I'm renovating a village hall and am looking at a biomass boiler to replace our ageing oil burner. What are the pros/cons of them...?

Do they need to be against an external wall for the hopper?
How big are they?  I need one big enough to heat 230sqM of hall/rooms!
Typically how big are the hoppers?
Are there any building regs issues?
What are the storage issues for the fuel?
How much 'attention' do they need? .... cleaning etc.

You can now get fully automatic larger pellet boilers to directly replace an  oil system. Have a look at

And for storage of wood pellets

Container will be filled up normally twice a year like an oil delivery
