Concerned about your carbon footprint?

Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels with biomass heating. Instead of burning fossil fuels for energy, biomass heating uses organic materials like wood or pellets. Biomass heating is a green form of energy! Biomass is considered a carbon neutral form of energy because the carbon dioxide released when it is burned is only that which was absorbed by the plant during its life.

Looking for a more consistent, affordable form of energy?

A major financial benefit of using biomass boilers for heating is that there is less exposure to the fluctuations of the energy market. In the last year or so, market prices have fluctuated and the cost is always passed onto the consumer. But with biomass heating, you always know what your heating costs will be from year to year. Wood is inexpensive, readily available, and a green, renewable fuel. Wood boilers make some of the best options in home heating since they are highly efficient, clean burning, safe and convenient to use.

Want to go off-grid?

With biomass heating you will be able to go off of the grid and enjoy your independence, generating your own heating. Why pay the utility company when you can pay yourself by generating your own heat?

Outdoor wood boilers take up zero living space and are extremely cost-effective. Our Portage & Main Boilers are known as the “Original Efficient One” and are the most efficient wood boilers in the industry.
