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.
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!
