Case Studies

Blackmuir House

Domestic Biomass Installation

Reason for Switching to Biomass

5 bedroom house with very old in-efficient oil boiler, the boiler which was expensive to run and the house wasn't warm enough in the winter. Instead of upgrading with oil decided to look at different options, and chose Biomass pellets.

The Solution

Installed in 2014. A fully automatic 25kW Biotech wood pellet boiler to provide heating and hot water. Boiler and 5 tonne fuel store built in a container which arrived to site fully fitted out and ready to go. connected to house with highly insulated underground pipe.

The Result

Fuel cost saving up to 40%.

Warm house all year round.

The RHI incentive and interest free loan from the Scottish government helped make our decision. R&I Cruden have been very helpful, always prompt and efficient
