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.

What our customers say

I would highly recommend Chris and his team. They are very professional and nothing is too much trouble. They fitted a new downstairs toilet and checked with me at every stage about fixtures and fittings and it was completed to a very high standard. I would highly recommend them. Thank you, a very happy customer!

What our customers say

A big thank you to Chris and the Truscon team. They transformed our 1970’s small toilet room and separate bathroom into a seemingly more spacious modern bathroom.Their works included building works, plastering walls and ceilings, tiling, plumbing and electrics all done in a highly professional manner. The works were started and completed at the agreed times and dates. We are very pleased with the results!
