There are 3 main types of biomass boilers; low temperature hot water (LTHW), high temperature hot water (HTHW) and steam. LTHW accounts for the vast majority of boilers sold in the UK and are typically run at temperatures no higher than 90°C, often slightly lower. LTHW biomass boilers tend to be the most common replacement for fossil fuel

Indirect hot water cylinders typically use an external energy source, such as a traditional central heating boiler, solar thermal system or biomass, which is fed into the cylinder via a coil or heat exchanger which then indirectly heats the hot water.
Biomass heating systems, also called wood heating systems, burn organic materials typically wood logs, pellets or chips in a wood-burning stove or boiler to provide heat and hot water. Stoves are generally used as standalone room heaters for one room. But stoves can incorporate or be connected to a boiler.

04/05/2015 · A biomass boiler works in a very similar way to conventional boilers, combusting fuel to produce heat that is then used to heat water. Biomass boilers are normally substantially bigger than their fossil fuel-burning brothers though, for a number of reasons.
