Types of boilers - which boiler is best for your home

Combination boilers (Combi)
Combination boilers (or combi boilers as they are more commonly called) are the most common boiler in the UK.  They provide the convenience of instant hot water on demand and heating with no need for water tanks or cylindersat any time.

Pros

  • you get unlimited heat and hot water when you need it
  • there's no need for a cylinder in your aring cupboard
  • there's no need for a tank in you loft
  • they don't take up much space

Cons

  • the water pressure might be reduced if you need hot water from more that one tap at a time

Heat only (Conventional) boilers
Heat only or conventional boilers also known as open vented or regular boilers - have both a cylinder and a tank.  Hot water stored via a cylinder normally housed in an airing cupboard or boiler room and tanks located in the loft, heating is supplied pumped frm the boiler via a circulating pump and valves normally in your aring cupboard.

Pros

  • you get hot water from multiple taps at the same time
  • you can have backup hot water from an electric immersion heater

Cons

  • the hot water can run out and you'll have to wait for it to reheat
  • you need to find room for the cylinder and tank

System boilers
System boilers also known as sealed system, just like a regular (conventional) boiler works on the principle of using a storage hot water cyilnder but no tanks in the loft as the heating and hot water systems are pressurised. Installation is quicker, neater, easier and more efficient. Faster heat output response and more economical running costs.

Pros

  • there's no need for a tank in your loft
  • you can get hot water from multiple taps at the same time
  • you can have backup hot water from an electric immersion heater

Cons

  • the hot water can run out and you'll have to wait for it to reheat
  • you need to find room for the cylinder somewhere

Condensing boilers
Condensing boilers arn't strictly a boiler type - instead it's an attribute your boiler can have, e.g. you can have a condensing combi boiler or condensing conventional boiler.

Condensing boilers are very energy efficient because they capture some of the heat which would escape from the flue of a non-condensing boiler and re-use it.  This means they get more heatfro mthe same amount of fuel, which will save you money on your heating bills.

All new boilers have had to be condensing since 2005.

Energy-efficient boilers
All new boilers are energy-efficient - since 2010 all new boilers must be A-rated for energy efficiency, or at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency rating system for boilers is called SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK).  All boilers are assessed and given a rating to help you pick a boiler that is energy-efficient, or see how efficient your existing boiler is.

What our customers say……

Paul and Carol Machen

The first thing I should say is that Truscon undertook a very complicated renovation project that many builders were simply incapable of doing. Chris and his excellent and friendly team not only took it on but did absolutely everything that was required in a highly organised, professional and skilful manner with due observance to current building regulations and careful consideration regarding our needs and requirements. Truscon, refreshingly, have the highest regard for customer care and Continue Reading
