Residential biomass boilers are a very environmentally friendly, safe and convenient way of heating your home. These boilers burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room. The boiler can also run your central heating, underfloor heating and/or hot water at your home.
Key Benefits of Residential Biomass Boilers
Affordable heating fuel. Although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is very often cheaper than other heating options especially fossil fuels such as oil or coal. The price of fossil fuels will continue to rise as demand will eventually outstrip its supply.
Financial support. Residential biomass boilers could benefit from the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which was finally launched by the UK Government in April 2014. You will get paid 12.2p for every kilowatt hour (kWh) your biomass system produces over a seven year period.
A low-carbon option. The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those that were used for fuel.
The most commonly used biomass fuels are virgin wood, usually waste products, high yield crops grown specifically for energy yield and agricultural residues.
There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the biomass fuel. However, as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than the emissions from fossil fuels.
