Different Types of Boilers to Install

When you get a new boiler, you need to decide on which type is best for you. Different boilers are better for different homes, but it can be tricky to decide which is the right one for your home. Choosing a boiler depends on the size of your home, your amount of bathrooms and your need for hot water. Keep reading to find out more!


Condensing boilers

The first thing to know is what a condensing boiler is. Every boiler you come across will be condensing, as it is something that all boilers are required to be. New condensing technology means that all boilers will be over 90% efficient, which makes a huge difference to your bills! Any new boiler you install will be condensing, as this is now the law.

Conventional boilers

Conventional boilers require the most space of the three, as they have the most components. They need two water tanks and a storage cylinder. This means your home has to have a lot of free space to accommodate for this. Having a water cylinder does mean that heat energy can be lost in storage, so it must be insulated correctly. If you have an older home with an older radiator system, then this is a great option as they can suit the water pressure. They can also meet a high demand for hot water, easily.

System boilers

System boilers could be seen as a good middle ground between conventional and combi boilers. They can easily meet a high demand for hot water, but they do not require as many components as conventional boilers. They have a water tank so have similar downsides as are mentioned above. Apart from this, they are a great boiler to go for. 

Combi boilers

Combi boilers are perfect for smaller homes, as they only require the boiler itself. They use mains water pressure to give you hot water as and when you need it, making them incredibly efficient. However, they can struggle to meet a high demand for hot water, so are best suited to smaller homes with a single bathroom.
