What maintenance does a biomass boiler require?

Rhodri Andrews

Fossil fuelled boilers usually require an annual maintenance visit only, some biomass boilers require more attention. Biomass boilers burning even the most difficult of materials can operate unattended, but weekly or monthly inspection visits are required to carry out a visual inspection of the boiler and fuel feed system, to check the lubrication of bearings and to empty the ashbin. If the boiler is not fitted with automatic flue cleaning, regular cleaning of the flue tubes is required using a flue brush.

Modern pellet boilers from brands such Okofen have been designed to require minimum maintenance. Requiring emptying the ash once every six months which means an easier heating system to manage for you and your home.
