They supply wood chip, wood pellet and log boilers. Which fuel is the most suitable for you will depend on various factors including local availability, delivery access, space available and project budget. Advising you on fuel suppliers and fuel types is part of the standard design process available from ourselves and our Registered Installation Partners.
Probably the single, most important fuel consideration is quality. Fuel with a higher water content will reduce the efficiency of a boiler significantly and, if you ignore the guidelines provided, will potentially reduce its lifespan. That is why Chip Chip are leading the market development for force dried premium wood chip to ensure the best boiler performance.
Smaller commercial and domestic projects are serviced through the Hargassner Registered Installation Partners.
Registered Installation partners are located throughout the whole of the UK thereby offering a regional and local service. Each Registered Installation Partner has received specialist training from Wood Energy Ltd on Hargassner and Binder boilers and system design and possess a series of standard design layouts that Wood Energy Ltd has developed over many years. They also have access to the Wood Energy technical engineering department for complex design support where required ensuring that each project is comprehensively designed.
Suitable storage is integral to the success of any biomass heating project. You need to be able to store a sufficient quantity of fuel in a place that is easily accessible for deliveries. Keeping the fuel dry is critical for both the efficiency and longevity of the boiler and so it is important to consider the whole transfer process, from lorry to store and then on to feed the boiler. Combustible fuels always require consideration and, to avoid over-exposure to any build-up of naturally occurring gas, it is good practice to control access to the fuel store and ensure there is adequate ventilation.
