With oil and gas prices in a state of flux, increasing numbers of businesses, farmers and homeowners are looking for a secure, low-cost way to heat their premises. The answer is a Biomass Boiler from Solmatix.
Our wood and pellet burning Biomass Boilers offer a cost-effective way to massively reduce your heating bills.
Why it pays to go Biomass
Whether you are running a business, managing a farm or heating a home, there are three vital reasons why you should go Biomass:
- The cost of Biomass fuel is considerably less volatile than oil or gas, and unlike these dwindling fossil fuels, wood pellets are a renewable energy with a secure supply.
- Our Biomass boilers operate up to 93% efficiency and can massively out-perform oil or gas (a typical non-condensing fossil boiler may only be 70% efficient). So your biomass boiler delivers much more heat for every pound you spend on fuel.
Unlike oil, your Biomass boiler will pay for itself and isn’t it good to know you’re using a sustainable fuel, with minimal impact on the environment!
How Biomass works
Using your Biomass boiler couldn’t be more straightforward. It self-ignites, self-cleans and automatically adjusts its settings according to your heating requirements. All you need to do is empty the ashtray once a week.
Our Biomass boilers burn wood pellets, the most widely available form of biomass fuel. The pellets are usually stored in a silo or hopper, fed into the boiler at a pre-determined rate, and burned to release the heat energy that warms your business, farm or home. Simple!
Long-term fuel security
When it comes to fuel costs, one thing is certain. Fossil fuel reserves are dwindling, so oil and gas prices will rise. Of course, wood pellet costs will rise too, but viewed over the last 15 years, the cost of oil and gas has risen THREE TIMES HIGHER than wood pellets.
What is more, by taking out a fixed term (i.e.20 years) biomass fuel contract, you can future-proof your fuel costs in line with inflation.
