Blackmuir House

Domestic Biomass Installation

Reason for Switching to Biomass

The client lives in a 5 bedroom house with a very old in-efficient oil boiler. The boiler was expensive to run and the house wasn't warm enough in the winter. Instead of upgrading with oil, the client decided to look at renewable options, opting for pellet biomass.

The Solution

R&I Cruden supplied and installed a fully automatic 25kW Biotech wood pellet boiler to provide heating and hot water. The boiler and 5 tonne fuel store were built in a containerised unit which arrived to site fully fitted out and ready to go. The system is connected to house with highly insulated underground pipe.

The Result

  • Fuel cost saving up to 40%
  • Warm house all year round
