Grant Biomass Forum is Now Live!

Our new biomass forum is finally up and running fully!

We found that there was a real lack of easily-accessible information about biomass boilers and systems online, and not everyone wants to go through product manuals they don’t know much about! This was what inspired us to create the Biomass Forum, not just so that we can enable consumers and installers to educate themselves but also to give our potential customers a gateway to finding knowledgeable, accessible fitters in their area.

The forum isn’t all about business though, and we will soon be wheeling out additional categories for talking about the way biomass energy works, as well as how to make your home more environmentally friendly. We’re also keen to educate as many people as possible about the benefits of biomass boilers, whether you currently have one or not – there are a lot of exciting developments happening in the biomass industry right now!

If you’re an installer of biomass boilers, especially the Grant Spira, this could be a fantastic opportunity for you to use your knowledge for good and maybe get yourself some new business.

For homeowners who may or may not have a biomass boiler installed, connecting with qualified professionals can help you make the best decisions and they should be able to help by answering any questions you might have.

It takes two minutes to sign up and our friendly Technical Team will be monitoring the forum, so if you need anything get in touch straight away. And don’t forget to introduce yourself to the board in the Membership Area!

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve the Grant Biomass Forum please get in touch – we look forward to hearing from you!
