Biomass systems burn wood pellets, chips, logs or other biological materials, to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers. At Torbay Sweeps, we provide biomass sweeping at both commercial and domestic properties, using the latest sweeping technology.
When a biomass system is in use, ‘soot’ particles travel up the flue and start cool. Overtime the particles can begin to stick to the flue’s internal walls and create a residue. This can potentially block up the flue and loose particles will fall creating further blockages to any bends in the flue or the boiler itself. We recommend getting your boiler swept at least once a year (in some cases more frequently), to prevent any damage or breakages when in use.
We provide services for hotels, pubs, restaurants and schools, which include sweeping for the following:
- Biomass boilers
- Oil boilers
- Open boilers
