Heating a house with firewood in a wood gasification boiler is a traditional and increasingly popular method of obtaining heat. In the era of rising energy costs and concern for the natural environment, many people are looking for alternative heating methods that will be economical, ecological and effective. Heating with firewood meets these requirements, and wood gasification boilers are a modern solution to this problem.
Boilers Wood stove - modern low power installation solutions based on a 15 to 26 kW wood boiler
Wood has been the main source of heat in our homes for centuries. Currently, thanks to modern technologies, we have wood-fired boilers at our disposal, which allow for significant savings and care for the natural environment.
Increasingly, old hard coal heating is being replaced by new central heating - a wood stove. New models of boilers have a much more efficient exchanger where the exhaust gases are used more and the product is more efficient.
In the article below, we will try to bring the subject of wood-fired boilers, in particular those based on gasification technology, closer.
Wood as fuel

Wood, as a fuel, has many advantages that speak for its use in home heating. It is a renewable and environmentally friendly material, because burning wood does not emit sulfur dioxide, but only carbon monoxide and water. Wood is also relatively easily available and its costs are relatively low compared to other fuels.
Preparation of wood for burning
In order for wood to be an effective source of heat, it must be properly prepared for combustion in class 5 boilers. First of all, the wood should be dried so that the moisture content does not exceed 20%. Dry wood has a higher calorific value and allows for more efficient combustion. The next step is to cut the wood to the appropriate dimensions, i.e. a length of about 30 cm and a diameter of 8-15 cm. The wood for burning should be seasoned for at least 2 years under cover. We try to allocate clearings of healthy trees without mold and diseases.
Ecology of wood and coal boilers
Wood boilers are one of the most ecological solutions in the field of heating. Unlike other fuels, wood is a natural resource that is renewable and environmentally friendly. By burning wood, we do not emit substances harmful to the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide or sulfur oxide. It should be remembered that in order to meet the ecological requirements - Clean Air programs, a buffer system should be installed in water central heating systems. The buffer provides us with the so-called heat storage, in which we store energy, i.e. heat for later use. In our store www.kotly24.pl you will find easy-to-use KDS and PellPal D wood-fired boilers. These are devices adapted to burn wood and their efficiency allows for efficient use of fuel.
Konstal Pleszew - manufacturer of boilers
The Konstal Pleszew company offers wood boilers based on gasification technology, which allows for effective wood combustion and significant savings. Konstal Pleszew boilers are characterized by high efficiency and low emissions of harmful substances. The company's offer includes boilers of various power, which allows you to choose the right device for individual customer needs.
KDS+ and PellPal D boilers are built on the basis of the construction of the lower combustion boiler. They can work in open system installations and in closed systems, the so-called diaphragm - pressure. The manufacturer equipped them with a ceramic nozzle where combustible gases mix with oxygen. They have a large combustion chamber, which makes it easy to load with wood.
Comparison of wood heating costs
Comparing the costs of heating with wood compared to other heat sources is an important aspect that is worth considering when choosing the right heating system. Here is a comparison of the cost of heating with wood in relation

In the case of heating with wood in gasification boilers, the costs depend on many factors, such as the price of wood, the cost of the device and the cost of its installation. However, compared to other heating methods, wood heating is one of the cheapest options. We often compare the construction of boilers, the materials they are made of and the accessories they are equipped with. In this case, simple devices such as an ordinary wood stove become practical without failure, which we cannot say about such advanced devices as a heat pump. The wood-fired boiler does not require cyclical servicing during the warranty period, rigorous installation conditions.
To sum up, the costs of heating with wood are relatively low compared to other heating methods, but they depend on many factors. When choosing the right heating system, you should consider both the cost of the device and its installation, as well as operating costs. We can buy and obtain wood at attractive prices. The operation of a wood-fired boiler is friendly to the environment and your wallet. A suitable boiler should have a large combustion chamber.
A well-chosen and installed boiler generates low operating costs, meets standards and is environmentally friendly.
