Biomass Heat

Why Biomass Heat

There are some very good reasons why now is a very good time to install a biomass

boiler from Asgard Biomass:


  • Biomass heat is significantly cheaper than oil, LPG, or electricity… and increasingly better value than gas.
  • Quarterly cash payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme are available at up to 8.8p per kWh guaranteed for 20 years.
  • Payback on investment can take as little as 4 years, return on investment as high as 25%.
  • Better financial return than other renewable technologies.
  • Well proven technology; durable reliable and efficient.
  • The boilers supplied by Asgard Biomass are highly efficient, more efficient than fossil fuel boilers, this means that the valuable resource is fully utilised.
  • Wood chip can deliver heat at between 2-3p/kWh, wood pellets at around 4p/kWh versus oil or LPG at 6-7p/kWh and electricity at 10p+ /kWh.
  • Those able to produce chip from their own woodlands or miscanthus will see even greater savings, fuel cost can be around 1 – 2p/kWh.
  • Previously underutilized woodlands can now provide a very attractive cash income.
  • There are a number of reputable finance companies working in the sector that can offer competitive rates.
  • Several buildings can be heated by a single biomass boiler installation thus reducing the maintenance and servicing costs.
  • Biomass heat is the most effective way of obtaining CO2 reductions.
  • Positive press; biomass heating is a good message.
  • The most effective way to achieve building regulations codes during building or refurbishment projects.
  • Fossil fuel will continue to increase in price at a faster rate than biomass.
  • With good quality “dry” fuel the biomass boilers supplied by Asgard Biomass are virtually smokeless.
  • Fully automated technology, and very easy to use
