Central Heating Boilers

Typically speaking there are three types of Central Heating Boilers: Combi Boilers, System Boilers and Regular Boilers. And they all differ for one reason or another.

Central Heating Boilers - Combi Boiler

A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.

Central Heating Boilers - Benefits and Suitability:

  • Perfect for apartments and smaller residence
  • No loft - perfect solution!
  • Hot Water Cylinder - not required, again saving space
  • Cold Water Tank not required, meaning you can convert that loft into a living space!
  • No loft pipes, so no chance of freezing pipes!
  • Less pipes equates to reduced installation or replacement time

Central Heating Boilers - System Boilers

System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself. System Boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which results in great environmental benefits and lower bills.

Central Heating Boilers - Benefits and Suitability:

  • Has your home got more than one bathroom - system boilers are a perfect solution
  • More than one hot tap? A system boiler will provide hot water to a number of taps at the same time
  • As with the Combi Boiler - no loft tank is required which eliminates the worry of freezing pipes and also allows for better use of space in your loft.
  • They are a very economical to run and with the built-in components installation time is reduced considerably and the end result is very neat.

Central Heating Boilers - Regular Boilers:

Regular boilers are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.

Central Heating Boilers - Benefits and Suitability:

  • Is a lot of hot water used at the same time in your home? Perfect solution.
  • Has your home got two or more bathrooms?
  • Do you have low water pressure levels in certain areas? Again, a perfect solution.
  • Great integration with a solar water heating systems, reducing the carbon footprint of your home and also saving money down the road.
