When you come to replace your current heating system there is a plethora of information out there and it can be very confusing! But which to choose? Here are some pointers that may help with your decision.
Combination or better know as a Combi boiler?
A combi (or combination) boiler is an ingenious space-saving idea and an increasingly popular choice in UK homes.
A combi boiler is both a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, combined within one compact unit. Therefore, no separate hot water cylinder is required, offering space saving within the property.
Further benefits of a combi boiler include hot water being delivered through your taps or shower at mains pressure. So you can enjoy powerful showering without the need for a pump!
Another combi boiler benefit is a shorter installation time as no water tank is required.
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.
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.
Also, 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.
Both systems will need a time clock and thermostat installed if you do not have one already so that you can control your heating & hot water as & when required. When thinking of this do you want an easy use system or do you like your gadgets? Do you want a standard install or do you want wireless & Bluetooth?
