 New biomass heating 

We have strengthened our green credentials with the installation of an Austrian designed 60 kW wood-burning boiler.

The new biomass system runs off sustainably sourced low carbon wood pellets. These warm a 1,500l tank which in turn transfers heat via underground pipes to the existing heating and hot water system. It means that all the hot water and heating used in the main house now comes from renewable sources of fuel; in addition, during daylight hours, solar panels produce up to 4 kW of electricity (with an average annual output of at least 3,750 kW per annum) and via a link to the house means that all the electricity used by the business to run utilities and domestic machines during the day is generated by the sun.

Local company SunGift Energy from Exeter were used once again to install the new boiler after fitting the solar panels in May 2011.
