Why Biofuel?

Home » Why Biofuel?

Biomass or woodfuelled heating can transform your home, and save you money.

Biofuel comes in all shapes and sizes, from the wood logs hissing and sparking on a campfire to plant based liquid fuel to methane gas. While the liquid and gas forms may come to revolutionise our transport systems it is the solid biofuel, known as biomass or woodfuel, that homeowners across Scotland are turning to in order to beat the winter blues.

Why is biomass heating becoming so popular in Scottish homes?

Since 2006 people have been changing their home heating system to biomass. For many the desire to live in a green home has been the main reason. However as oil and gas and LPG prices have risen year on year, the cost savings on annual fuel bills are become more significant.

And the Renewable Heat Incentive promises even greater financial benefits for homeowners who have biomass heating systems. Contact us to discuss these incentives…
