What is a wood pellet boiler?

Wood pellet boilers are a safe, convenient and environmentally friendly way of using wood to heat your home.

Our wood pellet boilers are fully automatic and perform more like an oil or gas boiler, using advanced controls which regulate the amount of fuel being delivered to the burner to match a home’s heat demand. Wood pellets are fed into the burner via an ‘auger’ connected to a storage hopper.

The boiler auger feeds wood pellets directly into the burner where they are ignited, and the heat generated is automatically controlled by the feed rate of pellets. A fan in the boiler propels hot gas into the boiler’s primary heat exchanger. The heat energy is then transferred to the central heating system before being circulated around the house through either radiators and/or underfloor heating.
