Kintradwell Estate

Commercial Biomass Installation

Reason for Switching to Biomass

Oil boiler previously heating large estate house and office with a large oil bill. Estate has it's own wood supply so can provide wood chip for boiler

The Solution

Installed in 2015. A 100kW Guntamatic wood chip biomass boiler, boiler and fuel store housed in existing shed and heating connected to house and office with underground pipe. Existing oil boiler left in as back-up if necessary.

The Result

Fuel cost saving up to 75%.

CO2 reduced.

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

Self-sufficient fuel supply.

The installation was quick, neat and tidy. Great attention to detail throughout and no disruption internally. Handled the RHI application on our behalf making the process very easy
