How do you install a brand new boiler for free?

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), backed by the Government, provides for a fixed sum for every kWh/T of energy generated by wood pellet heating systems. A Shade Greener uses these payments to offer customers a free wood pellet boiler.

Do I need to clean the boiler?

The boiler has a fully automatic self-cleaning mechanism, which means you never have to clean the boiler. Depending on how much you use the boiler, you will need to empty the ash bin every 1 to 2 weeks. Most people simply dispose of the ash in their household bin, or on their garden.

How do I put fuel in the boiler?

The boiler has an integrated fuel store of approximately 32 litres of wood pellets. We install an external 3 tonne wood pellet fuel silo and when the boiler is running low on its internal store, it automatically vacuums or augers pellets from the silo to the boiler. You should never have to manually load fuel into the boiler.

How will I control the boiler?

We will install the boiler and connect it to your existing heating controls for your ease of use.

How long will the installation take?

A Shade Greener will install your new wood pellet boiler within two days. However, we aim to do most installations within the same day.

How much can I save by using a wood pellet boiler?

A Shade Greener customers are already saving around 50% of their electricity costs. Depending on your current fuel type, you could save around 70% of your annual heating costs.
