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 www.uksmokecontrolareas.co.uk/locations

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.

Biomass boilers FAQs

Can I use a biomass boiler with other forms of heating?

Biomass boilers can be designed to work with other kinds of heating. The most common of these is solar thermal. This is a popular renewable energy pairing. Solar thermal heating will meet your hot water needs during the summer while a biomass boiler can operate as a backup during the winter when solar thermal panels do not perform as well.

Is a biomass boiler compatible with my existing central heating system?

Biomass boilers will work with existing central heating systems, presuming this is not decades old, whether they use radiators or under floor heating. A surveyor will check the existing system you have in place before quoting for or recommending a biomass boiler to you.

Do biomass boilers take up lots of space?

Many domestic biomass boilers are no bigger than a standard gas boiler. However, they do require a flue, a feeder and a space to store the fuel. These can be designed to suit many different properties and will fit in lots of homes or a garage or outbuilding.

Do biomass boilers need lots of maintenance?

Biomass boilers do require some maintenance. Many manufacturers recommend servicing twice a year, although this is often included in the installation cost. Many systems have automatic fuel loading that removes the need to manually load fuel. You will need to remove the ash from the boiler, but this is as easy as emptying a vacuum cleaner.
