Wood Pellet Boiler Information

The pellet boiler on this page descript is used as a  water boiler for space heating and domestic hot water applications. Designed for combustion of wood pellet with the installed pellet burner (picture).  Wood pellets are a renewable, environmentally friendly and locally produced fuel. Irish  8mm wood pellets are made by Balcas in Enniskillen N.Ireland and are now widely available in Ireland in bulk or bags.

Boilers with output of up to 20 kW can be used to supply hot water to the central heating system and supply domestic hot water for private homes of up to *200qm area and buildings like B&B holidays-homes, workshops, etc. (*depending on the heating system installed and insulation value of the building)  

Boilers with output from 35 to 60kW are suitable for heating areas of up to *700qm i.e. shops, schools, apartment houses etc.
For commercial applications we also can provide larger bio-fuel burning units, all dimensions and features of those systems are individually proposed to the customer.
