Any heating project, whether it’s using fossil fuels or renewables, needs to be viewed over a different timescale from other investments. After all, it’s usually a critical component in any business – underpinning almost all other activities and processes. Added to this argument is the 20-year horizon of the Renewable Heat Incentive – if you’re making an investment based on a return over this period, surely you’d want the installation to still deliver for you in year 20?
All our commissions are approached with the intention of maximising cost savings and RHI income over the whole life of a project. This is done by using best practice design, high quality materials and finishes, and with a craftsman’s eye for the details that often make all the difference between a successful installation and years of headaches. We fully appreciate that this may not deliver the lowest capital cost on day one, but if you’re making the considerable investment associated with a wood-fired boiler project, it’s an approach that will deliver the best results over the long term.
It’s vital to consider the local fuel supply chain from the outset of any wood-fired boiler project – you’ll only purchase one boiler, but will be buying fuel for decades. Every installation must take into account the type of fuel available, its particle size, moisture content and other physical characteristics, as well as the means of delivery. We have particular expertise in this area and will ensure that every project develops with full knowledge and consideration of the fuels available locally on a sustainable basis.
