What is Biofuel?

Essex biofuel boiler costs

Biofuel, also known as biodiesel, is a liquid which is made from vegetable or plant-based oil. A few plants that can be used to make biodiesel include soybean, mustard seed, palm, algae, coconut, corn, and sunflower. Leftover vegetable oil from deep fryers can also be filtered and then used to make biodiesel fuel. After adding alcohol and lye to the extracted oil, the fuel can then be used to power diesel engines or Essex biofuel boilers. No modifications are needed in order to start burning this fuel, as it is compatible with any unit that uses diesel petrol.

The Differences between Biomass and Biofuel

the difference between biomass and biofuel

Biomass and biofuel boilers share one common similarity - they’re designed to operate on renewable and/or sustainable resources rather than fossil fuels. Whereas biomass is a solid that must be burned inside the stove portion of a boiler to produce heat, biofuel is delivered to your home already refined into fuel form. The most common type of biofuel available today is biodiesel, which taken from plants rather than from the fossil fuels in the ground - just like biomass. However, because these materials have been processed and refined into a fuel, they’re easier to deliver, obtain, and control - and they work with most oil- or gas-fired boiler systems after a few adjustments.

Is Biofuel Energy-Efficient?

Biodiesel fuel is surprisingly energy efficient when used to heat a home. Those who are already using this fuel report that rooms tend to stay warmer than they would if using wood or gas heat. The type of plant matter used to make biodiesel can play a role in how much heat it produces. Biofuel made from algae tends to be warmer than fuel made from corn or sugar cane. Of course, the efficiency of biofuel boilers Essex largely depends on how well the home is insulated and the amount of space being heated among other things.

Benefits of Biofuel Boilers:

There are a number of benefits to using biofuel boilers. All Essex consumers can enjoy some of the advantages which include:

  • Renewable fuel source that does not deplete the current supply of fossil fuel
  • Does not release any harmful toxins into the air when burned
  • Lets off fewer emissions than other types of fuel, which lowers an individual’s carbon footprint
  • Fewer odours are noticed when burning this fuel as compared to others
  • Safer to store than regular diesel fuel since it has a very high flash point and is less likely to self-combust
  • Lubricates the engine and other moving parts better, thereby helping them to last longer

Biofuel is an excellent choice for heating, as it can be used in a variety of different heat sources. A few that are very compatible with this fuel include fireplaces, space heaters and generators.

Disadvantages of Biofuel Boilers

Although there are many advantages to using biofuel boilers, some disadvantages should also be considered:

  • These systems are often larger than regular boiler systems, meaning that more space is needed to install them properly. Additional space would also be required to store the fuel for it.
  • They tend to be more expensive to install than other types of boilers. However, there may sometimes be rebate schemes or systems available to help recover some of the costs.
  • Biofuel must remain dry, otherwise it will not burn efficiently.
  • A little more effort is required to use these units because they need to be continually supplied with fuel.

Considerations:

Essex biofuel boiler installation

While there are a number of benefits to Essex biofuel boilers, they are not without some considerations. This fuel is sometimes in short supply based on current market demands. The price of biodiesel fuel also fluctuates a great deal based upon the availability of the ingredients used to make it. Some people fear that too much corn could be used to make biofuel, thereby creating food shortages in the process. That’s likely to change as science discovers more and more ways to use different types of plants to create biodiesel fuel for heating and transportation.

Biofuel Boiler Costs

Biofuel boilers Essex can vary a great deal in price from one home to the next. The biggest factor that influences the cost is the size of the unit that’s being installed. If modifications need to be made to an existing structure, this could drive up the price of installation as well. The condition and location of existing wiring can also play a role since repairs might be needed before installation takes place. If local building codes require certain safety precautions to be taken, this could ultimately result in a higher bottom line for Essex homeowners.

The Availability of Biofuel in the UK

Essex biofuel availability

As part of the UK’s attempt to reduce its dependency on foreign oil and fossil fuels, the government offers incentives to companies who make and sell biofuels as well as to the homeowners who heat with them. While it’s not as widely available as gas or oil, more and more companies add biofuel to their list of offerings each year. To find out whether biofuel is available locally to you, fill out the short form on this website with your request. You’ll be contacted by multiple local companies who can provide biofuel, and you’ll also be able to compare prices.

Always Have Biofuel Boilers Professionally installed

Many Essex homeowners think that installing a biofuel burner can be done as a DIY project. However, not only will doing this place you and your family at risk of injury if something goes wrong due to incorrect installation; most manufacturers of boiler units will clearly state that the warranty will only be applied if the unit has been installed by a qualified and accredited installation engineer. Our experienced engineers will be able to perform this task in your home at reasonable rates.

Your Essex biofuel boiler questions answered

That depends on the type of fuel that is being loaded into the boiler. Some types of fuel come packaged in bags of 22kg/50lb or more, which can be very physically demanding. This is something that should be considered before purchasing a biofuel boiler.

Depending on the type of fuel being burned, the biofuel boiler produces very little to no waste. Any ash that is produced makes good fertilizer for plants or flowers, and they produce almost no smoke. They can be ideal for areas where air pollution is strictly controlled.

This type of boiler has one of the highest initial investment costs. The average installation cost for a biofuel boiler will be somewhere between £14,000 and £19,000.

Yes. Biomass refers to the solid organic waste that is actually used in the production of biofuel. Both items come from the same source. Biomass is simply the first step in the creation of the liquid and gas biofuel that are used in boilers and other devices.

You should always obtain biofuel from an approved source to ensure it is safe to use in your unit. It is also important to have the burners cleaned periodically to eliminate buildup that would increase your risk of a fire.

This depends on the health of the elderly person in question which we wouldn't like to advise on. If they are still able to lift relatively heavy weight without injuring themselves, they should manage working with one of these boilers. Please check with the person in question and a doctor if there are any concerns.

This usually depends on a few unique factors like your municipalities and the company selling you your biofuel. On average, biofuel does cost a little more to produce than the other forms of fuels, though this is expected to change as time goes on. What’s more, homeowners can receive incentives for installing biofuel boilers in their homes, and these can offset the additional cost.

While this may technically be possible, it is not recommended at all. To retain your warranty and ensure that your homeowner’s insurance policy will pay out in the event of a malfunction that results in property loss or damage, it is essential for your burner to be installed by an experienced, qualified and accredited expert.

This will depend on where your property is situated, how fully booked the company is that will be doing the installation and where the unit needs to be installed in your home. However, our network of engineers will be able to provide you with a more accurate timeframe when discussing the various model and installation options with you.
