Finding The Right Heating System For You

Looking for a new heating system but feeling a little overwhelmed with the choices? You have come to the right place!

A conventional gas boiler is the most common heating system you will find if you’re moving into an older home, but as time progresses so do alternative heating solutions.

Renewable heating solutions are becoming much more readily available and becoming a popular choice for people to purchase to make an eco-conscious decision.

Biomass boiler

Biomass boilers are a great alternative for a gas or oil boiler if you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly solution providing you with the same results. Investing in a biomass boiler would decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 9.5 tons and is carbon neutral since the carbon emissions are re-absorbed by plants.

Biomass boilers need a constant refill of wood, these can be collected by yourself and don’t always have to be delivered, this reduces travel emissions, once again helping out the environment making a positive impact.

While biomass boilers come with a larger installation price and need a bigger space for them to be stored, after being fitted they require little to no maintenance and also qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) meaning you could potentially see a decrease in the installation fee if you comply with the requirements.

Air Source Heat Pump

Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) are often held with a myth that they aren’t able to provide enough heat and water to supply everyone in the home… first, let’s debunk this myth and clarify that ASHPs can reach the full potential required to heat a whole home.

In regards to biomass boilers, ASHPs work the same, they come with a hefty installation fee, but after that, the outgoings are very minimal and only require a cost for an annual service. ASHPs also come with the same benefits of being eligible for the RHI and are effective throughout summer and winter and work in temperatures as low as -15oc.

ASHPs come with a long lifespan and work perfectly alongside solar energy and underfloor heating.
