Carnach Guest House

Commercial Biomass Installation

Reason for Switching to Biomass

Large guest house and B&B, previously used £12,000 per year heating oil and house wasn’t warm enough in the winter. Customer couldn't afford to keep heating house at this rising cost.

The Solution

Installed in 2014. A fully automatic 150kW wood pellet boiler to provide heating and hot water for guest house and rented house close by. Boiler, buffer located in existing boiler house where 2 oil boilers heated the home previously. A small extension was built to house the custom built 10 tonne fuel store. Underground pipe now connects the rented property, replacing an old oil boiler.

The Result

Fuel cost saving up to 50%.

RHI payments for 20 years , CO2 reduced.

Warm houses all year round with lots of hot water and affordable.
