Combi boilers

A combi boiler produces both the central heating and the hot water in a single compact unit. The water is heated directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, this is ideal for smaller properties that don't have room for a hot water tank or cold water storage in the roof space.

They are very cost efficient as only the water that you need is heated and providing you have good mains pressure, you will receive this mains pressure without the need for a separate shower pump.

  • Compact size means they are ideal for smaller properties
  • No need for a hot water or a cold water tank
  • Ideal solution if you are considering a loft conversion
  • No risk of freezing pipework in the loft
  • The system is pressurised

System boilers

A system boiler does need a hot water cylinder.The advantage of the system boiler is that the majority of the components needed to make the system work are included in the boiler which are all covered by the extended guarantee. There is no need for a cold water tank in the loft which also makes it a good choice if you are planning a loft conversion.

These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as lower energy bills.

  • Ideal for homes with more than one bathroom
  • Constant supply of hot water to all the taps in the house
  • Built in components make it easier to install
  • The system is pressurised

Regular boilers

Regular boilers are a traditional (heat only/conventional) heating system, ideally suited to homes that already have a hot water cylinder. A cold water tank in the loft is also necessary to re-fill the hot water cylinder and also a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.

  • Perfect for homes with two or more bathrooms
  • Ideal for homes with low water pressure
  • Compatible for homes with solar water heating for lower energy costs
