Biomass

Green Home Energy Solutions are one of the leading Biomass Boiler installers in Norfolk.

"Biomass" is a the term loosely used for the different types of wood used in wood-burning boilers and stoves. Common types of biomass used as a heating source are wood pellets, wood chip, or logs. Biomass boilers, are used in place of a regular gas, oil or electric boilers and are used for both heating and hot water.

The main type of Biomass boiler used in domestic systems is the wood-pellet type. A pellet store or silo houses an amount of pellets which is automatically fed into the boiler when required. The boiler burns the wood and the heat is transferred to water via a heat-exchanger, and this in turn is fed to a thermal store where it can be used for radiators, underfloor heating, domestic hot water etc.

Log Gasification

If you have your own supply of wood which can be cut to half-metre logs, it's possible to install a log boiler.

The fuel chamber accommodates enough logs to ensure that replenishment is only necessary once a day or twice on cold winter days.

Large supply of wood in the fuel chamber

A small gasification fire burns at the base of the wood stack in the fuel chamber. The air supply must be kept to a minimum to prevent uncontrolled gasification and burning of the wood stack in the fuel chamber. The electronic controls regulate the output of
the gasification fire via the primary airflow. This enables slow and controlled burning in a boiler with a large wood content as well as a
long combustion period. The wood gas in the fuel chamber is drawn downwards into a hot combustion chamber.

No electrical ignition

After closing the charging door, the wood fuel is ignited by the remaining embers from the last fire, without the need for paper or matches. This is both simpler and more effective than an electrical ignition system that requires fine kindling as pilot fuel.

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. Eligible installations receive quarterly payments for 7 years for domestic customer and 20 years for non-domestic customers.
