Conventional Boilers

Requiring a water cylinders and two water tanks, conventional boilers have the most components. This typically means that they are a lot better for properties with a lot of free space. In addition to this, conventional boilers are also great for larger homes with a greater amount of people living in them. 

The Benefits: 

  • Conventional boilers are great for meeting higher demands for hot water.
  • Residents of a property with a conventional boiler can use multiple appliances simultaneously without it affecting the water pressure.
  • Conventional boilers don't need good mains pressure.

System Boilers

Moving on to system boilers; these types of boilers are to some extent, more practical than conventional boilers. Why? Because they don't require two water tanks. So, for smaller homes, this may be the answer as it can also meet higher demands for hot water. 

The Benefits: 

  • Multiple appliances can be used simultaneously without affecting the water pressure with a system boiler.
  • System boilers do not require loft space for water tanks. 
  • System boilers can meet higher demands for hot water with ease.

Combination Boilers

The final boiler type we'd like to discuss is a combination boiler. As they operate from the mains, combination boilers only require a boiler unit. Also, whilst they take up very little space in your property, they will struggle to meet a higher demand for hot water; this means that they're are good for smaller homes. 

The Benefits: 

  • Combination boilers require very little space.
  • Combination boilers are also very efficient as water isn't stored. 
  • With a combination boiler, water is heated as and when it is needed.
