That's odd as I have 3 domestic customers with 65kw boilers and 1 with 80kw.

I have just fired off an email to domesticrhi@ofgem.gov.uk asking whether I can now apply for the RHI tariff. They promise a response within 10 days. 

If the recent changes allow me to apply I'll be owing you a drink:thumbup:

50% of the RHI would be fine

 

The only problem you might have now is that the domestic RHI has stopped I think! Worth a try though

David, with that relatively small accumulator do you find that you can easily over fire the tank?
Even with our 4000 ltr tank I find I’m on occasion putting in more wood than is needed, so can waste wood

not really any probs with overheating the system as it is a bit undersize for the building

 

in spring  or autumn the underfloor heating is a bit of a blunt instrument and things may get a bit hot

We find that during warmer weather a fire once every three days is sufficient to keep the three bathrooms warm for mornings and nights
