A huge part of your home’s carbon footprint comes from the energy used to heat it. The average home can reduce its carbon footprint by 6 tonnes when switching from oil to wood pellets. And if you are keen to maximise your carbon savings then biomass is the right option.
For more than a decade, there has been an increase in the use of biomass fuel for heating homes. Converting from gas to biomass gives an impressive 86% reduction in carbon emissions.
Wood-fuelled heating systems also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers.
With the state of global energy reserves being somewhat questionable for the coming generation, many people are looking for ways to be less reliant on conventional energy supplies in the future. Biomass fuels are a way to gain that independence.
Biomass fuel is a sustainable way of heating your home because it is not only renewable but it also is carbon neutral or carbon-lean. This is because the carbon that it releases into the atmosphere when it is burnt is part of today’s natural carbon cycle.
In contrast, the carbon released by fossil fuels, like oil, was stored millions of years ago. It is this release of ancient carbon into our atmosphere today is what is causing the unbalancing of the earth’s system.
