WHAT KIND OF BOILER INSTALLATION DO I NEED?

COMBINATION BOILERS IN St Albans

A Combi boiler provides an unlimited, instant hot water supply, in addition to your central heating needs.

Combi boilers are fantastic for smaller properties, such as flats or small houseshomes, where space is at a premium. A combination boiler is very energy efficient and cost-effective as water is only heated when you needit and not heated and stored.

The disadvantage to combination boilers is that when there are more than two taps being used at the same time, there is a noticeable difference in the flow rate of the hot water as the water comes directly from the mains water supply. 

SYSTEM BOILERS IN St Albans

This boiler installation only acts as a heat source, this can either be used to heat your radiators or under-floor heating or to heat the water in your hot water cylinder.

They are similar to conventional boilers, with the difference being that they contain other components, such as a central heating pump, pressure relief valve, and expansion vessel.

System boilers, similar to combination boilers, are installed as part of a “sealed” heating system, meaning, if also fitted with an unvented cylinder, there are no need for any tanks in your loft.

CONVENTIONAL BOILERS IN St Albans

A Conventional boiler installation also acts only as a heat source,as with system boilers, however, they have no additional components in them.

They are often installed in a ‘classic’ type of heating system, where there may be a cylinder, along with pumps to boost water pressure to baths and showers.

These types of boilers are best for older heating systems, where increased pressures used in a ‘sealed’ system may cause issues with leaks etc.
