Euroheat launch biomass boiler
Euroheat has launched an entry-level biomass boiler, providing an option for the more cost-conscious, modest home. The HDG R25 is a 25kW log boiler with a simple design meaning the price is kept down.
The R25 is soon to be Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) approved and reaches efficiencies of over 90%; like all boilers in Euroheat’s range. Where it differs is the hopper size, which is slightly reduced compared with other HDG boilers, this means more manual input is required as less logs can be loaded at any one time (compared with other brands of biomass boiler), however, it is still a sizeable fuel chamber.
When combined with an accumulator, which stores hot water, any excess energy generated is saved and released on demand. This is particularly useful in the summer months as just one boiler can heat domestic hot water for several days. Using an accumulator will also minimise reloading cycles.
With the RHI set to be launched later in the year and biomass options now available for a range of homes and budgets, building services installers everywhere should really consider including this technology in their offering.
