While there are several boilers on the market from a variety of different brands, finding the best boiler for your home can be a difficult decision. Currently there are three main types of domestic boilers; combi boilers, system boilers and conventional boilers. When it comes to choosing the best type of boiler for your home, there are plenty of different factors to consider including: number of people, type of home, water pressure etc.
Combi-boilers are the most affordable residential boiler for most households. They control both hot water and central heating, and their energy efficiency makes them the unit of choice for environmentally-conscious homeowners. Heating water directly from the mains and whenever a tap is turned on, you can get unlimited hot water whenever you need it. There’s no need for a cylinder or water tank, saving you space in your home and cutting down the installation time.
Combi-boilers don’t require a cold-water tank or a hot water cylinder which helps to save space. That means they’re an ideal option if you live in a flat or a smaller household. Combi-boilers also heat up the water directly from the mains meaning you get unlimited hot water without waiting.
Do you have more than one bathroom in your home? If so a system boiler could be the solution.
Conventional boilers takes up more space than other solutions and are far less efficient with hot water not on demand.
