Wood-fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers as well as larger commercial or industrial district heating schemes.
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. A boiler burns logs, pellets or chips, and is connected to a central heating and hot water system.
The benefits of biomass heating
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.
A BuildCert Approved multipurpose treatment to inhibit metal corrosion, scale, boiler noise and gas formation in Biomass Boiler heating systems.
A multipurpose treatment to eliminate scale and boiler noise in Biomass Boiler heating systems. The reduction of scale in the Biomass Boiler will increase its efficiency by increase the thermal transfer at the heat exchange.
A BuildCert Approved multipurpose anti-freeze treatment to provide frost protection and inhibit metal corrosion, scale, boiler noise and gas formation in Biomass Boiler heating systems.
A heavy duty system cleaner for Biomass Boiler heating systems. The advanced technology penetrates and removes iron oxide and calcium based deposits from heat exchangers and pipe work.
A system cleaner which penetrates and removes iron oxide and calcium based deposits. It can be used in Biomass Boiler heating systems to remove sludge and scale from existing systems and for the commissioning of new systems.
