How much can I save on energy bills using Biomass Fuel?

How much can I save on energy bills using Biomass Fuel?

By on Sep 10, 2019 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Biomass fuel has become increasingly popular with households aiming to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their energy bills. Here at P.H Winterton and Son, we develop a high-quality supply of wood chip biomass fuel that can provide warmth to a single room or even power a central heating system plus hot water boilers. According to the Energy Saving Trust using a wood-fuelled biomass boiler could save you an incredible £960 a year compared to an older electric heating system. Three Reasons to Use Biomass Fuel Here are three reasons to use a biomass heating system – 1. The price of wood varies considerably but long term this is a more affordable heating solution. 2. Using a wood boiler system could lead to financial support from the Government-led Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) scheme. 3. Carbon dioxide emitted from wood pellets when they are burning is the same amount absorbed over all the time the plant was growing. Sourcing your fuel from a local supplier such as P.H Winterton and Son will ensure carbon emissions are kept as low as possible plus they are still much lower than from fossil fuels. Biomass Fuel Saves the Environment Carbon dioxide emissions are significantly reduced when using a wood-fuelled boiler instead of solid coal-fired system. According to the Energy Saving Trust, this can add up to an incredible 14.3 tonnes of emissions per year! P.H Winterton and Son are also part of the UK government’s approved Biomass Supplier List, which was introduced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in April 2014. This is a comprehensive list of wood fuel that’s been proven to meet requirements of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. This allows RHI participants to demonstrate to Ofgem that the fuel they are using in their biomass boilers meets the RHI sustainability criteria required to claim savings as part of the scheme.
