Biomass Boilers

Introducing Biomass Boiler Heating Systems

The McComish Group is proud to be recognised as one of Scotland’s leading installers of advanced Biomass heating systems, serving both the domestic and commercial marketplaces. Biomass boilers are low cost, carbon-neutral heating solutions. They are becoming increasingly popular thanks to Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI), which see’s participants being paid an annual fee for using Biomass heating systems, making Biomass even more affordable. Find out more about biomass boilers or RHI incentives.

What is a Biomass Boiler?

Biomass boilers burn wood pellets, logs or chips to power central heating systems. Our Biomass heating installations are not only eco-friendly, they are also a great investment. With a reduction of up to 14.5 tonnes in carbon dioxide emissions and a notable saving on gas/electricity payments each year, biomass boilers are one of the most exciting developments in heating technology.
