Biomass Systems - Wood Fuelled Boilers

Biomass heating systems use a variety of biological materials as fuel to power heating boilers. Modern biomass systems are self-contained, clean and compact. As a result, they are increasing in popularity and are well worth considering as a renewable energy alternative to traditional boilers.

Various different types of biomass fuels are available, including wood in various forms and food waste.

Wood-fuelled heating systems - biomass systems - burn wood pellets, wood chips or logs, for single rooms, central heating, hot water systems and underfloor heating systems, for domestic or commercial applications.

A stove burns biomass fuel to heat a single room and can include a back boiler for water heating.

A biomass boiler can power a central heating system and/or a hot water system and make considerable savings over a coal, oil, propane gas or electric heating system.

Some of the benefits of biomass heating systems

How does it work?

Biomass boiler systems differ from conventional boilers in the method of fuel delivery. Pellets or wood chips are fed into the boiler by an automatically controlled system. As the fuel enters the boiler, the fuel is ignited on start-up either by electric elements or an electric blower. The hot gases are then passed through a heat exchanger to heat the water.

Savings

Savings in carbon dioxide emissions are very significant - around 7.5 tonnes a year when a wood-fuelled boiler replaces a solid (coal) fired system or electric storage heating.

Financial savings vary depending upon the fuel type and usage.

Earnings

The UK Government's Domestic RHI scheme opened on 9 April 2014. Under the scheme, biomass-only boilers and biomass pellet stoves with integrated boilers earn 12.2p per kWh for 7 years.

Commercial RHI for Biomass tier 1 is currently set at 8.6p per kWh for 20 years.

More details can be found on the Government website: www.gov.uk (link to "Increasing the use of low-carbon technologies" page)

Internet Boiler Monitoring

We connect all our biomass boilers to the internet, which means that we can access the control panel remotely to check on how the boiler is running and diagnose any faults.
