Micro-combined heat and power (Micro-CHP) boilers are a type of boiler that use gas to generate both heat and electricity. They function similarly to typical gas boilers, but as well as simply producing heat, they use that heat to simultaneously create electricity that you can use in the home. This means that when the heating is on the Micro-CHP boiler will generate electricity which can be either used or sold back to the grid.
Since central heating in the house is often on in the mornings and the evenings, a significant quantity of the electricity used at peak times can be produced by the reduced carbon Micro-CHP boiler, which functions very efficiently. Micro-CHP boilers in addition have the benefit of requiring little additional installation in comparison to other environmentally friendly choices, since they typically take up the same location as a conventional gas boiler.
Micro-CHP boilers meet the requirements for the Feed-in Tariff, which means surplus electricity generated can be sold back to the main grid. Micro-CHP boilers, since they generate electricity as a by product of heat, are most cost effective in large houses or houses with a large heating requirement. They may also be efficiently paired with a solar panel system, as Micro-CHP boilers are more likely to be operating throughout the winter months or overnight when solar photovoltaic systems are creating less electricity.
