Over 200 homes in Yorkshire and Humber have woodfuel boilers installed

13th Jan 2011

New figures from the Forestry Commission and Treeworld show that a substantial number of households in the north west use woodfuel boilers.

With over 200 installations in the area, more households in the UK could be tempted to follow by example and opt for low carbon central heating systems.

Consumers may also be encouraged to make the switch in light of the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which will come into force this June.

The RHI will provide financial support to anyone installing types of renewable heating, such as air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and biomass heaters, in their home, community or workplace.

The Forestry Commission fully supports the development of biomass power generation and woodfuel heating systems. According to the organisation, woodfuel can be cheaper than fossil fuels when replacing electric, LPG, coal or heating oil.
