Becoming much more popular in Bideford in recent times, both domestic and commercial biomass boilers are being promoted to satisfy the ever rising demand for renewable energy. Working in a much similar way to traditional gas and oil fired boilers, bio-mass boilers have much lower carbon emissions because they are fuelled by pellets made from eco-friendly plant and wood waste. Bio-mass boilers are bigger and more pricey than your everyday combi boiler, but their running costs compare well with carbon based fuels, and are unquestionably a lot cheaper for heating water than electricity (roughly one third of the cost). The pellets that bio-mass boilers are fuelled with are manufactured from readily available waste products such as chipped forestry waste, sawdust, food waste, replaceable wood and agricultural crop waste.
