There are different types of boilers, each suited to specific needs and certain styles of homes. We understand that it can be a little confusing, so we’re here to explain the key differences and features in no-nonsense language, plus one of our experienced surveyors will discuss your options when they visit your home.
When it comes to conventional boilers (also known as regular, traditional or heat only boilers), they’re usually best suited to homes that have a traditional central heating and hot water system already in place. This will be connected to a separate hot water cylinder, which is often in an airing cupboard, whilst the cold water storage tank that feeds into it will be in the loft.
There will also be an F&E (feed and expansion) tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system. The result is a large system that takes up a lot of space, but which also offers benefits that other types of boilers don’t.
If you have a conventional boiler and want to upgrade to a system boiler or combi boiler, it may not be possible. If this is the case, it will be because the radiator system is an older variety that isn’t capable of coping with the higher water pressure that newer systems send through them.
However, ProTech specialises in installing the latest models of conventional boilers, so there’s a very good chance that we can upgrade your system and improve its performance and efficiency.
To give a clearer comparison of conventional boilers to other types, below are some advantages and disadvantages.
Personally, we believe that the pros outweigh the cons in the majority of scenarios, but it’s totally up to you whether this type of boiler is installed in your home.
