What are the benefits of installing a biomass boiler system?
Biomass boilers are very efficient, durable, clean and easy to use, requiring minimal management time. They are an environmentally friendlier alternative to oil and gas fuelled systems.
Through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), non-domestic system owners can already enjoy income and savings based returns of between 10-25% guaranteed for 20 years.
Until the Renewable Heat Incentive is applicable for domestic installations, you can still receive £950 from the Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme to offset against the price of the installation of your system. If you receive a RHPP payment you are still eligible to receive the RHI when it is introduced.
A biomass boiler is an ideal replacement for an existing boiler powered by gas, oil or LPG. It will provide a very similar of control and reliability but with reduced running costs, particularly when compared to oil or LPG.
A new boiler can be easily connected to your existing heating system with very little or no disruption to your premises.
Biomass boilers are considered to be close to carbon neutral, making a significant improvement to the energy rating of your building.
These heating systems will save you money by reducing the energy you use to heat your property and they will also cut your carbon footprint and contribute to the country's move to a low carbon economy.
Typical fuel price comparisons
The table above indicates the fuel price only – this does not include any payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive. With the added revenue from the RHI, these savings will be considerably more.
