Types of boilers
Combi boilers are very cost-effective and energy efficient since water is heated on demand. Suited to all fuel types, combi boilers require less space than other boiler types as they don’t require a hot water storage cylinder. Choose this type of boiler if you live in a flat or a small house.
A system boiler sits between a combi boiler and a conventional boiler since it combines a hot water storage cylinder with an internal hot water system. This allows it to supply hot water to multiple taps at the same time, making them ideal for homes with more than one bathroom. System boilers combine high efficiency and performance with great environmental benefits.
Conventional boilers are connected to a hot water cylinder and a cold water storage tank in the loft, which is either open vented or sealed. Replacing a conventional boiler requires minimum changes (if any) to your existing heating system. Choose a conventional boiler if you have more than two bathrooms and/or older radiators as the water pressure is lower than with combi or system boilers.
