Household users have the choice between wood pellets and wood chips for domestic wood heating. Many large rural houses opt for wood chip systems as the fuel is cheaper, making it a more cost-effective domestic wood heating system. Pellets come into their own where space is limited (pellet boilers are smaller and the fuel more dense) and where the heat demand is relatively low.
The use of both wood chip and pellet boilers for domestic wood heating is increasing. We supply both forms of fuel to more than 50 homes, throughout the rural areas, but also in urban centres and market towns. Domestic wood heating is a source of renewable energy and a great alternative to oil or gas.
