Different Types of Boilers

Make the right decision when it comes to purchasing and installing a new boiler. Consider carrying out some research into different boilers available to you before going ahead with choosing a boiler. To get in touch, see our additional contact details below.

Combination Boilers

Combination (also known was combi) boilers have quickly become a very popular option for a homeowners throughout the United Kingdom. Why? Well, they are cost-effective and take up little room in your property. As appose to storing water, they are able to heat water as and when it is needed; so they don’t require a water tank, making them much more efficient. Also, combination boilers are the most compact boiler; this means that they are more suited to smaller homes.

Convention Boilers

As for conventional boilers, this boiler requires two water tanks in the loft and a hot water cylinder; something usually placed in an upstairs cupboard. So, as you can tell, they aren’t really suitable for smaller homes due to requiting a lot of available space. 

System Boilers 

The final boiler type to mention is the system boiler; this particular type of boiler doesn’t require water tanks in the loft. In addition to this, they run off one water cylinder; again, something often stored in an upstairs cupboard. All other components however, are built into the boiler itself. So, this makes system boilers ideal for properties with little space available. However, due to this, they are often also quicker and easier to install.
