Wood burners

With a wood-powered burner you can supply heat to a solitary room or even connect it to your property’s central heating. Also known as biomass boilers, wood burners convert pellets, chips or logs into heat.

With a wood burner for your home’s central heating you can save up to £600 a year, as opposed to using electricity.

Wood heating benefits

  • A cheaper form of heating

Although the cost of wood does vary, it is often a much more affordable form of heating than using gas or electricity. In fact, you could see energy reductions up to £600 a year by utilising this heating source. Old gas and electric boilers can fault unexpectedly, leaving you with expensive repair bills.

  • Government financial support

As part of the Government’s efforts to become the ‘greenest ever’ they have created a variety of funds and support for renewable heating. By investing in a wood burner you could benefit from the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP), a one off grant for the installation. This is worth £950. On top of this, you could also benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which pays out for every unit of renewable heat produced.

  • Cut carbon emissions

Wood burning is known as a carbon neutral form of heat generation. This is because the levels of carbon dioxide emitted when burned, is the amount absorbed over its lifetime. It’s a sustainable form of heating, so long as new plants continue to grow. This is far better for the environment than gas and electric heating, which release emissions and raise a property’s carbon footprint.

Savings with a wood burner

With a wood burner there are savings to be made of both annual energy bills and carbon emissions. By replacing gas heating you’ll save up to £100 a year, whilst you’ll see a £580 saving by replacing electric.

The carbon savings achievable are also substantial, up to 7.5 tonnes when replacing a coal or electric storage system.

The below table suggests the possible savings with a three-bedroom semi-detached home.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

Homes are given an energy rating dependent on just how efficient they are and ratings are shown in the data underneath. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less costly energy bills as more heat will probably be retained in the home. It is possible to enhance your home's efficiency with insulation including double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
