Log boilers become less practical if the system design requires regular refuelling, a correctly sized log boiler in average winter conditions will be ignited and fuelled once per day. In colder periods a second operation may be required.
When choosing a log boiler it is the size of the fuelling chamber not the output in KW that is the most dominating factor in choosing the correct boiler. At SP Heating Services we will help chose the correct boiler for your needs.
During combustion more energy will be produced than is required at that time, this excess heated water is transferred to a accumulator, this heated water can be stored for long periods of time until it is used for heating or hot water requirements.
Wood burning boilers, in common with all wood biomass fuels burn most efficiently and cleanly when burned hot and fast.
