WHAT IS A CONDENSING BOILER ?
Old, conventional boilers have an efficiency rate up to 60%, which means that they convert 60% or less of their fuel into heat, while the efficiency of new condensing boilers can be above 90% (A-rated). This means huge energy savings and significant cuts on your CO2 emissions and gas bills.
There are 2 types of high-efficiency condensing boiler:
- System boiler: heats your hot water through a hot water cylinder
- Combination (combi) boiler: gives you instant hot water without the need for a cylinder
Each type delivers all the benefits of high-efficiency technology.
WHAT IS A COMBINATION BOILER ?
Additional benefits of having a combi boiler include significant saving on your gas bills and the fact that your hot water comes from the mains pressure so you can enjoy showering without needing a noisy pump.
WHAT IS A SYSTEM BOILER ?
System boilers operate on a sealed system like the combination boiler. As the system is not affected by mains water pressure, they can operate in areas where combi boilers cannot (like lofts). System boilers are usually compact as all the major components like the pump and the diverter valve are built into the boiler.
A system boiler is a great choice for a larger home or family with hot water needs that can’t be met by a combi boiler. You will need a tank in the airing cupboard.
