Citigas Nottingham are experienced domestic and commercial biomass installers – our HETAS registration means that we can install a range of biomass boilers, biomass room heaters and biomass stoves.
Biomass boilers offer an environmentally sound heating solution.
Burning biomass, such as wood pellets, wood chip or logs, emits the same amount of carbon dioxide as has absorbed whilst the plant(s) were growing. Therefore, biomass is classed as carbon neutral energy and an excellent renewable investment.
Biomass boilers burn biomass fuels and efficiently extract energy to provide heating and hot water. They can also be more cost effective and efficient than fossil fuel boilers such as oil. If you currently have an oil boilers then you might wish to consider switching to a biomass boiler.
What is biomass?
Biomass is a type of fuel that produces energy by burning plant and animal matter such as trees, animal by-products, and general waste products.
Wood remains the most commonly used biomass fuel, and is used to power boilers that typically convert the energy into heat for water and space heating.
What are the benefits of biomass?
In terms of both installation and running costs, biomass has the lowest capital cost of all renewable energy technologies. Wood fuel is also a carbon neutral resource and can make a significant contribution to meeting the UK’s commitment to reducing CO2 emissions.
A biomass boiler compared to an oil boiler can reduce your carbon footprint by around 800%.
Is Biomass suitable for me?
Biomass is a very flexible renewable fuel and is suitable for most applications where hot water and space heating is required. Biomass can provide cost effective heating solutions for homes, commercial premises likes offices and factories as well as educational establishments such as schools, colleges and universities.
Citigas can install, service and repair most biomass boilers and heaters, including:
