20 kW Pellmax UB with 500 litre Aqualux buffer tank, Balmaha, Loch Lomond, Glasgow, G63

The client wanted a fully bespoke, pellet biomass heating system fitted within an external plant room.

The Värmebaronen 20 kW Pellmax UB pellet boiler with 500 litre Aqualux buffer tank provides plenty hot water for the central heating and domestic hot water demand of this 141m2 detached bungalow. The BioCabin was chosen as the external plant room to house the heating system.

The old oil boiler (situated inside the house) was decommissioned and completely remoted making the Varmebaronen biomass system the sole heat source for the property. Extra room within the plant room allows the client to store his bicycles and other items.

Our client was originally thinking of having his biomass system all fitted within the Bio Cabin, with a 1 tonne hopper supplying pellets to the boiler, but later decided that the delivery system should be fully automatic, so the hopper was changed to a 4 tonne hopper situated outside the Bio Cabin – allowing the wood pellets to be delivered by a truck that piped the pellets directly into the hopper. The benefit of this is that the client can take delivery of the fuel without being on site and can also take advantage of a lower price per tonne on a larger delivery.
