What is the right boiler for my needs?

If you need help finding the right boiler for your property, this article is for you. Read on to find out what to consider when you need a new boiler for your household.

What do I need to think about when buying a boiler?

One of the three most essential things to think about when you’re buying a boiler is the boiler type. The three main types of boiler available to you are combi, conventional and system. You’ll also need to think about fuel type. The main fuel types on the market are gas, oil, electric and biomass. Finally, you’ll need to consider the size of the boiler.

Combi boilers

Combi boilers are the most common type of boilers in UK homes. They can supply you with hot water and central heating simultaneously. You don’t need a hot water tank or hot water storage cylinder if you have a combi boiler installed. However, they are not usually suitable for larger homes where many people may need access to hot water at the same time.

Conventional boilers

Conventional boilers have a cylinder and a water storage tank. This means you’ll need more physical space than if you install a combi boiler. If you have a larger home, this option may be ideal. This is because several people can use taps and showers at the same time. These boilers can be integrated with solar thermal systems, which makes them a somewhat eco-friendly option.

System boilers

A system boiler is a good option for a home with more than one bathroom. This is due to the fact they have a separate cylinder for hot water storage. The installation process tends to be quick because the main heating and hot water components are in-built. These boilers don’t need a cold water tank, so they could be ideal for you if you don’t have much space within your home.

Gas, oil, electric and biomass

Gas boilers are the most common boiler type in the UK, but oil-fired boilers are used by many households that don’t have access to gas pipeline networks. If you do have an oil-fired boiler installed, you’ll need plenty of ground space for the fuel storage tank. Many people opt for electric boilers when they need something small and compact. These are very popular with people who aren’t connected to the gas grid. Biomass boilers are increasingly popular systems which operate by burning wood.
