Summer Tips for optimal wood pellet fuel performance

Thanks to the summer weather, home owners are powering down their boilers and dialling back the heat to enjoy the warm temperatures. We have some advice on how to keep your wood pellet fuel performance optimal.

Off-peak periods are the perfect time to ensure that your store is clean and your boiler is prepared for the next heating season.  We have devised this four point check to help you maintain optimum performance for your wood pellets fuel boiler set-up:

 

The four point check

  • Store is Clean.  Although our wood pellets have less than 1% fine material, this can build up over time from many loads if a store is not cleaned. Check out our Summer Fuel Store Maintenance Guide.
  • Annual Service.  Make sure that your boiler is serviced annually by a certified technician to ensure the appliance is operating safely and correctly.  Contact us for assistance in finding your nearest accredited installer.
  • Thermostat.  Check and adjust your thermostat settings to ensure your heating system is turned down for warm weather, keeping you comfortable and saving energy this summer.
  •  Advance Ordering.  Check your store to gauge when you will need to re-order and don’t leave it until the last minute to avoid being caught out on cool summer nights.  You can easily order your wood pellet fuel online HERE
