Solid Fuel Boilers



Solid Fuel Boilers

Solid fuel boilers are not vastly different in structure to you average combination boiler. The fuel a solid fuel boiler runs on is referred to as “solid fuel”, solid fuel can take many forms such as; coal, wood, paper – the safe fuel you would normally feed with a fire at home, although BHL highly advise against feeding a solid fuel boiler with processed types of household rubbish. Most solid fuel boilers are fed with solid fuel in a similar way as you would a fire, but there are also some solid fuel boilers available that appear to run in the same manner as other types of non-solid fuel boilers, with pellets of solid fuel being fed into the machine from a storage unit. The description of what is a solid fuel boiler varies from person to person – some describing it as a messy alternative to “clean” gas boiler, electricity and oil, and others claiming a solid fuel boiler provides a more aesthetically pleasing system that could provide cheaper energy bills as the costs of fuels rise. There are two main types of solid fuel boilers; stoves, and independent boilers. Stoves with either free standing boilers, or central heating boilers set into the wall of the household, which can often burn a large variety of solid fuels. Boilers that run on solid fuel come in a good sized range, some hand-fired, some running on fuels such as wood pellets that are fed automatically to the boiler fire – often with the ability to burn for many days on a  single filling.

Installation:

The appliance must stand on a non-combustible constructional hearth. Holes corresponding to the hearth must be drilled, slide the appliance back into the opening and secure it. The void at the back must then be filled with cement or any other non-combustible insulation material. Insert the flue from inside the appliance, and connect it to the flue collar using the flue liner adaptor. Once completed all this, seal liner with fire cement, if the appliance is installed on an unlined masonry flue fir a non-combustible closure plate to locate the first section of single wall flue pipe from the appliance to the old system, also make the connection as with a flue liner system. BHL recommend you do not connect the system into large voids that could exist in older chimney systems. BHL recommend you have someone qualified in the profession, install your boiler – if you were to install your own boiler its warranty would then be void.  If this is the case BHL advice that you use a flue lining system to improve the operation of the appliance. BHL’s friendly install team can be reached at any time during opening hours to discuss quotes, so why not give us a call?

What’s that output?

BHL stock solid fuel boilers with outputs from 13KW to 23KW. A boilers KW output is the rating of which the power is being used. The output is the amount of heat used; the output/input ratio gives the efficiency of the boiler. A boilers output should be paired with the heat load of the house. The Trianco TRG 45 and 60 have a lower output making them more suitable for a smaller area; the Trianco TRH MK4 is also a boiler or low output. However, the Trianco TRG 80 is of a slightly higher output therefore allowing it to heat a larger room. BHL have a solid fuel boiler suitable for any home, you can contact the team here at BHL to inquire further about the output size you would need for the room you’re looking to heat.
