Biomass can save your business money, generate income and reduce your carbon footprint. If you would like to reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and protect your home or business from the financial impact of rising energy prices then biomass is the ideal solution.
Receive an income for each kWh of heat your biomass boiler produces under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme
Biomass boilers burn wood pellets, chips or logs, converting up to 95% of the energy produced into usable heat.
Unlimited access to our aftercare service with maintenance packages to keep your system running efficiently.
Protect your business from the financial impact of rising energy prices with a biomass heating solution.
From new boiler installations to general repairs and maintenance, our plumbing team consistently deliver work of outstanding quality.
Three service and maintenance packages, designed to enable you to choose the level of support you require within your budget.
Air source heat pumps are an efficient heat source, using three times less energy than conventional heating sources.
CHP generates electricity whilst also capturing usable heat that is produced in this process.
Our group of experts are here to help you through the jungle of information about the use of biomass heating solutions, advising you on the appropriate renewable technology.

Here are some popular questions we are asked:
Biomass heating systems usually require an annual service visit only. Even when burning the most difficult of materials they can operate unattended for weeks, but weekly inspection visits are required to carry out a visual inspection of the boiler and fuel feed system and to empty the ashbin. If the boiler is not fitted with automatic flue cleaning then regular cleaning of the flue tubes may be required using a flue brush.
Yes but summer hot water requirement are usually very small in relation to the size of the boiler, often less than the minimum output of the boiler. During times of the year when the heating is not in use the use of a buffer tank allows the boiler to be operated for short periods to charge the tank. Hot water is then drawn from the buffer vessel as required to meet the load.
If correctly designed and installed, the majority of boilers can operate for up to 1 week minimum at a time without manual intervention.
Depending on the size of your installation, fuel can be supplied as logs or in bags of pellets or delivered by lorry. If delivered by lorry, woodchips and pellets can be tipped or blown from the delivery vehicle directly into the fuel store.
Fuel can be stored in any dry shed or building. Most automatically fed boilers require a fuel silo attached to the boiler house, this silo needs to be accessible to a delivery vehicle. If the delivery is made by lorry, the vehicle will need to tip into the silo or fuel will need to be blown into the silo. Wood pellets can be blown up to 20m from the delivery vehicle. In some cases, fuel can be extracted from the silo and delivered to the boiler by a vacuum conveying system, meaning the silo does not need to be directly next to the boiler.
While Planning Permission is not required for a boiler, it may be required for a boiler house, fuel silo and flue (chimney). It may also be required for any aspect of an installation where historic buildings are involved or in sensitive locations. If there is likely to be an increase in the number of large vehicle movements for fuel delivery, or fuel delivery is likely to be noisy, eg when blowing woodchips, Planning Permission may be required.
A well designed and operated biomass boiler burning fuel within the specification of the boiler should not produce any smoke, but black smoke may be produced if the fuel is too wet for the boiler.
