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


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

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. They also provide an extra income stream for your business.


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 20 years to encourage carbon reduction.


Biomass boilers can be used to heat a large property such as a hotel; commercial premises such as a factory or workshop as well as a small community setting such as farm or holiday park. They are particularly beneficial for rural premises or those which currently use LPG or oil because they are off-grid. Read case studies on how many businesses have obtained a return on investment in the region of 30%.

“Installing a biomass boiler on the farm means we can have hot water and heating by burning logs. The RHI payments mean we should cover the cost of the boiler in around 5 years.”
