Several factors will usually influence the kind of boiler you buy. You will want to mull over factors such as energy efficiency and options for renewable energy use. To help you decide which boiler is right for you, we’ve prepared this small guide:
- For example, with certain customer habits such a family who have lots of showers at the same time (around the house), the professional opinion is usually offered of changing to a system boiler with unvented hot water tank, provided there is good water pressure.
- If your home has older radiators or pipework cover in screed, it is better to choose or remain with an open vented, heat only boiler – for very important safety reasons.
- For consumers with financial constraints, the usual recommendations are to replace their existing boiler with the same type of boiler in the same location. For low maintenance costs, the installation of a combi boiler with a 10-year warranty/guarantee from the manufacturer is recommended.
