Biomass boilers

Biomass boilers

Biomass boilers are an efficient form of heating used to replace the traditional systems. Not only do they burn environmentally friendly products, but they’ll help you to reduce your energy bills too.

Non biomass boilers burn fuels such as gas and oil to generate heat, meaning more carbon emissions are created and your energy bills are higher.

Biomass boilers are just as easy to install in homes, and local councils are now opting for this type of heating system for new builds. Biomass boilers are also an effective way for the Government to meet renewable targets.

Biomass boiler information

  • Biomass boilers are notorious for their energy efficiency and can be used for both your central heating and hot water supply.

  • These types of boilers burn renewable fuels that aren’t in danger of running out, unlike oil, coal and natural gas. Instead, biomass products include wood chip, wood pellets and crops.

  • With biomass boilers you’ll be able to help reduce the damaging effects of global warming. Other renewable products that have the same effect are solar panels and heat pumps.

  • These renewable heating systems can be installed into nearly every home and in most cases will fit into the same place as your old appliance. Commercial biomass boilers would be larger installations designed to provide a far greater heat output.

  • With the burning of biomass products, ash will be created. This can be used to fertilise your garden and needs to be cleaned out every six to eight weeks, depending on how much you use the boiler.

Suitability of a biomass boiler

A biomass boiler won’t be suitable for everyone, so if you’re considering an installation you should make sure it’s right for your home.

First and foremost you’ll need a large area in which to store the fuel supply. Whether it’s wood pellets or crops you’ll have to keep the biomass products somewhere.

Building Regulations could become a problem if anything has been detailed for your area. If you’re unsure of the regulations for your property or local area, just speak to the council or a local planning officer.

No smoking zones also prohibit the use of biomass boilers, and for more information on this visit

The flue, which is used to release waste gases into the atmosphere, must also not exceed one metre of your roofline. Otherwise planning permission would be needed. This is the same for domestic biomass boilers in Conservation Areas or World Heritage Sites.

They came did an assessment but did not get back to me re any sort of price or and sort of timescale as to how long it would take. The consultant also did not provide any info regarding tanks where the heated water would be placed.

We are unable to benefit from Biomass boilers but that should not detract from the professionalism of the company rep. We enjoyed doing business with this company due to their honesty, in not trying to sell us something we could not benefit from. Thankyou.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

Homes are given an energy ranking depending on just how efficient they are and ratings are shown in the data below. This varies from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the very least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have more affordable energy bills as more heat is going to be kept in your house. You can increase your home's efficiency with insulation such as upvc double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
