Domestic Biomass Installation

Reason for Switching to Biomass

Boiler was getting old and thinking about changing, instead of opting for new oil boiler which was costly to run decided to go for a duel fuel biomass boiler as wood supply was already there due to stove in house.

The Solution

Installed in 2014. A 30kW Solar Focus Log and Pellet boiler. Boiler, buffer, highly efficient pump sets for heating and hot water control. 4 tonne pellet store custom built in half of boiler house.

The Result

CO2 reduced.

House is warm all the time and lots of hot water.

Can use own wood to provide fuel when at home and have the time, and can change to fully automatic pellet option if too busy or away from home.

Heating and boiler controlled by app on smart phone.

Thorough information and top service.
