This Cheshire farm house has solid walls and is set in a very exposed location, off the mains gas grid. The owner was suffering increasingly high bills and was reliant on heating with oil and filtering water from a bore hole. He approached EnergyMyWay looking for a lower-cost, more sustainable heating and hot water solution, which resulted in the installation of a combi biomass boiler.
After reviewing the renewable energy options, a biomass boiler was selected because a high flow temperature was needed. Our Cheshire biomass boiler expert recommended a combi biomass boiler from Effecta, with a domestic hot water coil fitted into the buffer tank, removing the need for a separate hot water tank.
Mr Williams is planning on redeveloping the property so the biomass boiler has been housed in a wooden shed as a temporary solution.
