A GUIDE TO BOILERS
The Basics of Household Boilers & Heating
The conventional – or “traditional” boiler –
is the standard heating appliance in many
If you're using a traditional boiler, hot water will
not be provided on demand. Instead, it must be
stored in a large cylinder. The lack of electronics
means that this is a simple and reliable
option, but it is not the most energy-efficient
Combination boilers provide your household
taps with instantly hot water. This is because
that water for the taps is source directly from
the mains connection.
With a combi boiler, there is no necessity for a
storage tank, which saves significant space.
Combi boilers provide the one source for hot water
and heating, meaning that if they have trouble, the
household can be left without both of these
This is a supremely efficient option for any
home. Flue gases are reused to heat the
cool water returning from the radiator
system, which is then pumped back
With a huge drive for green technology and
fuel efficiency, condensing boilers are
becoming more and more popular.
System boilers are extremely convenient.
Major system components are all included
built-in to the main boiler.
The pump, expansion vessel, air vent, and
safety valve are all included, meaning that
system boilers are an efficient use of space. It
is easy to install, and easy to maintain.
Combi Storage Boilers
Many would argue that this is the best
option! Combination Storage boilers run by
adding a tank to a standard combi boiler.
This means that you can forget worries
about the hot water running out.
You can rely on a decent flow rate, with the
ability to use different taps at the same time.
