Fuel costs to schools and businesses are one of the key concerns of their annual budget. Many of their building are wide-open spaces, with not the best insulation, and this makes heating an expensive business. Heating solutions have been very limited, for either choosing an oil or gas burner, there has been very other little choice, as heating with electricity makes oil seem cheap.
Most organizations are looking for other options to provide suitable heating, mostly driven by the need to save money as their available budgets are much less after the economic recession. However, they are also driven by environmental concerns, particularly the schools, as it is their role to lead by example and educate to the issue of global warming.
Substantial savings could be made each year by installing a wood pellet heating solution such as a pellet stove or boiler, and there is help available to help reduce the costs of start up. There are government and local authority funding schemes to get greener heating solutions installed; these include for example zero interest loans.
There are obviously other forms of wood heating such as log and wood chip boilers and stoves, however both of these systems lack the improvements of pellet burning technology. Pellet systems are highly reliable and automated, and can be left for weeks and some cases months without attention.
To reduce the amount of time the pellet burner needs attention, a large external fuel hopper can be one of the best options. The hopper will keep the pellet burner running for months on end, and only require a re-fill once or twice a year.
As the recent oil spill off the gulf coast has shown us, we need to move away from our dependence on oil. Wood pellet heating systems can be part of that solution along with other renewable energy options.
