Are you looking to offset your ever increasing central heating bills?

Biomass Energy Systems incl. Wood Fueled Heating

Another way to save a lot of money and reduce your carbon footprint is by using biomass energy. Biomass is biological material derived from living or recently living organisms. So biomass is made up of plant based material and also animal and vegetable derived material. However wood is the largest biomass energy source to date, dead trees, branches, tree stumps and wood chips. As an energy source, biomass can either be used to produce heat, or be converted into a biofuel.

At Futureplumb, we are determined to help reduce the country’s carbon footprint and help save you money, so we provide biomass systems such as wood-fuelled heating systems, which burn wood pellets, chips or logs 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. Whilst a boiler burns logs, pellets, or chips and is connected to a central heating and hot water system. A wood-fuelled boiler could save you up to £650 a year compared to electric heating.

The below tables shows how much you could save by installing pellet central heating in a typical four-bedroom detached house with basic insulation:

Existing system Savings per year RHI income per year
Electricity (old electric storage heaters) £/year £340 to £650 £2,135 to £3,390
Carbon dioxide/year 8.4 to 14.5 tonnes
Oil older (non-condensing) £/year £335 to £470 £2,135 to £3,390
Carbon dioxide/year 4.8 to 7.5 tonnes
LPG older (non-condensing) £/year £950 to £1,435 £2,135 to £3,390
Carbon dioxide/year 4.7 to 7.3 tonnes
Coal £/year £265 to 425 £2,135 to £3,390
Carbon dioxide/year 9.0 to 14.5 tonnes
Gas older (non-condensing) £/year £25 to £80 £2,135 to £3,390
Carbon dioxide/year 4.0 to 6.3 tonnes

Maintenance

Wood fuelled boilers, stoves and room heaters should be kept clean and swept regularly to remove ash. Ash quantities are generally very low. You are likely to have to empty the ash bin once a week. A log fire requires ash removal before every use. Some appliances, particularly boilers have self-cleaning systems built in. Some boilers have a mechanism for compressing the ash which reduces the number of times the ash bin needs emptying.

For more information or for us to come and survey your boiler to give you advice on which biomass heating system you should go for, or to install it, please, dont’ hesitate to contact us.
