Get the right boiler for you

Is it time for a new boiler, are you thinking about making an upgrade? Picking the right boiler is very important, you want the best boiler for your home. There are several different types of boilers to consider. First, you should consider the amount of hot water your house needs and how much space is available.


Combination Boilers

If you live in a small flat or house with one or two bedrooms or your business is in a smaller building, your best option for hot water and heating is likely a combi boiler.

They allow owners to heat their homes and water quickly on demand by combining central heating with domestic hot water in one device. This means they are space-efficient because there is no water tank. When hot water is needed, a combination boiler stops pumping water to the central heating system and diverts power to heat the water.


System Boilers

System boilers are suited for larger properties; they use a separate cylinder for storing hot water. The large reservoir of water means there is enough heated water to meet the demands of a busy household or a business with many employees.

However, a system boiler has a higher pressure that may not be suitable if your home has low water pressure or an older radiator system.


Conventional Boilers

Also known as heat-only boilers are often installed in larger properties when a large volume of hot water is needed throughout the building at the same time. They are usually comprised of a hot water cylinder and a cold-water storage tank and are kept in lofts and basements.

System and combi boilers can cause damage to buildings with older hot water and central heating systems because they operate at a higher pressure. Therefore, a conventional boiler may need to be installed instead.

Factors to consider 


Energy Efficiency – A more efficient boiler will help to reduce your energy bill as it will use less fuel to heat your home. We recommend looking for a boiler with a high SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers) rating, which indicates how efficiently the boiler converts fuel into heat.

Fuel Type – There are multiple options for fuel including gas, oil, propane and electric. Gas is the most common and usually most cost-effective choice for homeowners. However, your choice depends on availability, cost and environmental considerations.

Install and Maintenance – Some boilers are more complicated to install than others for example Combi boilers are pretty simple but conventional boilers often require more space and a more complex installation.

Budget – When considering buying a new boiler you should factor in the installation cost as well as the initial cost of the boiler. You should also include operating costs such as fuel and maintenance.

Warranty and brand – Before making a decision we recommend researching boiler brands and models. Also, factor in the warranty. We are Worcester Bosch accredited installers.
