Central heating with wood: operating principle
The central heating with the wood allows to heat your house thanks to a boiler which recovers the heat of the wood burning to heat water.
This water then circulates in a network of pipes that supplies radiators and / or a heated floor. In addition to log boiler models, there are also high-performance condensing or low-temperature wood boilers that work with pellets or pellets. Central wood heating, such as gas or oil, offers the possibility to produce your domestic hot water if you wish.
Why choose wood central heating?
Wood central heating is the most powerful of all. Although it is the most expensive to buy, it is the most profitable to use because the wood is cheaper than oil or gas.
Indeed, wood has a stable price and does not depend on oil prices. Wood is also considered to be a non-polluting renewable energy because it comes from a regulated forest exploitation. Indeed, in France, we plant more trees than we shoot. In addition, a tree captures more CO2 throughout its life than it releases during combustion. Finally, know that thanks to the excellent performance of the wood boiler (between 85 and 95% for a low temperature model and more than 100% for a model with condensation), this one can benefit from the tax credit and various financial aids. This lowers the purchase price and makes wood central heating more affordable.
How much does the wood central heating cost?
The wood boiler is 2 to 3 times more expensive than a gas boiler. Count between 4000 and 10000 euros depending on the model chosen. Count also 100 euros for the annual maintenance and between 60 and 80 euros monthly for the supply of wood. By taking advantage of the tax credit, you can lower the final amount of the bill. In this case, your wood-burning boiler costs you no more than a gas boiler which can not benefit from any financial aid.
