A conventional condensing boiler system may have two water tanks in the loft and a cylinder in the airing cupboard. The boiler heats the cylinder and radiators in your house. Conventional boilers are also compatible with the latest renewable technologies such as solar thermal which could let you generate up to 60% of your hot water for free.*
Combination, or combi boilers are economical to run and give you the benefit of always having hot water. They heat water direct from the mains so there’s no waiting for a cylinder to heat up. They are an ideal choice in small homes where there may not be room for a hot water tank.
There are a range of alternative heating systems available that offer varying different benefits, including better fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions, to generating an income through the Government’s Feed-In Tariff.
