As winter draws ever closer it seems as if many of us are undergoing a battle of wills, determined to put off heating our homes until the last possible moment for fear of rising utility bills hitting us in the new year.
Energy prices have soared in recent years and despite Labour’s promise to freeze prices if they get into power, many of us are feeling the pinch each month. Add to that concerns over exactly what the burning of fossil fuels is doing to our environment and it’s not hard to see why many of us are looking for other ways to heat our homes.
One type of alternative heating device is biomass boilers. In fact, in 2011 the Energy Minister went as far as to say that biomass boilers have the potential to bring the UK out of its recession. Whether they’ve quite managed that is a case for debate but there’s no doubting that they are a green way to produce cheap heat.
Biomass boilers work quite simply by burning wood and releasing the solar energy stored within it. This energy is used to cheaply heat a home. Although carbon dioxide is produced, the amount is minimal and no more than a tree would release in its lifetime. The type of wood burnt will depend upon the boiler system installed. Common types include the traditional wood log, wood pellets and wood chips. Ancillary equipment including flues, pipework, tanks and control systems will accompany biomass boilers, making sure they have all they need to heat a home.
Not only do biomass boilers save homeowners money and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere but they can also help local communities. The fuel supply chain, or in other words the way customers obtain the wood to burn, can kick-start local businesses and even improve the investment placed in woodland areas. On top of all that, resources that would have simply gone to landfill can be used as biomass fuel. For businesses, they’ll also benefit from a much improved energy efficiency rating which can assist with meeting building relations.
