Save on Portobello pellet boiler installation costs
Pellet boilers Portobello are the heating systems of the future. In this era of green energy, pellet boilers are an excellent option. The pellets which serve as fuel, are made of natural sawdust and wood shavings that are compressed without the use of chemical binders. When the pellets are burned in the boiler, they cause no harm to the environment and the remaining ash can be used as a fertilizer.
When considering green energy, Portobello pellet boiler installations are a choice made by many environmentally conscious homeowners. The pellets are a renewable product and emit no carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. They are conveniently delivered to your home by truck and are clean and easy to handle. When the pellets are produced, no trees are cut down. The manufacturers use only sawdust and waste wood from timber processing companies. The Portobello pellet boiler companies in our database can handle virtually any installation project. They are licensed and insured and employ highly competent engineers to handle the installations.

There are many advantages to using pellet boilers, including:
While pellet boilers certainly do have their advantages, they also come with a unique set of disadvantages that homeowners should consider before they commit.
Average prices can vary depending on the size of the area that needs to be heated and the storage space necessary for the pellets. As technology improves, costs for Portobello pellet boilers are expected to decrease. Transportation costs for the pellets can affect the final price you pay for the product and the location of your home can also impact installation costs.
Believe it or not, many of today’s pellet boilers are just as efficient as traditional boilers. In fact, depending on the type of pellets you use, you may be eligible for incentives for using renewable energy sources. When you choose the right size boiler and the right type of fuel, it’s possible to heat your home and your water supply for less than traditional municipality-provided fuels. Part of maintaining this high efficiency, though, is proper maintenance, and this can become time-consuming when it comes to pellet boilers.
Let’s face it. Owning a home is expensive nowadays, especially where the various forms of maintenance are concerned. This often results in homeowners either trying to shop around for the cheapest prices or even going as far as attempting to install a pellet boiler unit themselves. However, when a pellet boiler is not installed by an accredited and experienced Portobello engineer, you will not only lose your warranty; if it malfunctions and causes injury to you or a family member or damage occurs to your property as a result thereof, your homeowner’s insurance policy will most likely not cover these expenses.

Like their name suggests, pellet boilers burn wooden pellets that are made up of wood waste like sawdust, bark and wood chips. They are light weight and easy to load into a hopper that automatically drops them into the boiler when needed.
Wood pellet boilers, while not as expensive as some of the other options, may still set you back about £8-10,000. This will vary with depending on the size of your home and the amount of coverage that you need.
The average lifespan of a pellet boiler is 15-20 years, but this can vary depending on the amount of maintenance that is performed during its life. A poorly maintained boiler can break down beyond repair in less than 5 years.
Pellet boilers burn cleanly and more efficiently than other wood-burning boilers. The only real problem is fuel storage, because wood pellets are so much bulkier than liquid fuels like oil or gas.
If you are unsure of where to purchase the next round of fuel for your pellet boiler, contact the supplier of your boiler. They will be more than willing to let you know where it can be bought.
Pellets are available in a variety of materials, but the most common is hardwood. Any wood that would normally be used in a wood-burning stove can be made into pellets, which burn more evenly and therefore more efficiently than split logs. Pellets may also be made of biomass, such as bamboo or even sugar cane. Corn pellets produce the same heat as wood and are more renewable, but they produce far more ash, which is why homeowners tend to avoid them despite their overall low cost when compared to other materials.
There are two things to consider when it comes to pellet storage: moisture and combustion. Pellets will only burn properly if they’re kept perfectly dry, and they must be kept away from any source of extreme heat, spark, or open flame since they will catch fire very easily. Most homeowners tend to keep them in stacks in their basements, or for very large properties, in a smaller version of a farm silo outdoors.
The time required to install and set up a pellet based boiler will depend on where it is being installed and whether it is replacing an existing unit or not. Our network of qualified installers will be able to provide you with a more accurate timeframe after inspecting your property.
Having your boiler professionally installed will ensure that it serves you for many years to come, while also keeping your warranty intact. Pellet fired boilers that are not professionally installed will not normally be provided with a warranty from the manufacturer.
