Our friendly and professional team make choosing the right boiler easy. If you’re unsure about choosing the right boiler but are not ready to contact us yet, here’s a quick guide to the different types of boilers available.
There are three types of condensing boiler: combination, system and regular (sometimes called a “traditional” or “conventional” boiler). All three options are highly efficient systems, so choosing the right boiler depends on several factors.
Different types of boilers
Short for combination, the combi-boiler is compact and efficient. A combi-boiler heats hot water as well as heating the radiators and is a compact, small unit. Saving space and money.
If you’re replacing an older boiler, there’s a chance the existing heating system will be a regular, or conventional, boiler. This, typically, consists of a boiler; external controls located some distance away; a feed with expansion cistern; a hot water tank – normally in the airing cupboard – ; and a cold water storage tank – usually sited above the airing cupboard, in the loft.
A system boiler, like a regular boiler, uses stored water, but unlike a regular boiler, many of the heating and hot water components are built into a system boiler, rather than being in different parts of your property.
Choosing the right boiler for you
Choosing the right boiler for you depends on some factors such as property type or living requirements. If you want to make sure you’ve always got hot water, then a combi-boiler is going to be the right boiler for you. If you’ve got more than one bathroom in the property, then a system or regular boiler could be more suitable for your needs.
