Gas Boiler Installations

Generally speaking, most gas boilers in the UK are condensing boilers; in fact, since 2005 all new boilers that are installed must be condensing boilers. There are a number of different types that are used in properties all over the UK and they include standard, combination (or combi) and system boilers.

Condensing Boilers

Condensing boilers are not a “type” of boiler, instead they refer to the method with which the boiler heats the water for the home. The main attribute of a condensing boiler is the fact that it heats water in the first chamber, then in a second chamber excess heat is trapped and used to heat water coming back into the boiler. Normally this excess heat would escape and go unused, but with a condensing boiler this will not happen so less fuel is needed to heat the system.

Combination Boilers

These are the most commonly installed gas boilers in the UK. They do not require a separate water tank to be fitted and the units themselves take up very little space. Water is heated immediately as it is needed, but this means that the boiler may struggle to provide the right water pressure to more than one tap at a time; because of this, these kind of boilers are best suited to smaller homes.

System Boilers

This kind of boiler has a water cylinder that is usually located in an airing cupboard instead of a loft, making them ideal for houses where loft space is at a premium. This kind of boiler needs time to heat a full tank of water, but then the water can be available at the right pressure to more than one location at a time.

Standard Boilers

Also known as conventional boilers, these units have both a cylinder and a water tank. Like with the system boiler, the water requires time to be heated, then the hot water can be stored until it is needed.

It is important that all boilers are installed by fully qualified engineers and our team at Home Heating are not only qualified but they appear on the Gas Safe Register, so you know that you are in safe hands.
