RHI Eligible Pellets Boiler for Perthshire Home

Pellets replaces Oil Boiler

A Perthshire family looking to reduce their heating costs by replacing their oil boiler contacted Ecoliving to explore renewable heating alternatives. With a large, older house and, therefore, a fairly high heat demand the most appropriate solution was a pellets boiler.

Ecoliving conducted an on-site survey to determine the heat loss and discuss the potential locations of the boiler and pellets store. A full heat loss calculation was then produced showing the anticipated annual running cost which, in this case, represented a fuel saving compared to oil.
