Heating costs can be an expensive portion of your utility bills. If you are looking for a way to get these costs under control, you may want to consider biomass energy as a fuel source. These are stoves, boilers and furnaces that use firewood and other organic materials to heat your home. Here are some of the biomass heating solutions you may want to consider for a more economical heating system:
1. Central Stoves For A Minimal Heating System
If you have ever had a wood burning stove, you know that it can be a great way to heat your home. There are also stoves available that use pellet fuel for heating. These stoves plug into an outlet to power a fan and element that burns the biomass fuel. They can distribute the heat in small, open space. This is a great solution for small cabins and homes with open floor plans that only need a minimal amount of security.
2. Biomass Furnaces To Connect To Central Ductwork
Biomass furnaces can be another option for homes with HVAC ductwork. These furnaces can easily be adapted to existing ductwork to give your home a central HVAC solution. It is a good solution for homes that do not have radiant heating or if you want to have a central air conditioning solution without radiators or costly in floor heating. The furnaces will also be a little less costly than a boiler, but you will need to pay more if you need to have new ductwork installed in your home.
3. Biomass Boilers For Radiant Heating And Hot Water
Biomass boilers can be a great way to heat your home and get hot water. There are a couple of different types of boilers. These can be outdoor systems that can burn almost any type of waste materials and firewood, which can be great for large rural properties with a lot of wood available. Indoor systems can also use different types of fuels like firewood, but they can also use pellet materials that can be delivered to your home. If you do not have firewood or organic waste available, a pellet system will be your best choice for a biomass system.
Biomass systems can be a great way to heat your home and control costs. If you are ready to have new heating with biomass, contact an HVAC contractor and talk with them about some of these solutions for the heating needs of your home.
