At Ashwell Biomass we continue to receive regular enquiries from home owners asking whether a biomass boiler would be suitable for them.

The answer to this usually comes down to how much space is available as well as making sure the client is fully aware of what is involved with running and operating a biomass boiler as opposed to a fossil fuel alternative.  Other key factors for consideration are which biomass fuel to go for (wood chip, wood pellet or logs) as well as installation and fuel costs.

In terms of biomass fuel and boiler type each option has its pros and cons, which need to be discussed with the client in order to understand and propose the most appropriate solution for them.  However put very basically; a log boiler offers the lowest cost solution in terms of both installation and running costs but requires the most manual input; an automated wood pellet boiler solution offers the most convenience but has the highest fuel costs; whilst an automated wood chip boiler has the highest installation cost but benefits from lower fuel costs than wood pellet.      

Whilst a biomass boiler system is more expensive to install than its fossil fuel equivalent, being a sustainable form of heating it enables clients to benefit from the Government's domestic renewable heat incentive (dRHI) scheme as well as from any fuel savings (vs LPG, heating oil and electricity). 

To give you an idea of dRHI return, a property with a heating and hot water requirement of 25,000 kWhs per annum will return £1,635 per annum, equating to £11,445 over 7 years, which in most cases will cover the majority of the installation costs.

With the heating season upon us is your biomass boiler serviced and ready for the winter period?

Ashwell Biomass have been in the industry since the beginning in the UK, and have a dedicated team of engineers with a wealth of experience. They have been servicing and repairing boilers of various makes, models and sizes for a number of years.

It is important to ensure boilers are serviced regularly and a maintenance regime is in place in accordance with manufacturer recommendations and based on the boiler use and environment.

Ashwell Biomass stress the importance of using an experienced company to assist in the upkeep of the biomass boilers rather than just opting for the cheapest in the market. In their experience, cheapest isn't always the best, but when relying on the boiler to function when you most need it, find a company that provides a mix of value, service and knowledge:

We do strongly recommend regular servicing of any biomass boiler. This ensures the system runs efficiently and effectively as well as reducing the possibility of costly breakdowns. During a service we also check and report back any potential issues or recommend replacement parts as and when required which helps to encourage smooth running of the boiler.

Where a boiler is run continuously or substantially for a period of time (especially in Winter months), there is added pressure on the systems. Whilst (naturally) issues are likely to occur, as with any mechanical or electrical system, it is important that there is regular cleaning and general maintenance to try to prevent issues.

During summer months (generally) the boiler is not used as much as the colder periods. This is the most important time to get the boiler serviced thoroughly before switching on. Remember, the boiler would have been running hard during the previous winter and potentially sat not doing anything - or very little - leading up to winter. The boiler would have experienced wear and tear during that period, and a service/health check prior to switching back on is of utmost importance.

The frequency of servicing is dependent upon factors such as the running hours of the boiler and the type of fuel used, for example wood chip generates more ash than wood pellet and the more impurities in the chip (bark, detritus, etc) the more cleaning will be required. Ashwell use this information to determine which package best suits the client's needs and offers three standard servicing and maintenance packages - Silver, Gold and Platinum. All include a major service. Whilst Gold and Platinum include a minor service and the Platinum also includes a set number of breakdown call outs.

In addition to this there are a number of additional services that require consideration, which include flue cleaning, ash box cleaning, health checks and operative training. All of these are designed to ease workload and also provide valuable information regarding successful long term running of a biomass boiler."

Finally do not forget if claiming RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) it is part of the RHI process to be able to prove that regular servicing by a competent trained engineer takes place.

So remember to get your biomass boiler ready to keep you warm this Winter.
