Pay as you go service
Servicing, maintenance and breakdown visits are available on a pay as you go (PAYG) basis. This applies to customers outside of their parts and/or labour warranty, or works not covered by the warranty. Service and maintenance cost for PAYG customers is detailed below for single systems. Discounts are available on sites where multiple boilers are present.
As a PAYG customer, access to breakdown engineers and technical support is available weekdays from 09:00 to 17:00. Should there be an issue outside of these hours, customers have the option of dropping an email to our dedicated customer service team who will address it as soon as they're back in the office at 9am.

Managing your fuel supply
The right type and quality of wood fuel is fundamental to the successful, consistent and long-term functioning of your biomass boiler. We have a whole section to help you understand the characteristics of good quality fuel and where to find quality assured suppliers in your area.
Managing & selling your biomass boiler
The government, being aware that businesses change, move, and sometimes cease trading, designed the RHI scheme to allow boilers to be moved or to change hands. When the boiler is moved or sold the tariff remains at the level of the original install.
As the RHI payments were higher at the start of the scheme than current levels it can, in certain circumstances, be beneficial for new projects to consider a used biomass boiler with a higher tariff rather than a new biomass boiler.
So if you are interested in either selling, moving or purchasing a used biomass boiler with RHI accreditation, you have come to the right place.
