Which type of boiler is right for your home?
So, how can you make the right decision when it comes to choosing a boiler? Well, there are a number of things to consider, including:
- Your existing boiler system- it can be easier to swap a like for like boiler than to change to a different type of boiler. However, if your existing boiler is not effectively serving your home, you should look for a boiler that will be better suited to your requirements.
- The number of bathrooms- if your home as multiple bathrooms that are likely to be in use at the same time, it could be a good idea to choose a conventional boiler. This type of boiler uses hot water storage tanks so more than one tap can be in use at one time, without a drop in water pressure or temperature. This is something a combination boiler cannot do.
- Lack of storage- if you don’t have a lot of room for storing hot water tanks, you should opt for a combination boiler. This is the smallest type of boiler and can be installed in almost any room in your home.
- Water pressure- if water pressure is important to you, a combination boiler will, in general, provide better water pressure, because the water is coming directly from the mains. Although you will need to wait a minute or two for the water to reach the desired temperature.
