What is the best central heating boiler system for you?

Changing your boiler can be a difficult time, it certainly presents one question “which is the right choice to make”
At Morgans Plumbing and Heating we can help by giving you the best advice and in the meantime here is a lowdown of what is out there for you to choose from.

Combination (combi) boiler systems

Over half of homes in the UK have a combi boiler and they are a space saving idea it is both a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, combined together within one compact unit. Therefore, a separate hot water cylinder is not required, and this helps you to save space within your home.

One of the biggest benefits of a combi boiler is the pressure it can deliver for your hot water, if you want a power shower it can deliver the water at mains pressure without needing an additional pump. Overall it can save you time on money with the product itself, installation, servicing and a tank is not required in the roof space.

Conventional gravity fed systems

Traditionally a gravity fed central heating system was the most common system installed in UK housing, this is where you have a tank in the roof space space and the pressure created is from the drop. Fewer of these are now installed as the combination boiler and high pressure systems are superior and installation is far easier.

A gravity fed boiler is most common on older homes and you may find it more cost effective to have a total change to a new boiler with modern technology providing a fuel efficient system then a repair or service.  You will find some manufacturers refer to gravity fed boilers as  “open vent boilers”, “heat only boilers”, “conventional boilers” or “regular boilers”.  These system boilers have additional built in components including a pump which makes installation easier than for a heat only boiler.

Unfortunately the water pressure can be quite poor with a gravity fed boiler meaning a pump is required especially in flats or if the shower is on the top floor of the house and the tank is just above it in the roof space. These tanks which are installed in lofts and roof spaces can also become vulnerable to freezing in winter which can create water leaks.

High pressure systems

If you need lots of hot water and at high pressure this is a system which could interest you, it  operates at mains water pressure and uses a stored hot water system. They are though usually more expensive to run as you have the added expense oh a hot water tank and installation is more difficult and depending upon the home may require careful planning.
