Most properties will have a boiler installed as part of its heating system. Though the precise brand and model will differ, there are three main types, each with their merits and demerits and are suitable for different types of property and heating requirements.

System Boilers

Though they are more costly to install, system boilers are ideal for larger homes which may require hot water from more one outlet at once. As much of the system is built into the boiler itself, there is no need for a separate tank, saving you both the space and cost of installing one. Having that said, you will still need a hot water cylinder, which should be well-insulated to prevent heat loss.


Conventional Boilers

Also known as traditional boilers, this was one of the most popular type of boiler installed residential dwellings which is being slowly replaced by combi or system boilers. However, if you live in an area with low mains water pressure, or if you have two or more bathrooms, a conventional boiler might still be the best option. It’s also suitable for older homes which have both cold and hot-water header tanks in the loft space.

Combi Boilers

Combi is short for Combination, and is so named as it combines both water-heating and central heating into a single compact unit which doesn’t require external water storage tanks, making them ideal for the smaller properties. They are highly cost- and energy-efficient as the water is heated on a as-required basis, which means there is minimal heat loss from ready-heated water in storage tanks.
