BOILERS

Conventional (traditional) Boilers:

A conventional system has two water tanks in the loft, a large ‘cold water storage tank’ and small ‘feed and expansion tank’. The ‘cold water storage tank’ draws water from the cold water mains to refill. Water from the storage tank feeds cold water down to the cylinder (normally in the airing cupboard). The central heating boiler will heat the cylinder and converts cold water to hot; this then enables the cylinder to release gallons of hot water to taps throughout the house.

The ‘feed and expansion tank’ is usually smaller and maintains the correct level of water in the heating system. It also allows for expansion of the water in the radiators and pipework when it gets hot.

A real benefit of this system is that showers, taps and running baths can be drawn in any room at the same time; not all systems can do that.

If the cylinder does run out of hot water it will have a fast recovery rate of 25 to 30 minutes (with a new boiler and cylinder).

Combination Boilers:

Combi boilers are now the best selling boiler type for gas central heating in Britain. They’ve been proven steadfast, reliable and tough. Some boilers will settle snugly into an average cupboard, if not a cupboard could be built around the boiler after installation.

They are economical to run and can certainly produce an endless supply of hot water.

There is no storage cylinder to heat first or to run cold. There will be no cold water storage tank to find space for and no feed and expansion tank needed.

Condensing Boilers:

If you’d like to really reduce emissions and your gas bill you may want to consider a High Efficiency Condensing Boiler (around 91% efficient).

Initially, a little more expensive, but you’ll gain in the long term when you notice that your fuel bill has been reduced substantially, in some homes more than one third.

These boilers need to have a lot of thought when it comes to the position of the boiler and the flue; this is because there is a large amount of ‘Pluming’ (steam / water vapour) which comes out of the flue outside. We can survey your property and help you to decide the best place for your condensing boiler
