Wood-fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers or to provide district heating.
A stove burns logs or pellets to heat a single room – and may be fitted with a back boiler to provide water heating as well. A boiler burns logs, pellets or chips, and is either connected to a central heating and hot water system or to a district heating system supplying heat and hot water to a network of buildings through a series of heat mains. One co-operative in the Energy4All family owns and operates a district heating system which has boilers burning locally sourced and sustainable wood chip.
