You can use a boiler that runs on biomass, in order to heat your Suffolk home in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.
You may have heard about biomass, but we’re here to give you a better idea of what it’s all about. First of all, you may be wondering what the term biomass really means. It’s a term that’s applied to anything that has recently been living. When we’re talking about heating, this is applicable because we generally use fuel sources that are associated with trees – that usually means logs, wood pellets, or small chips.
Some home owners do choose to use other materials, where they have a plentiful supply. As an example, straw can also be used as a fuel source, helping to heat your home.
So, how is this good for the environment? The key here is that trees extract carbon from the atmosphere when they grow. As you burn the resulting wood, that carbon is released into the atmosphere again. This isn’t the part of the process that makes using biomass inherently green.
What matters is that those trees should be replaced (through planting), enabling the entire cycle to begin again. That keeps the system in balance, meaning that this is an environmentally friendly approach to heating your Suffolk home.
A biomass boiler isn’t just used to heat your home. You can also use it to provide a source of hot water, meaning that it can act as a complete replacement for a gas boiler. As long as you have plenty of space to store the fuel, this could be an excellent solution for your own home.
