Keep your fuel store clean and give your biomass boiler a boost!
Properly caring of your fuel store is essential to getting the best performance from your biomass boiler.
Fuel store cleaning leads to the smooth and efficient running of your boiler meaning that your biomass boiler is less likely to develop faults or potentially even breakdown.
What’s involved in a fuel store clean?
Our skilled technicians use specialised equipment to remove up to 250kg of accumulated fines and dust from the hopper, the store walls, and the auger tray. This will ensure that your biomass store is in top condition ready for your next delivery. We can even arrange a clean and redelivery on the same day to minimise boiler downtime.
Ongoing service and maintenance
Once your store is clean and refuelled, we recommend to organise a biomass boiler service ahead of the winter heating season. Servicing your biomass boiler will reduce the risk of breakdowns and give you peace of mind when you need it most.

Why is it important to clean out my fuel store?
Regular fuel store cleaning significantly reduces the risk of boiler issues and breakdowns caused by the build-up of fines and dust. In turn, this helps to increase boiler uptime and maximise RHI payments.
Wood pellet stores can present health and safety risks such as carbon monoxide poisoning. That’s why you should always put your store clean in the hands of the experts. That’s because only trained personnel will follow the correct safety procedures and have the right equipment for the job.
Once your store is clean and refuelled it is advisable to organise a biomass boiler service ahead of the winter heating season. Servicing your biomass boiler will minimise the risk of breakdowns and provide peace of mind when you need it most.
How often should I clean my biomass fuel store?
After wood pellets are removed from a store, they lose their ENplus accreditation. So it’s always best to let your store run as low as possible before a clean.
ENplus recommends that you clean your fuel store out after every five deliveries or once every two years (whichever comes sooner). Additionally, once your store is clean it is the perfect time to get a redelivery and a biomass boiler service.
