Biomass Boilers & Solid Fuel Stoves/Burners
Biomass boilers (& solid fuel stoves) burn biomass/wood fuels extremely efficiently and use the heat produced to provide heating and hot water. They can also be more cost effective and efficient than traditional fossil fuel boilers, especially in rural or off mains gas areas.
Biomass boilers are typically externally sited and are extremely cost effective measures for large consumers of heat and hot water. Many domestic clients are able to claim commercial RHI (biomass only). Please contact us for details.
Solid/Multi-Fuel Stoves are very much on the increase as they represent a good investment in the long term alongwith all the romatic atmospheric appeal that a real fire brings with it.
It is essential that everyone understands a solid fuel appliance - installed properly as part of a designed system by a HETAS qualified engineer and
subsequently serviced properly will give many years of good service. A poorly installed unit is extremely dangerous and can kill. Solid fuel systems reach temperatures in excess of 400 degrees
Solid fuel represents an efficient and economical method of fuelling your home. There is a wide range of manufactured smokeless fuels and heat logs to choose from. As you always hold stock, solid fuel gives you independence from reliance on utility companies, ensuring that you don't need to worry about supply failures or power cuts.
Solid fuels such as coal and wood can be a cost effective way of heating your home. Renewable fuels such as wood are a resourceful alternative to fossil fuels. Wood is considered to be a carbon neutral fuel as carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere as the wood grows and is released later when the wood is burnt.
Solid fuel (mostly coal) used to be the most popular form of heating for homes in the UK, but from the 1960s natural gas central heating grew in popularity and is now used by the majority of commercial and domestic users. However, in recent years solid fuels especially wood logs and pellets are increasing in popularity.
These are some benefits to solid fuels:
- Low running costs - Solid fuel is an efficient and economical method of heating your home 24 hours a day.
- The healthy option - Solid fuel heating can greatly reduce condensation, eliminating household mould often associated with 'on/off' fires. Medical research has also shown that solid fuel heating can reduce the risk of hay fever, asthma and eczema.
