Wood-fuelled heating systems, also known as biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers, Biomass boilers are suitable for residential and commercial purposes.
A Biomass boiler can have significant savings compared to a standard boiler.
MCS approved condensing wood pellet boilers (Biomass) with efficiencies of up to 97%, easy installation, straightforward daily operation and low maintenance. Available in outputs from 5-36kW.
How do Biomass Boilers work?
Wood is by far not a ‘new‘ technology yet we have never made full use of it in our homes, with new technology wood can now heat everything including our hot water.
That open fire may look lovely when it burns bright and feels cosy, but they are not an efficient way to heat a room. Most of the heat goes up the chimney and, as the fire draws in oxygen to burn, it creates draughts in the room that can cancel out the benefit of the heat.
Modern wood-burning stoves such as biomass are a huge improvement on the open fire for room heating. They convert 70 percent of the fuel into useful heat. If you attach a back boiler, they can also help heat water and can supply radiators.
Even more efficient is wood pellet boilers which can operate at 85 to 90 percent efficiency. They spread the heat quickly and more efficiently than standard room fires. They are easily installed, quick and easy to use and have automatic ignitions and a thermostatic control, some biomass boilers also have smart technology which allows you to control everything from the ferocity of the ignition to the temperature the boiler is to reach.
Biomass boilers can heat most household oil or gas heat including underfloor heating, hot water and radiators. 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.
