Elderly friends sat around laughing at laptop


LC Energy was commissioned by Birtley House nursing home to increase the sustainability of their heating, whilst improving control and efficiency of space and water heating.

In October 2014, we removed an existing KWB 150 kW wood chip fired boiler, and installed the new ETA 199 kW. The previous boiler system used a temperature differential between Flow and Return (ΔT) of about 11°C. By employing the new ETA 199 kW boiler, it was intended to increase the maximum temperature differential used for heat distribution to about 15°C. LC Energy guided Birtley House with their non-domestic RHI application, and continue to supply wood chip as fuel for this boiler.


We understand the importance of a reliable source of heating for nursing and retirement homes. We can install and maintain biomass boilers to meet individual home specifications, and supply sustainable and renewable wood fuel at a competitive rate. Our wood chip is WoodSurePlus approved, and our pellets are ENA1 Plus certified, which ensures quality burn and minimal emissions. Our products are registered on the Biomass Suppliers List, which guarantees responsible sourcing and woodland management, allowing our customers to claim grants as part of the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive scheme.
