Biomass is considered a renewable source of energy. According to the Energy Information Administration, 53% of all renewable energy consumed in the United States in 2007 was biomass-based.

  • Biomass Heating Systems Are a Proven Technology--One That Has Been in Use for Thousands of Years since humans began burning wood to cook and keep warm.
  • Biomass Heating Systems are Highly Durable and Will operate for Decades.
  • Biomass Systems Require Annual Maintenance.
  • They are most suitable for homes and commercial buildings in colder climates, that use oil or electricity for space heating.
