Low cost wood pellets typically cost around 4.5 p to produce 1 kw of heat.
Compare this to Oil 6.5 -8p or electric 14p!!
The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel.
There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the fuel, but as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than the emissions from fossil fuels.
We will provide you with the contact details for 4 local suppliers or if you prefer we can arrange for one to begin your supply. They will typically need to make 3 -4 deposits a year. The pellets will be stored in your hopper which we supply free of charge. The Boiler will draw the pellets from the hopper automatically.
