Growing up in a house full of girls, I unofficially took on the role as my father's only son. So when the time came to fix a leaky sink or change the oil in the family car, it was me that stood by my father's side. Thanks to him and everything he taught me, I am now able to take care of myself and my children in a way that not everyone can. I have tried over the years to engage my own daughter in the same way my father engaged me, but she's currently more interested in playing with dolls than fixing potholes. After my father passed away last year, I vowed to find a way to pass on everything he taught me, this blog is my way of keeping that promise. I truly hope that you learn as much as I have over the years.
Biomass heating can be a great solution to reduce the heating costs for your home. It can also be a solution to provide your home with hot water. The biomass boilers that are available today can be connected to central HVAC, radiant heating and potable water for your home. These systems cost a lot less than gas or electricity, and will need fewer repairs. If you are thinking about a new heating system for your home, here are four benefits that you will get from using biomass energy for heating:
1. Costs That Are Much Lower Than Other Utilities
Biomass is an affordable energy that is made from organic waste from forestry and agricultural industries. It is a completely renewable energy resource, which fuel price fluctuations will have little effect on you heating costs. Many systems will even give you the option to use different fuel materials, such as corn, wood chips and even firewood that you have available on your property.
2. Simple Systems With Few Repair Needs
These systems are also very simple because it is based on the basic principle of using fire to heat water. This means that there are very few parts that will need repairs, and if you do need to replace something like a fan or switch, the parts are very affordable. The repair costs for a biomass system will be much less than other conventional systems.
3. Use For Heating And Potable Hot Water For Your Home
If you want to have a more complete energy solution for your home, you can also use your biomass boiler for potable hot water. You will be able to use your system year round for all the hot water of your home, and not need any utility services for your heating or hot water needs. This is something that can give you further energy savings from the heating system you have installed, which is why many people choose these systems to replace hot water heaters as well.
4. Long Term Heating Solution For Your Home
Biomass heating is also a long term heating solution for your home. These types of boilers have many interchangeable parts, making it likely that you will never have to replace the whole boiler itself. You can also expand these systems for heating on additions, shops, and basement finishing projects by just adding an extra pump. With conventional systems, you may have to replace an entire system to expand service to other areas of your home.
These are some of the benefits that you will get with biomass boilers for heating air and hot water in your home. If you want to have one of these systems installed, contact an HVAC contractor, such as Custom Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, and ask them about biomass solutions for your heating needs.
