As we are all aware, fossil fuel prices are unpredictable. With countries demanding more and more power, the use of fossil fuels is only going to increase along with the price. With the environmental impact of increased CO2 it is becoming more and more important to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we use by using alternative fuel.
Wood boilers work by using large water cylinder usually known as accumulators. The boilers are set to run and burn a full chamber of wood that may burn for up for 5 hours, heating the large cylinders. The cylinders are wrapped in a highly insulated liner meaning they only lose 1 degree every 24 hours. With this thermal efficiency, the boiler may only be required to run once a week in the summer.
