Look down through the last few entries and you will see I’ve said it before, but this time there has been an announcement that the Commercial RHI will be cut at the end of June. I hoped it wouldn’t be, but we have had it good for a long time now […]

Looking like a June reduction in Commercial RHI

I was Googling ‘biomass boilers’, which is what I do to relax on my days off, when I came across a blog called that appears pretty high on the first page. The subject of the article is “10 things your installer won’t tell you before you purchase a biomass boiler.” The […]

Biomass boilers are unreliable! Really? I’ve had a bit of car trouble lately myself. I took my car back to the dealership last week and had a word with the mechanic there. Told him the damn thing hadn’t been running well since I started putting paraffin in the tank instead […]

Putting the fab back into prefab
We can do most of the boilerhouse work off site at our workshop near Sparkford. This ETA boiler biomass ‘plug’ will be assembled, tested, then loaded onto a lorry for transport to the farm, meaning the least amount of time for us on site, which in turn means the minimum […]

Four individual boilers, or one big boiler on a district heating system? This is another question we get asked a lot by potential clients. We have done our own research and priced both options, as well as looking at the level of convenience from the standpoint of both installation and […]

Eta Pe-K Wood Pellet Boiler

Cotswold farm biomass
This Cotswold farm had a standard seven day turn around planned. They could give us three days clear between washing down and re-bedding, so we had to be well organised to complete the job within the time slot.   This installation is going to be fed by two powerhouses that […]
