Boiler types explained
Combi boilers are ideal for smaller homes where you don’t have space for a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the loft.
System boilers suit homes with two or more bathrooms. Although they require a hot water cylinder, they don’t take up any loft space. During busy mornings, system boilers allow you to run multiple showers at once, meaning no more arguments over who showers first. Some of the main components of the heating system are built into the boiler, making it quick and easy to install too.
Regular boilers require both a hot water cylinder and water storage tank in the loft. They suit properties with low water pressure or many old radiators, as well as homes where a lot of water is used at once.
