When installing a wood-fired heating system, finding a qualified professional installer who can properly size and design the system will be important. Prices can vary, so it's also key to get a few quotes from different installers.
How to find installers
To receive financial support through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), the installer, equipment and fuel will need to be accredited / certified. The directory of Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certified installers and products is available at www.microgenerationcertification.org.
Also, the boiler needs to be on Ofgem's Product Eligibility List.
In addition to the MCS certification, some installers of heating systems will have voluntarily joined other professional bodies and agreed to abide by their codes - such as the organisations listed below.
For biomass equipment not eligible for the RHI (e.g. a standalone log stove), you could also use the HETAS website to find retailers and installers.
