Changing over to pellet heating:
More and more owners of oil heating systems are changing over to pellets. The reasons are clear. Pellet supplies are plentiful and not subject to crises and fluctuations of heating oil supplies. The existing system is analysed at the planning stage and integrated to the new system. If there is an oil tank room, this can usually be converted into a pellet store without any problems. In most cases you can continue to use existing radiators and circulation pumps. Pellet fired boilers need a moisture-resistant chimney so the chimney should be examined and approved by a specialist.
Official support for wood-fired heating:
Regional governments have support programmes to encourage people to change over to heating systems using pellets.
