Biomass boilers offer an environmentally friendly heating solution. Burning biomass, such as wood pellets or logs, emits the same amount of carbon dioxide as is absorbed while the plants were growing. Biomass boilers burn biomass fuels and efficiently extract energy to provide your heating and hot water. They are more cost effective and efficient than fossil fuel boilers, and produce large savings.

What is biomass?

Biomass is a renewable energy that uses material from living or recently living organisms to fuel the boiler that converts this into energy. Typically biomass boilers use wood pellets, wood chips, logs or cereals for fuel but they can also use animal, food and industrial waste.

How does it work?

Biomass boilers spread the heat through convection, rather than traditional radiation which means the room is heated more evenly and efficiently using a fan. They are clean and easy to use, with automatic ignition and thermostatic control. They have an integrated hopper, which automatically tops up the fuel. The boilers generally hold enough fuel for one to three days operation. The ash pan needs to be emptied every 6-8 weeks.

It is likely that a biomass boiler can be fitted in the same position as your current boiler so no more room will be needed, Maintenance for the stoves is straightforward due to the high efficiency, the boiler generally produces 1-2% ash which is an effective fertilizer that could be spread on your garden.

Type of biomass

There are varies types of biomass systems we offer, these include:


Biomass brings numerous benefits: economic, environmental, social and financial benefits due to the RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE SCHEME .
There are many benefits to using biomass, firstly it uses affordable heating fuel. Although the price in wood varies considerably is often cheaper than many other heating options. Biomass fuel is widely available throughout the UK. As well as guaranteeing supply, the use of UK-sourced biomass can support the rural economy by offering local business opportunities as well as keeping transport costs to a minimum.
As well as being 'green', biomass boilers reduce energy consumption - resulting in lower energy bills, especially as there are rising costs of traditional fuel. People living in rural areas where mains gas is not available, a biomass boiler is an attractive alternative to more conventional off-gas heating solutions such as oil and LPG. Biomass is cleaner and less volatile, biomass boilers are also independent of the ever changing prices of oil and gas.
The boilers are also very high efficiency and you can also earn while you save with the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme.
