Biomass heating systems, unlike other renewable energy sources, do emit carbon dioxide. However, it is the carbon dioxide (CO 2) taken from the atmosphere by trees for photosynthesis that is released during burning. This closed CO 2 cycle means that biomass heating is considered a renewable energy source.
How to size a biomass boiler and estimate fuel consumption
Biomass Boilers - Benefits and Costs of Biomass Heating
A noncontact temperature sensor measures the area around a heat source, such as a room thermostat. There are lots of types of temperature sensors that work in different ways, but every type will fall within these two categories. Some examples of temperature sensors include thermocouples, thermistors and infrared sensors.
A temperature transmitters converts the thermocouple or RTD signal to a 4-20 mA output signal and is the ideal solution for many remote temperature measurement applications. 4-20ma transmitters have definite advantages over conventional temperature measuring devices, but must be selected with caution in order to avoid ground loop problems. Why use temperature transmitters?
When set up correctly, a programmable room thermostat prevents the system from having to heat the house from a 'cold start'. The control always maintains a temperature within the property and this ensures that the boiler is only ever 'topping up' the temperature in the home. As a guideline, target temperatures should be set at 21 C for comfort temperature and 15 C for economy temperature.
