When looking to upgrade their old electric heating system, Mr & Mrs Cameron spoke to local heating experts Korrie Renewables.
A new wet central heating system and a pellet biomass boiler was recommended because this will provide affordable heating and hot water with very low carbon emissions. To save valuable space in the property, the external model was selected.
The Trianco Greenflame is a great heating product for the domestic market with a wide range of models and accessories available. Containing a generous 100kg fuel store, the boiler only requires a weekly fill of pellets. It have been expertly designed as a simple yet effective solution with extremely low maintenance requirements. As well as this, the ash bin in the boiler only requires emptied once a week.
This biomass system also has the benefit of various additions such as a Combi Pod to provide hot water on demand and removing the need for a hot water cylinder. There is also a wide range of fuel storage options ranging from an addition 200kg hopper to a large 5 ton store which allow bulk deliveries of pellets.
Domestic Biomass System
Mr & Mrs Cameron - Case Study
The biggest advantage of converting to biomass is the high fuel cost savings and generous income available from the Government Renewable Heat Incentive. By changing to pellets, Mr & Mrs Cameron are looking to save up to £1,000 a year on their fuel costs alone. The available RHI income is worked out using a deemed calculation, which asseses the energy requirements to heat your home and hot water per annum. This figure is stated on a required Energy Performance Certificate. Mr & Mrs Cameron can expect an annual income of around £2,200. This means that the biomass system will pay for itself in under five years. When you consider the RHI scheme runs for 7 years, the Cameron's can look forward to recieving an additional financial payback for their investment.
