Boiler Types

Every central heating system is connected to a boiler of some type. There are a variety of boilers that heat your home and provide hot, running water. Depending on the current design of your property may often determine the best type of boiler to have installed. When installing a new central heating system, it’s important to consider the logistics when it comes to piping and placement of radiators.

Below are a range of boilers and their features. If you have any questions on a specific boiler type or would like to enquire about an upgrade – get in touch today.

Combi boilers

  • Smart and compact, a great choice for space saving and smaller homes
  • Typically requires less pipework than other boiler types – allowing you to save in installation costs
  • No additional space needed for a separate water tank
  • Provides a fast and efficient supply of hot water straight from your mains.

Conventional Boilers

  • Requires the installation of a cold-water storage tank (usually in the loft) and a separate hot water tank
  • Suited to larger homes with 2 or more bathrooms that frequently use hot water

System boilers

  • Doesn’t require additional space for a loft tank
  • Provides a constant supply of hot water to all taps in your home
  • Ideal for homes with multiple bathrooms
  • Removes the need for a feed or expansion cistern, making them highly efficient

With each boiler type having their own advantages, it’s essential that you pick the boiler that suits your lifestyle. This includes how many people are in your household, how often you use the heating, daily hot water usage and so on.

Central Heating Engineer ManchesterOne of the most popular and efficient boiler types is the combi boiler. With no need for that separate cold water tank, this boiler often has a cost-effective pipework system that uses fewer pipes than other boilers. The design and functionality of the combi boiler allows for an efficient supply of hot water directly from the mains. This means you don’t have to wait around for the water to heat up before you have a bath or do the dishes.

What makes the combi boiler so popular is its efficiency; heating only the water you use, you can expect to save each month on your energy bills. It’s important to remember – if you use multiple hot taps at the same time, this could reduce the overall pressure and flow of hot water (overall water pressure also impacts this).
