Which kind of boiler is best for me?

Many people across the UK have been thinking about replacing their boilers recently. A new boiler can help you cut your home running costs and enable you to make a better contribution to the environment at the same time. However, there are many options available to you when it comes to boilers, and what’s right for one home isn’t always the best match for another property. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular types of boilers in the UK right now.

Combi boilers

Combi boilers are also known as combination boilers. These are the biggest-selling boilers in the UK and are able to provide you with hot water and central heating at the same time. You don’t need a cold hot water tank or a hot water storage cylinder to run this kind of boiler. This means you can save space and reduce installation times with these boilers. However, if you have a big home with multiple bathrooms or have low water pressure, you may need to look at other options.

Regular/conventional boilers

These boilers have a water storage tank and cylinder. You will need more physical space for this kind of boiler. The cylinder will also need to be insulated to prevent heat loss. Hot water is heated and stored before you use it. This boiler isn’t the best match for homes with limited space, but it does enable you to use several taps or showers at the same time. This means it’s often a good match for larger homes with low water pressure.

System boilers have a separate cylinder for hot water storage. The cylinder needs to be properly insulated to stop heat loss and maintain efficiency. The primary hot water and heating components of these boilers are built into the boiler itself, making the installation process quicker and easier. You don’t need a cold water tank to run this kind of boiler. This means it’s a good match for a property with no or limited loft space. These boilers rely on your mains water pressure. System boilers are the second-most commonly installed boilers on the market.
