BIOMASS! It’s all about being green….
Biomass boilers aren’t just a passing fad they are becoming a necessity. Whether to future proof your home, gain RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) or save on your heating bill biomass boilers just make sense.
For domestic heating purposes the main biomass fuel is wood in the form of logs, pellets or wood chips – although there are boilers available that burn a range of cereals.
Smaller biomass stoves can be used just for room heating, with a back boiler to heat the water, or to produce hot water and heating for the whole house.
Wood is hardly a new fuel for heating houses, but the technology has improved considerably to make it more efficient. Open fires look lovely, but they are not a good way to heat a room. Most of the heat goes up the chimney and, as the fire draws in oxygen to burn, it creates draughts in the room that can cancel out the benefit of the heat.
Wood-burning stoves these days are a huge improvement on the open fire for room heating. They convert 70 per cent of the fuel into useful heat. If you attach a back boiler, they can also help heat water and supply some radiators.
You’re probably questioning why we are writing about this but we offer a mobile processing service, basically we come to you, fell your trees and turn them into sizable logs for you to fuel your Biomass boiler.
Over the last few months All Seasons GM Ltd, Tewkesbury have been approached by new owners of Biomass boilers to discuss creating fuel from timber they may have. So if installing a Biomass boiler is on your to-do list and you want to discuss the services we offer please do not hesitate in contacting us.
