What is biomass?
Biomass heating systems are fuelled by wood materials in the form of log, wood chip, or wood pellet. Heating with biomass is carbon neutral as the carbon dioxide (CO2) released when burning biomass is equal to the CO2 absorbed in the original growth of the biomass during photosynthesis.
Biomass boilers are connected to a central heating and/or hot water system in much the same way as a standard gas or oil boiler would. Wood burning is a great renewable solution for the direct replacement of ageing oil or LPG systems central heating systems in areas not serviced by the mains gas grid, or to replace expensive electric immersion or storage heaters. A location in a place like Sussex with plenty of rural areas is a perfect candidate for a biomass heating system.
What are the benefits?
Will biomass work for me?
Biomass boilers can be installed in most properties, but there are some considerations to take into account. Perhaps most importantly, wood boilers are larger than oil, LPG and gas boilers. This means you will need space to house the boiler and store the fuel somewhere that’s handy for deliveries but also appropriate for feeding the boiler.
