Biomass boilers run on wood pellets, chips or logs.
They can be used to supply heat to one room or to power central heating or hot water boilers.
As biomass boilers run on renewable materials, they’re a great way to produce renewable energy. If you use a biomass boiler to power your home then you could be eligible for RHI payments from the government.
Is the biomass boiler suitable for my home?
Biomass boilers take up a similar amount of space to other boilers. However, you’ll need quite a bit of room to store your boiler fuel. You’ll also probably need to install a special flue, which can be quite expensive.
If you’re thinking about installing a biomass boiler, it’s a good idea to get some advice from a heating professional before you go ahead.
