Wood is a renewable, affordable and domestic energy source as a fuel. Wood heating is an environmentally friendly and common way to heat detached houses.
About 30% of Finland’s heating is currently produced with wood, a heat pump or a combination of these.
The active wood heater heats with its wood boiler all year round. In winter it means heating work daily, while in summer once a week, for the production of hot water. Many wood heaters are comfort heaters that rarely enjoy the benefits of wood heating, but reap the benefits by heating the coldest frosts with wood, resulting in the highest consumption of purchased energy.
The hybrid heater connects, for example, an energy accumulator and solar collectors or an air-to-water heat pump to the wood boiler, so that the heating method used can be varied according to the cost price and the season. Many also have a wood-burning fireplace, the heat of which is distributed by the Air Heat Pump. The most cost-effective model for heating with wood is achieved when the heating wood is obtained from one’s own forest.
Wood heating suits every heating form
In wood boilers, wood burners are used as fuel. When the boilers burn, the boiler produces heat, which is stored in an energy accumulator that is always connected to the system. The accumulator reduces the binding capacity of the heating and improves the energy efficiency of the heating system. Heat pump, solar or electric heating for auxiliary or parallel heating can also be connected to the accumulator. Therefore, wood heating is a flexible heating solution.
Jäspi Wood boilers
In addition to the traditional top fire boiler (Jäspi YPV 40), the Jäspi wood boiler collection includes highly efficient and environmentally friendly reverse fire boilers (Jäspi Econature and Ecopuu 25). The Econature boiler has versatile automatic control, which simplifies heating work and reduces the need for maintenance. Energy-efficient wood combustion also brings direct savings in fuel costs and reduces fine particulate emissions. Jäspi wood boilers are always connected to charge an energy accumulator, which is determined by the object to be heated and the wood boiler used. The accumulator reduces the work related to heating and improves the energy efficiency of the heating system.
Pellet heating is an ecological and economical way to heat
Pellets are a renewable domestic wood energy, the raw material of which is mostly cutter or sawdust. A pellet boiler heats the property through either a radiator or underfloor heating network. Hot water is heated by a hot water coil in the boiler. A pellet heating boiler is best suited for pellet heating, and its design has taken into account the special features of the form of heating – ash from biofuel, the need to clean the boiler and the adequacy of hot water.
