Types of boilers
Traditional boilers, also referred to as heat-only boilers, are appropriate for larger homes with numerous radiators and taps which use hot water at the same time. They take up more area than other types of boilers because they need a cold water storage tank and a hot water tank. Yet, traditional boilers are the best choice for large houses since they can simultaneously heat water from several taps.
Benefits of conventional boilers:
- Suitable for larger homes.
- Suitable for homes with many radiators and taps, that use hot water at the same time.
- Requires a cold water storage tank, in addition to a hot water tank.
Larger homes with many bathrooms should use system boilers, also referred to as sealed system boilers. Without the need for a loft tank, they provide a continual and on-demand supply of hot water to any number of rooms. As they don't require a hot water tank and instead heat water directly from the mains, they are more energy-efficient than traditional boilers.
