    If you’re thinking about replacing or getting a new boiler, it’s important to know the different types of new boiler, and how they work.

    The size, type and make of boiler can all affect how much energy you use, as well how your home and hot water is heated.

    When it comes to what type of boiler, there are three main types to consider:

    • Combi
    • Conventional
    • System

    We have information on conventional and combi boilers to explain the differences.

    System boilers are very similar to conventional boilers.

    If you’d like to know the differences, our boiler adviser can explain them to you.

    Combi boilers

    Combi, or combination boilers as they are known are the UK’s most popular type of boiler. They can be an economical option, as combi boilers only heat the water you use.

    Why get a new combi boiler?

    • You get unlimited hot water whenever you need it because it heats water straight from the incoming water mains supply.
    • You don’t need a cold water storage tank or hot water cylinder, so you save space. That means they work particularly well if you live in a smaller house or flat with no loft space.
    • They’re usually quicker to install because they’ve got fewer boiler parts than other heating systems.

    Things to consider

    • If you use more than one tap at a time, it could reduce the flow of hot water at the outlet.
    • But that does also depend on the strength of your mains water pressure and boiler output.
    • Your water might take a few seconds to heat up.

    Conventional boilers

    Otherwise known as regular or heat-only boilers. They heat the hot water to your radiators and your hot water storage cylinder.

     Why get a new conventional boiler?

    • They send water to lots of taps at the same time, through the cylinder without the flow of water getting weaker.
    • You have a cold water tank, and a hot water cylinder as well.
    • We can fit an electrical immersion heater to the hot water cylinder at the same time we install your new boiler.
    • Then you’ve got a back-up, just in case your boiler breaks down.
    • They particularly suit larger homes that have more than one bathroom.

    Things to consider

    • You need space for us to install a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank too, which we usually put in the loft.
    • You need to decide ahead of time when you want hot water.
    • There are controls so you can programme your boiler to heat the water in the cylinder, so you have hot water when you need it.
    • You only have as much hot water as your cylinder can hold.
    • So if it runs out you’ll need to wait for it to heat up again which can be around 20 minutes depending on the type of heat recovery.
