Different Types of Boilers

Conventional Boilers

Conventional boilers utilise a storage tank to supply hot water. The water is heated via a heat exchanger and can supply gallons of hot water at one time. Once the stored hot water runs out, there may be a delay in supply as the tank refills and the water is re-heated.

Conventional boilers tend to require more space than combination boilers as the hot water cylinder requires connection with a cold water storage tank that will typically be placed in the loft. This also means that installation is often more complicated than with a combination boiler.

Older models of conventional boilers tended to be less energy efficient, but advances have been made and newer models can be adjusted to match the specific heating requirements of your home.

There is a huge range of conventional boilers available including very compact systems that can easily be fitted into most modern kitchens.

 

A conventional boiler system can have two water tanks in the loft, a large 'cold water storage tank' and a small 'feed and expansion tank'. The 'cold water storage tank' draws water from the cold water mains to refill.

Water from the storage tank feeds cold water down to the cylinder (normally in the airing cupboard). The condensing central heating boiler will heat the cylinder, this then enables the cylinder to release gallons of hot water to taps throughout the house. A pump will also circulate hot water via the pipes to the radiators.

 

The benefits

Faster flow rates than a combination boiler.

Multiple tap operation.

Use of an airing cupboard.

Backup electrical hot water heating via immersion.

Heating and hot water together.

Solar compatible.

Things to consider

You will need space for a large water tank in your loft.

It will take time for the water to heat up.

You'll have limited amount of hot water - as it takes time to re-fill and heat.

 

Combination Boilers

Combination boilers, or “combi” boilers, supply water directly from the mains without the need for a storage tank. Combination boilers supply hot water on demand or “instantaneously” in unlimited supply.

Combination boilers are ideal for smaller properties where space is at a premium and are typically more suitable to properties with just one bathroom.

Combi boilers also provide water at mains pressure, meaning you can enjoy a strong, hot shower without the need for an additional shower pump, this is of course providing there is adequate “pressure” and “flow” of water at your home. If you are considering converting from a conventional boiler to a combi system you engineer will be able to check and make sure this type of system is suitable for your home.

Combination boilers include modern, state of the art technologies including fully condensing and ECO modes, both of which improve your control over water heating by maintaining boiler temperature whilst in standby mode.

 

System Boilers

A system boiler heats your central heating system directly and produces hot water for your cylinder.

 

A system boiler, just like a regular (conventional) boiler works on the principle of stored hot water. However, a system boiler differs from a regular boiler in some important respects.

 

Firstly, many of the major individual components of the heating and hot water system are built into a system boiler, which means that installation is quicker, neater, easier and more efficient.

 

Secondly, the hot water is pumped from the system boiler through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, resulting in a fast response and more economical running costs. The system boiler removes the need for a feed and expansion cistern.

 

Alternative Funding

If You do not receive the benefits listed above or your existing boiler does not qualify, you could still improve your heating system with little or even no upfront cost, Cash backs are also available to all householders and even businesses.

The alternative scheme will assess your existing heating system and identify if realistic savings could be made, the scheme could then provide you with a grant to cover up to 100% of the cost of the improvements which is then re-paid by the anticipated savings that are made on your fuel bills.

This is a real alternative if you a real alternative if you need or are looking for a new boiler.

Access to the funding is usually easier and credits checks less stringent than typical loans.
