic. They control the amount of fuel and air supplied to the combustion chamber. As a result they are highly efficient and emissions are low. They are fed with wood chips or pellets from a large hopper sited nearby. If you’ve got space, manufacturers recommend a hopper that’s big enough to hold a year’s supply of fuel. This minimises transport and delivery costs for fuel, as well as work for the owner.
