Which Type of Boiler is Best for Your Home?
Boilers come in a variety of types, styles and sizes, which ensures there is a boiler out there for your requirements. Below we have explained the basics of the main types available to help you choose which boiler is best for you and your home.
A combination boiler, also referred to as a combi boiler, uses the mains water pressure to power hot water through the property, whether it’s for your radiators or hot water for the taps. With a combi boiler the water is heated as and when it’s required, meaning there is no need for a hot water tank to store the hot water, making it a great space saving option for many homes.
Heat Only Boilers
Regular boilers, also known as heat-only boilers, as the name suggests only provide heat for your central heating system, however, they can be used together with a hot water tank and a cold-water feed to provide hot water in the property. Many traditional UK home use this type of setup.
System boilers are similar to heat only boilers, however, they don’t require a cold-water feed as many of the elements required are already built into the boiler. Because of this a system boiler is a great space saving option, compared to a heat only boiler.
When it comes to fuelling your boiler there are 2 main options: gas and oil. Gas boilers are fuelled by natural gas, delivered via the mains gas pipe and are used the vast majority of UK homes. Gas boilers are available in a range of options, including, combi gas boilers, system gas boilers and heat only gas boilers.
If a gas-fuelled boiler isn’t an option for you and your home, then an oil fuelled boiler is a great alternative. Oil boilers operating in a very similar way to gas boilers, however they draw oil from a tank that is usually located within close proximity to the property.
