Features & Benefits

Why Biomass?

Types of Biomass
Efficiency & Savings
  • Biomass boilers are highly efficient (over 90%)
  • With a a high temperature output, biomass boilers are deal for installing into older properties with low insulation levels.
  • Biomass fuel is 100% sustainable and 98% carbon neutral
  • Great investment opportunity thanks to government incentives such as the RHI
  • Produce your own fuel (wood chips & logs)
  • Less expensive than a ground source heating system with less disruption
Wood biomass boilers come in three main classifications;

  • Wood pellet biomass boiler
  • Fuelled by manufactured cylindrical pressed wood pellets.
  • Fully automatic, ideal for smaller systems and domestic sector
  • Biomass boilers are over 90% efficient
  • Wood is a completely natural & contains carbon neutral fuel which has little impact on the environment.
  • The only environmental impact comes from the transport and processing of the biomass fuel
  • A biomass boiler will also save up to 70% on heating costs, depending on the fuel it is replacing
  • The best savings will be for those of us who are not connected to mains gas
  • A biomass boiler will earn its owner an income from the renewable heat incentive (RHI)
No mess, no fuss

Low Maintenance

Biomass heating systems from Safe & Protect require very little maintenance. The wood pellet biomass boilers are self cleaning and require only the ash pan to be emptied every 3 months.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

About The RHI


The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies among householders, communities and businesses through the provision of financial incentives.

The UK Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources. The Renewable Heat Incentive is the first of its kind in the world.
