Biomass boilers and boiler stoves are fully automatic appliances, behaving more like an oil or gas boiler, and use advanced controls which cleverly regulate the amount of fuel being delivered to the burner to match the heat demand on the boiler. The fuel is fed to the burner via an auger connected to the pellet store or hopper. This can, in turn, be automatically supplied from a bulk pellet store which can vary in size.
Unlike fossil fuels which are a depleting resource, biomass fuel can be sourced from a “closed carbon cycle” system, where the amount of carbon emitted during the burning of fuel is balanced by the planting of trees. This environmentally friendly way of harvesting fuel to heat your home, therefore cancels out the harmful effects of carbon being released into our atmosphere. Trees need carbon dioxide to grow so it is good partnership, one which is environmentally friendly.
The term biomass refers to a type of fuel sourced from living/non living plant matter, which could be in the form of either wooden logs, wood pellets or chips – wood pellets being the most energy efficient. Our biomass boilers use wood pellets, logs and also chips
