How to Pick the Right Boiler for your Home?

There are many different options to consider when purchasing a new boiler for your home, such as the size of the property, the type of water pressure, and the number of rooms. We’ll guide you through the most popular boilers and their benefits in this article so you can pick the best boiler for your home. 

Combi Boiler

When it comes to boilers for residential houses, combi boilers are the most popular choice because they are cost-effective and have one of the best efficiency ratings. They are energy efficient and popular among environmentally aware homeowners because they can control hot water and central heating. Additionally, they can help save space in your home because you won’t need a water tank.

Oil Boiler

Oil boilers are also a viable option in some rural areas of the UK, particularly where gas grids are unavailable. Heating oil appears to be a popular choice in these areas. In most cases, an oil-fired boiler is used to heat the water, and central heating is provided via radiators. Furthermore, hot water is supplied through the taps. Although combi boilers may appear to be the only realistic option for heating your home, oil-fired central heating is still in use and is increasing. This is due to the fact that oil boilers are more cost-effective due to their lower tariff. 

Conventional Boilers

Traditional boilers, also known as conventional boilers, consist of a cylinder and a water storage tank. These boilers can provide significant amounts of hot water to several bathrooms, making them an excellent alternative for homes with multiple bathrooms. It’s worth noting that a traditional boiler is best suited for homes with an existing traditional heating system, as your plumbing won’t need to be altered, making installation quicker.

System Boilers

A system boiler is a good option for you if your home has more than one bathroom. This type of boiler is easy to install as the main components are built into the system, however, they do require hot water storage but not a water tank. No water tank means you don’t have to worry about damages or leaks. System boilers have a constant supply of hot water and are designed to save space in your home.
