  • Get your fire serviced annually to check all is running well.

Biomass: Using Renewable Energy to Heat your Home

Biomass: Using Renewable Energy to Heat your Home

Biomass energy production involves the burning of wood pellets, logs and chips to heat a room or building. This type of energy is becoming increasingly popular in the UK as it is a clean, renewable way of producing heat. It also has the potential to save your household a great deal of money over time.

A biomass heating system could involve something as simple as installing a woodburning stove. This is a popular way of heating your home as well as helping the environment by using renewable fuels. Woodburning stoves can be used to burn seasoned logs as well as chips, pellets and briquettes. These will often be the more eco-friendly option as they will produce a long-lasting fire – they can contain almost twice as much energy as regular firewood.

It’s also possible to install more complex biomass systems to heat other parts of your home. If you want to do this, install a biomass boiler. This can then be used to heat water as well as simply heating a room.

One of the main reasons people install biomass heaters is to save money. The boiler/ stove will probably not be cheap to install, however it has the potential to save you a lot of money in the long run. The Energy Saving Trust think that households could save a considerable amount each year:

Of course, some people also want to use biomass heating because of the environmental impact. It’s much better for the environment than using up fossil fuels, prompting an increasing amount of households to do their bit for our planet. And there’s no denying that having a woodburner can add a lovely ambience to your home as well!
