Expert biomass and ground source heat pump installations for estates and farms

Dunster has extensive experience working with owners in the rural sector, designing, delivering and maintaining biomass and ground source heat pump systems, catering to multiple properties, whether retrofit or new build. Using proven products and technology, we work with customers to develop tailored, workable and long-lasting solutions.

Farm and Estates


Dunster’s wood chip or wood fuelled heating systems offer country house owners the opportunity to save on fuel by as much as 50%; savings are highest where the installation displaces LPG or oil.

Biomass benefits: estates and farms

  • Increased savings: woodchip can deliver heat at between 1.5 - 3.5p kWh, versus oil or LPG at 5p kWh and electricity at 12p+ kWh.
  • Attractive payback: receive RHI payments for up to 20 yrs, with a good return on investment of between 5%- 25%.
  • Ability to integrate: biomass can integrate with your existing system (gas boiler or electric fire) fulfilling space, under floor and water heating requirements at higher temperatures.
  • Reduced environmental footprint: great for your corporate social responsibility and reputation.
  • Green credentials: helps differentiate from competitors and makes it easier to gain planning permissions.

Help fund your boiler: Dunster has teamed up with an investment partner to offer a unique funding facility for biomass installations qualifying for the domestic RHI.
