Bio-energy: firewood for domestic heating

Published on : 24 June 20202 min reading time

Biomass or bio-energy heating is based on the use of wood to heat a home. To do this, we create combustion. Wood has many heating benefits and promotes a green environment. It can be used for many applications. For the extraction of firewood, there is a forest exploitation which is, however, controlled.

The different forms of wood heating

When wood is used to heat a home, it can take many forms, including logs, pellets, shredded wood, etc. Noting is that domestic heating accounts for nearly 70% of solid biomass production. The wood stock is divided between collective, industrial and tertiary heating. Concerning domestic heating, in particular, we note mainly forest chips and cereal biomass. Pellets can be used as a replacement for wood chips to ensure wood heating. Biomass is now offered by several energy suppliers. It has been launched for some years now to meet environmental and energy performance needs.

The frying pan to install

Among the different wood heating technologies, there is the stove to install. This has several advantages. First, we note its ease of installation and use. This heating method is the most popular system. Indeed, it adapts to several styles of decoration. The latest models of the stove to be installed are perfectly integrated into the contemporary atmosphere to allow for an innovative design. In addition, customers have the choice between several types of materials: cast iron, steel… The stove is ideal for heating a room in a house, but some ranges allow the sharing of hot air in the adjacent rooms. The stove to be installed is often equipped with a glass door.

Log boilers

Log boilers are alternatives to wood stoves. The innovation of these devices appeared especially after the gradual increase in the cost of fossil fuels and electricity. Boilers are highly efficient. Indeed, they integrate an automated loading functionality. In addition, these systems provide real comfort in use, similar to gas or oil boilers. In terms of design, wood-fired boilers can be used in both single-family homes and collective buildings. In addition, they are subject to quality standards that are technically and ecologically sound. Noting also log or wood boilers increase in efficiency and autonomy.
