By installing a Wood Fuelled Heating System in your home, you could benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Click here for information: http://www.rhincentive.co.uk/

The wood-fuelled heating systems that we install, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers.

A stove burns logs or pellets to heat a single room – and may be fitted with a back boiler to provide water heating as well. Our boilers burns pellets or and are connected to a central heating and hot water system. A wood-fuelled biomass boiler could save you up to £880 a year compared to electric heating.

The benefits of biomass heating

1 Affordable heating fuel
Although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options.

2 Financial support
Wood fuel boiler systems could benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive.

3 A low-carbon option
The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel. There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the fuel, but as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than the emissions from fossil fuels.
