Combination (Combi Boiler)
Advantages of a Combi Boiler
- Space Saving-– A Combi Boiler can be fitted into a standard-sized kitchen cupboard
- No Extra Water– No large water storage cylinders or tanks meaning less risk of water damage in your home
- No Frozen Pipes -As there are fewer pieces to the boiler, you have a much lower risk of your pipes freezing and being left without hot water
- Save Time and Money – A combi boiler system is typically quicker and easier to install than standard boilers.
Possible Disadvantages of a Combi System
- Possible Pressure Drop – If you have a very large, busy household with multiple bathrooms, you could lose water pressure
- One Unit – All of the heating takes place within one central unit, meaning when the hot water is turned on, the central heating will be paused
A System boiler eliminate the need for a tank in the loft, that would otherwise be needed with a Regular Heat Only boiler.
Advantages of a System Boiler
- Great for high hot water demand – A system boiler uses a large tank of stored water meaning you can use multiple hot water sources simultaneously without a reduction in pressure. This makes it ideal for busy family homes and homes with more than one bathroom
- Stronger Water Pressure – As the water supply is delivered directly from the mains, the water coming out of your taps will be at a higher pressure than Regular Heat Only boilers, which rely on gravity to send water down the pipes.
- No need for a cold water feed tank – Save space in your loft as System boilers don’t require a cold water tank as they can be used with pressurised cylinders.
Disadvantages of System Boiler
- Takes up room – System boilers don’t need a cold water tank they still take up more room than a combi boiler. This is because they require a hot water cylinder
- Hot water is not unlimited – The amount of hot water you have is limited to the size of cylinder you have installed. When this runs out you will have to wait for the cylinder to recover and heat the new incoming water.
- Heat Loss – A hot water tank can lose heat, causing it to be inefficient especially if the tank is not insulated correctly.
Advantages Of A Heat Only Boiler
- Maintain Pressure – They still work well even if your mains pressure is low and you will still be able to get hot water even if someone is running the shower and the kitchen taps at the same time
- Simple Design – They’re easy to maintain as they have a simple design
Heat Only / Regular / Conventional
Disadvantages Of A Heat Only Boiler
- Take up space – Cold water storage tanks are generally situated in the loft. They can be used to supply the hot and cold water taps on the bath. They can also act as a Feed and Expansion tank (F+E) for the heating syste
- Not as efficient – Conventional boilers aren’t as efficient as combi boilers – there will be heat loss as hot water is stored, usually in a copper cylinder
- All gone – Your hot water can completely run out and will take time to reheat
