Biomass Boilers or Air Source Heating?

An Air Source Heat Pump system or biomass boiler burning wood pellets, wood chips or other biomass materials instead of using electricity, gas, LPG or oil. Either of these renewable energy system can be connected to your central heating and hot water system.

What are the benefits?

Biomass boilers are a convenient and highly efficient way to generate instant heat energy. They offer significant carbon dioxide savings of around 7.5 tonnes a year when replacing a solid (coal) fired system or electric storage heating. Financial savings vary depending on the fuel being replaced. Any off-grid premises replacing an oil-fired or LPG heating system with a biomass boiler, for example, will achieve savings of up to 50% on fuel bills alone.

In addition, biomass boilers qualify for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments from the Government. These are guaranteed for 20 years, providing a very healthy return on your investment, beside the considerable savings you will make on your energy bills.

Biomass fuel is up to:

  • 75% cheaper than electricity
  • 50% cheaper than oil
  • 60% cheaper than LPG

Who should choose a biomass boiler?

The systems, like those manufactured by our preferred supplier, ETA , are an ideal choice for most agricultural, commercial and industrial premises. They are particularly suitable for farms, large country homes, leisure centres, schools, care homes, hotels, greenhouses and garden centres.
