Combi Boiler, System Boiler or Regular Boiler: Which to Install?

In order to decide which type of boiler is right for you, it is important you know a little about each of the options. To help you out, we have created a guide explaining the most common types of boiler installs- combi, system and conventional. This post is a good start point to find out some main pros and cons!

Combi boilers

Combi boilers are becoming very popular throughout the UK, as they are such a practical option. They are the most compact out of all three options, only requiring a boiler unit and no other components! This makes them perfect for small homes, as very little space is required. They heat water using your mains, heating water as and when you need it. This makes them a very economical option, as hot water is never stored. The only downside is that they struggle to meet a high demand for hot water, which is something to consider.

System boilers

System boilers are a good middle ground between the other options. They require slightly more components than a combi boiler, but still less than a conventional boiler. Unlike combi boilers, they can easily meet a high demand for hot water. As a result, they are compatible with a huge range of homes. They require a water storage cylinder, which must be well insulated in order to stop excess heat from escaping. If not insulated, you may find yourself heating water that then needs to be reheated- costing you money.

Conventional boilers

Conventional boilers require a boiler, two water tanks and a storage cylinder. They require the most space out of the three, so you need to have a large home to accommodate this option. However, they are the best option to choose if you have an older radiator system, as they offer lower pressure than other boiler types. As with system boilers, they can easily meet a high demand for hot water, making them a great option for large homes.
