There are a few different types of modern boilers on the market in which you can choose from – deciding between them can be difficult. The boiler currently in your home is more than likely a combi boiler, just like the name suggests these boilers combine a water heater and central heating system in one package. This means you don’t need an external water tank.
A system boiler does require an external tank, however this only stores hot water and all of the heating is carried out by the boiler itself.
The third type of boiler you may come across is a standard boiler. These boilers need hot and cold water tanks and are usually more suited to older homes with existing heating and storage systems.
The best type of new boiler is the one that meets your requirements and fully understanding your own requirements can be difficult.
