Biomass Installation for the Renewable Heat Incentive
Size of installation:
25kW Biomass boiler
System being replaced:
Wood burner with radiators
We were contacted by our client towards the end of Summer to discuss a replacement system for their wood burner and central heating which was not efficient enough for their home.
When visiting the property to discuss requirements, we discovered the client already had Solar PV and Solar Thermal providing their electric and hot water, the house was well insulated and was located in a remote area.
The client was keen to have a more convenient heating system where storing wood and stoking the fire would not be required. The client was already aware of the Government grants available and expressed an interest in Biomass. The most suitable system for our clients home was an automated 25kW OkoFEN biomass boiler. To utilise space, we used an out building to install the boiler and pellet silo which also allowed easy access for fuel deliveries.
We also installed a new central heating system and removed the back boiler from the wood stove to improve the heat efficiency throughout the house. The client is very happy with the results and is enjoying a cosy home with reduced energy bills.
