Hydronic Heating systems can utilise a range of heat sources to heat the water to be circulated. Solid Fuel Boilers is the name given to Boilers that are loaded with a fuel source to burn creating the heat. There are a range of fuels that can be burnt in these boilers including: Wood, Charcoal, Peat, Coal, Fuel Tablets and Organic Pellets.

Solid Fuel Boilers can be highly efficient and will definitely help to keep electricity bills down. In the case utilising Wood as the fuel source the fuel can be readily available, but they do require more physical effort than a system such as an Air to Water Heat Pump for example. Modern advancements include Wood Gasification boilers which are constructed on the principle of generator gasifying with the use of a gas exhaust ventilator which withdraws the combustion gasses from the boiler or leads air into the boiler.

Solid Fuel Boilers are very well suited to cold climate locations including rural environments as well as in homes that may be fully off-grid or have a reduced availability of electricity. There are many brands of solid fuel boilers including: Baxi, Kroll, Firex, Atmos and Ferroli.
