Biomass Boilers use wood in either pellet, chip or logs to generate heat for domestic or commercial properties.
Biomass Boilers are a CO2 neutral alternative to heating systems burning fossil fuels and although some storage space is required for the wood pellets, Biomass Boilers usually require less space than other alternative renewable heating systems. Eligible for the Government’s Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI), Biomass Boilers could both save you money in fuel bills and also entitle you to receive funding.
What are the Benefits of Biomass Boilers?
High operating temperature compared to other renewable heating options so can be used with any heating system.
CO2 neutral as only as much CO2 is released into the atmosphere as the wood absorbed as it was growing.
Potential endless fuel supply as new wood crop can be grown.
Waste wood can be used in the production of pellets.
Low sulphur emissions helping to reduce pollution levels.
Less dependency on fossil fuels.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) funding available.
How does a Biomass Boiler work?
You supply the system with wood.
2. Wood is Burned
The wood is burned to generate heat.
3. Heat Transferred
The heat from the fire is transferred to the water in your hot water tank.
4. Hot Water
The water from your hot water tank is used to provide heat for radiators and hot water outlets.
5. Expansion Valve
Cold water is drawn into the system and the cycle begins again.
