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.
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.
