This North Yorkshire Farm is now benefitting from reduced heating costs and additional revenue into the business since switching from an oil burner to a biomass boiler.
The boiler, fuel store and 600L expansion vessel are housed in a purpose built room. The extensive property has all of its heating and domestic hot water needs met by a single Froling T4 110kW Wood Chip boiler – this is facilitated by a heat network.
The heat network connects the heat source (biomass boiler) to remote heat stores(buffer tanks) via pre-insulated underground pipe. A series of these pipes are connected to buildings, creating a network which allows the single Froling boiler to produce enough heat energy to supply central heating and domestic hot water to6 buildings across the site.
Switching from an oil burner to a woodchip boiler affords fuel savings of around2p/kWh.
