The benefits of wood chip heating
Wood chip heating is an energy-efficient and eco-friendly heating method. Wood is a renewable natural resource, and chipping surplus timber promotes efficient forest management and sustainable energy production.
Choosing the right kind of wood chip burner and –boiler guarantees efficiency, which also translates to fuel cost savings.
What are wood chips?
Wood chips are chipped/cut up wood, often made with a wood chipper. The chipped wood is sourced as a byproduct of forest management or the timber industry. You can also take your own timber to be chipped by a local operator.
For best heating results, wood chips should be a few centimetres long, of uniform quality, and dry. The wood chips should contain as little green material (such as conifers) as possible, but bark chips, for example, are great for wood chip heating. Dry wood chips of uniform quality make the wood chip burner more efficient, burning more evenly, more cleanly and more effectively.
