Can anyone please advise on the correct ventilation requirement for biomass boilers in the UK? For commercial gas boilers (if we are aloud to mention them here) the rate is given in BS6644 as 4cm2 low level and 2cm2 high level of free area. When replacing gas or oil systems with biomass plus some gas backup and peak load input I have not found a standard that contains any clear guidance.

You need to check the makers installation instructions for both boilers and add them together, its going to be way more than the 4 and 2 cm2 that you refer to.

PS welcome Smiley by the way, someone on this forum will be able to refer you to the correct sizes/references etc

I would have thought that most good biomass boilers are room-sealed, in which case the ventilation is just for safety.

Room sealed gas boilers in comprtments require 5cm2/kw output both high and low level according to my book. I dont know about biomass boiler but it would be about the same wouldn.t it? Also Grim1 says with some gas back up, so both together is even more I would say.

Biomass, is a renewable energy source, biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, and alcohol fuels. So, I guess it doesn't need a ventilation?

aira93, you are, presumably, a renewable energy source, biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, and alcohol fuels.  Don't you need ventilation?

A masterful post. The first sentence of the definition of "Biomass" pasted from wikipedia, and a possible mis-understanding of what "ventilation" is. Martin - I think you might just be right in your 'spam' suspicion :-) Looks like the writer must have been tasked to find all threads with "ventilation" in the subject, attempt to write a reply, and add spam. Indeed just Google for aira93 ventilation: evidently a member of many forums, and an expert in the ventilation of crankcases, incubators, and even beehives, etc!
