WOOD GASIFICATION BOILERS
If you have your own seasoned timber with low moisture, then what better, more efficient way to put it to good use than for heating your home.Wood gasification boilers are a combination of attractive design, advanced technology, and renewable heating.
How wood gasification works?
Simply put the wood is burned and the gases which are created are heated again (secondary combustion) to create energy to heat the boiler. See a more detailed description in our technologies explained section.
What size boiler?
In order to calculate the correct size of the boiler for your home, you must take account of several factors, including:
All of these combined to calculate the heat loss of the dwelling, which gives you the kilowatts of the boiler.
However, an old simple rule of thumb may help to give an idea. It takes 50 watts to heat every square metre of a domestic building, and add 3 kilowatts for domestic water. (This is based on the assumption of good insulation).
