Biomass Maintenance

The new scheme run by HETAS will recognise competent maintenance businesses and individuals that can carry out manufacturers’ required appliance maintenance and raise the importance of burning the correct fuel. Engineers registered on the scheme will be able to meet the requirements placed on commercial (non-domestic) recipients of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to prove their appliance is properly maintained.

Why maintain your appliance?

  • Poorly maintained appliances emit particulates that damage air quality.
  • Annual appliance maintenance is a critical factor in ensuring they operate efficiently and effectively, reducing costs for the owner and having a significant impact on harmful emissions.
  • Requirements have been placed on commercial (non domestic) recipients of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to prove their appliance is properly maintained.

What can we help you with?

What’s changing for RHI recipients with biomass appliances?

Recipients of the non-domestic RHI for biomass boilers will be required to have annual planned maintenance that meets the MCS Standard.

The Standard was prepared by the MCS Biomass Maintenance Working Group in consultation with the industry. It follows research by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

What does a service involve?

Each service can vary slightly depending on the boiler, its size and any other connected ancillary equipment in use. 

Your maintenance engineer will carry out a general inspection and safety checks among other technical checks. It is also worth checking your boiler manufacturer’s operating manual for specific requirements and timeframes.
