Science has come a long way in the development of biomass for heating fuel. If you’re concerned about using expensive fossils fuels to heat your home, one option you may want to consider are Scottish Borders biomass boilers. There are lots of professional contractors in our network standing by ready to answer any questions you may have about using biomass to heat your home so you can feel confident about making the switch.
Biomass refers to anything that is living now or that has been living in the recent past. It typically involves plants or plant based materials that are harvested for use as heating fuel. Some of the more common materials include wood chips, corn, hemp, bamboo and sugarcane. Many times, wild plants are harvested and then used to create biomass fuel but there are also plenty of farms that specialize in producing this matter as well. Biomass can also be derived from other sources including household garbage and animal waste.
Just as there are numerous types of biomass available, there are also many varieties of biomass boilers. Some systems are fully automated ones that use a computer generated program to add fuel from a holding area as it is needed. These systems are ideal for large commercial buildings such as factories. Semi-automated biomass burners also operate automatically but require fuel to be added more frequently. These are better choices for smaller commercial structures. Pellet burners are normally chosen for household use and require biomass to be added manually as needed much like that of a traditional wood burning stove.

When considering the switch to biomass fuel, it’s important for Scottish Borders consumers to know the benefits of doing so which can include:
Biomass boilers can be messy and require a great deal of cleanup. This fuel typically comes in very large bags that can be heavy and awkward to transport. There is a great deal of concern among agriculturists as to whether biomass fuel depletes the food supply. Others are concerned about using wood as biomass because they fear it will lead to the over-harvesting of timber. Consumers can help mitigate these concerns by learning where their biomass fuel comes from. That way, they can ensure that waste product is being put to good use rather than buying material that might best be used for other purposes.
Once you’ve decided to install a biomass boiler, you may think that the cost of installation is going to be too expensive, which will lead you to consider the option of trying to install it yourself. However, it is never a good idea to try and save money when it comes to installing appliances like these because you either injure yourself or cause a lot of damage to your property in the process. If you find that the cost of paying for the new boiler and the installation is more than you thought, be sure to compare our free quotes for the latest deals and consider asking if there is any form of discount or rebate program available that will help cover part of the cost. These units should only be installed by qualified and certified Scottish Borders installers.
The single most important factor in determining the cost of a biomass heating system is the type of unit being installed, as commercial systems tend to run more than those designed for household use. It can also cost more money to install a unit that provides electricity or heats water in addition to warming a structure. Biomass boilers Scottish Borders must be hooked to existing electrical wiring, so buildings that have substandard electrical systems may need to spend money on upgrades before installation can take place.

Biomass boilers can represent a substantial investment. For a 5 bedroom house, for example, you could be looking at a cost of £16,000 or more. Smaller houses will cost less, but you are still probably looking at £10,000 or more.
This will depend on your location. It is easy to find a domestic installer in some areas, where it is nearly impossible in others. Once you find a professional installer, it is easy to have a system installed in your house and can usually be done in a day or two.
The primary benefit of using a biomass boiler is that, unlike coal or oil, biomass is a sustainable fuel source. It can also be fuelled with waste wood from your own property, rather than purchasing cords of firewood as fuel.
Biomass boilers are much larger than their oil or gas fired counterparts. Initial costs are much higher than with a gas or oil fired boiler, and fuel costs are comparable to the current price of gas.
Wood pellets are the preferred fuel for heating biomass boilers; however, you may also use other materials such as corn stalks, wood chips, or even cherry pits. For best results, you should burn only one type of material at a time.
Provided that you always follow the instructions provided by your installer and those that are printed in the owner’s manual, you should find that these units are quite simple to work with. As with other types of boilers, they do also require regular maintenance though.
