Combi boiler: A wall mounted appliance that gives you instantaneous hot water and also heats your central heating without the need for storage tanks and a hot water cylinder.
System Boiler: A system boiler is an appliance that directly heats your central heating and generates hot water through a hot water cylinder, whether it’s an unvented stainless steel cylinder or a traditional copper cylinder. Most of the important parts of the heating system, such as the pump and expansion vessel are built in on a system boiler.
Regular Boiler: These are also known as open vent, conventional or heat only boilers. They provide heating and hot water in conjunction with a cylinder. You will generally have cold water storage tanks in the loft . Most traditional systems used conventional boilers and they can be wall hung or floor standing. Check to see if you have a cylinder in the airing cupboard and tanks in the loft. Still not sure? Need to talk to someone? Don't worry, call your local branch here.
Bigger houses have more radiators, bedrooms and bathrooms and so need a bigger boiler plus you have more possibilities on hot water usage.
The more bathrooms you have the more hot water that you will possibly use so we want to match the perfect boiler to give you all the hot water that you need and never run out. Combination boilers never run out of hot water and are much more efficient.
You cannot use an existing flue and you may want to move the boiler. The most common flue arrangement is horizontal or straight out of the wall. The best way to check is where does the flue finish on the outside of the property, through the roof is vertical.
We have loads of types of customers and they buy boilers for different reasons. With all warranties you need to get the boiler serviced every year and installed correctly from the start. If you are on a budget and need a boiler for a rental then look at our robust two year warranty boilers but if you are looking for piece of mind and do not want to buy any expensive parts over the boilers life then go for a longer warranty. We cater for all budgets and warranties and this is often reflected in the price. Just make sure you buy the best pound for pound boiler not necessarily the most expensive. It is Mr Central Heating's job to get you the best deal.
