Wood Burners & Boilers
Biomass boilers are suitable for domestic and commercial premises. They act as a replacement for, or as a suplement to, existing boiler heating systems. They can range in size up to large scale industrial solutions for large premises. They operate best when combined with a thermal heat store.
Thermal heat stores are purpose built hot water stores that retain heated water until it is needed. Highly insulated, they store spare 'heat' generated by renewable systems and can deliver almost instant heating to your systems when required.
Wood burners or stoves can act as a room heater or, with a back boiler, also partially or fully heat your home.
Don't buy a wood burner or biomass boiler until you are sure of the correct size needed.
We are contacted by many people who have purchased a wood burner or boiler that is either too large or small for their needs. They find themselves spending too much on fuel or not getting value for money.
We urge you to contact any qualified HETAS or Microgeneration Biomass certified organisation for a proper survey BEFORE you buy. They can also recommend a wide range of certified appliances that qualify for government grants of up to £1500 towards the cost.
The Greener Alternative will be happy to perform such a survey and calculation for you. We can also suggest reputable suppliers, stocking certified appliances that we will be delighted to install for you.
