Typically, 3 boilers types are used in domestic central heating, depending on the property and your needs. A thorough survey will determine the best option for your home, for economy, and heating purposes.
A combination or 'combi' boiler combines is a compact, high-efficiency water heater with a central heating boiler. When you turn on a tap, combi boilers heat water straight from the mains, eliminating the need for a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.
They are highly cost-effective and energy-efficient because the water is heated immediately rather than heated and then stored in a cylinder. Another advantage is that hot water is provided at mains pressure, allowing you to take a vigorous shower without the need for a separate pump.Get a free quote
Regular boilers ('traditional', 'conventional', or 'heat only' boilers) suit properties with an existing traditional heating and hot water system connected to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also require a cold water storage tank in the loft to supply the hot water cylinder, as well as a tank to maintain the central heating system's water level.
If the house has an older radiator system, a normal boiler may be the best option for replacing an existing boiler because it may not be able to handle the greater water pressure produced by system or combi boilers.
System boilers use a cylinder to store hot water, but the essential heating and hot water system components are incorporated into the boiler, making installation faster and easier. Also, with no requirement for a tank in the loft, it may suit properties with limited or no loft space, or when the area is designated for a conversion.
These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which benefit the environment while simultaneously lowering energy expenditures.Get a free quote
