With engineers who are qualified and experienced at fitting all types of boilers, including biomass boilers, we are available to fit what you need in West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, or Hampshire.

What is a biomass boiler?

Biomass boilers burn compressed and refined organic matter to provide heat and hot water. Although the material that can be burned in the boiler is wide-ranging, what we tend to use in the UK is pellets or chips. These pellets are made from waste timber, agricultural bi-products, and even food waste. They release less carbon than fossil fuels and are a great way to use a material that would normally be thrown away. The pellets are clean and easy to store as well.

Biomass boilers are large and industrial-looking, therefore their location needs consideration. They are designed to heat the whole house and the hot water, not just the room it is installed in.

Is biomass heating cheap?

The pellets or chips cost roughly the same as mains gas would cost to heat a home. These can be bought in bulk if you have the space to store them. It is anticipated that the pellets will reduce in price as more suppliers become available.

The biomass boilers themselves are more expensive to buy and install than regular boilers. Government grants can help make them more affordable but you must make sure that you qualify for the grant.

Is a biomass boiler the best heating?

Biomass is an alternative way of heating your home. It’s considered a greener method of heating because the pellets can come from a diverse source and the carbon created when burning is offset. There may be government incentives such as grants to help with the cost of having a biomass boiler installed.

If your property isn’t on the mains gas grid, a biomass boiler is one heating system to consider along with ground-source heat pumps and air-source heat pumps. Which one is the best one for your household will depend on several factors. If you want to discuss your options with our team of experts, get in touch and we can make an appointment.
