There are four main types of gas boilers available. Which you choose depends on a number of factors, such as the size of your house and your specific hot water requirements.
Combi (or combination) boilers are the UK's most popular type of boiler for gas central heating and domestic hot water production.
Easy to install and highly reliable, gas combi boilers are economical on both energy and space. Water is heated instantaneously on opening a hot tap or turning on a shower, so hot water storage tanks or cylinders are not necessary.
Heat only gas boilers work in conjunction with a hot water storage cylinder and cold-water top-up tanks in the loft to provide both central heating and hot water.
Unlike regular gas boilers, a system boiler pumps hot water straight through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder. By reducing the amount of time it takes for the home to heat up, running costs are lowered.
A back boiler is a small, compact boiler that sits behind an electric fire in the chimney breast and works in conjunction with a hot water storage cylinder to provide both central heating and hot water.
