Residential Biomass Boilers

Key Facts


Burns wood chips, logs  or pellets so fuel cost are significantly lower than fossil fuels


Tax free payments from the Government through Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI)


A typical return on investment of 17% a year


Reduce your carbon footprint


Ideal for larger properties


Premium quality boilers installed



They pay for themselves by reducing your fuel costs – wood pellets are around 40% cheaper than LPG or electricity

Biomass boilers attract Renewable Heat Incentive payments each quarter for seven years providing an income stream for the household

Technically advanced, biomass boilers are up to 98% efficient, so you’ll notice a big difference if you are replacing an old, inefficient boiler

Larger properties, rural properties or older buildings, will particularly benefit from a biomass boiler as the system lends itself to a ‘district’ layout.

Low maintenance and no planning permission, means that installation and upkeep is a breeze

The small amount of ash that is produced can be composted – typically 1% by weight

Biomass boilers are carbon neutral. The carbon you release when you burn your biomass fuel is equivalent to that absorbed by the plant when it was growing, therefore the net result is neutral.

These fuel efficient boilers are a favourite amongst those who want to keep their carbon emissions low and save money on their energy bills.


Biomass boilers burn pellets, logs or wood. Burning plant biomass does release carbon, but only the amount the plant consumed, so the fuel is classed as carbon neutral. By switching your boiler’s fuel to a biomass means that you qualify for a Renewable Heat Incentive payment from the Government. This is an annual payment for the first 7 years to encourage carbon reduction.


Large rural properties will benefit the most from installing a biomass boiler, but even a small domestic installation could generate £960 in income for you. (Based on 12kw). The savings are even greater where the biomass boiler is replacing an LPG or oil system, and significant when replacing an old inefficient boiler. Customers typically experience a 17% return on investment each year – better than any bank!

“The biomass boiler is so easy to maintain. It is automatically fed and all I have to do is empty the ash pan once a month. The extra income is useful – a real added bonus!”
