Biomass Boilers

What is Biomass?

The concept of using biomass as a source of heat goes right back to the dawn of mankind, when humans lived in caves. Things have come on a bit since then.

Biomass generally refers to non-fossil fuels, as such biomass is included under the "renewable energy" umbrella and this means that Biomass boilers are eligible for the Government's RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme.

 As of 1st July 2015 the RHI  pays 7.14p for every kilowatt of heat generated in a domestic property for the next  7 years and up to and 5.10p for every kilowatt generated in a non-domestic property for the next 20 years.  

The Belmont Group can supply and install boilers using wood based biomass fuels, this can be logs, chips or pellets. The wood used to produce the fuel for these boilers can be grown in the UK, ensuring that supply and price are not subject to external market forces. The trees are grown specifically to meet demand, making this a sustainable and carbon neutral fuel.

The boilers used to burn these fuels are often designed to last 20-30 years, using state of the art technology they can connect to the internet to allow users to monitor and control the boiler from anywhere, and manufactures and installers carry out diagnostics and fault finding remotely.

The RHI has been developed by the Government to encourage us all to generate energy from renewable sources, so the more we generate, the greater the payments we receive.
