Boilers

Deciding which boiler will make an efficient and practical fit with your home and lifestyle can be confusing. The images below show the main system types, how they work, their advantages and what kind of homes they work best in.

If your new boiler is going to be fitted with your existing system, please consider the cleanliness of your existing pipework and radiators as this could cause damage to your new boiler. For more information contact us.

  • Combi Boiler

    Combi Boiler

    A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.

    They are also very cost-effective and energy-efficient as water is heated instantly rather than being heated and then stored in a cylinder. An added benefit is that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, which means that you could get a powerful shower without the need for a separate pump.

    • Compact sizes make combi boilers perfect for smaller properties.
    • Ideal where there is little or no loft space.
    • No need for a hot water cylinder allows increased living space.
    • No cold water storage tank frees up a loft for conversion.
    • No risk of loft pipework freezing Less pipework in the home makes installation typically cheaper.
  • System Boiler

    System Boiler

    System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself, making it quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft, so it can be an option in a home with little or no loft space or where the space is earmarked for a conversion.

    These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as lower energy bills.

    • Ideal for homes with more than one bathroom
    • Constant supply of hot water to any number of taps at the same time
    • No need for a loft tank, freeing up space and eliminating worries about leaks or frost damage
    • Economical to run Built-in components makes installation quicker and neater
  • Regular Boiler

    Regular Boiler

    Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.

    A regular boiler may be the best option for replacing an existing boiler if the property has an older radiator system, as it might not be able to cope with the higher water pressure that is delivered by system or combi boilers.

    • Perfect for homes where a lot of hot water is used at the same time
    • Ideal where there are two or more bathrooms
    • A good option in areas where water pressure is low
    • Compatible with solar water heating systems for a lower carbon footprint and lower energy costs

  • Excellent customer service, efficient and reliable. Completed 1st fix gas/plumbing on my new build property and installed full central heating system.

  • Our old boiler has been replaced with a much smaller and far more efficient boiler superbly fitted by 100% Gas. They are an extremely efficient, well organised and extremely professional company. Delivery of the new boiler was timed to coincide with Paul's arrival and the old boiler was taken away straight after job was completed.

    Ron, Warrington , Cheshire.
  • Our heating system used to be noisy, temperamental and would require frequent bleeding of radiator valves. It was either too hot or too cold. Now, thanks to Paul, it is now working as intended. It provides us with a warm, comfortable and quiet environment to live in. It also gives me peace of mind knowing that when it goes off, it will restart and tick over as smoothly as a Swiss watch.

  • Paul has recently changed my radiators and I cannot thank him enough. He worked hard , made little mess and tidied up as well as arranging for the old radiators to be taken away. I felt completely at ease with him in the house and Smudge liked him too.
