Combination Boiler Systems - Things to consider

Combination Boiler Systems are often referred to as a ‘combi boiler’ this type of installation heats hot water as you need it, without the need for a hot water storage tank.

gravity fed system boilers

System Boilers - Things to consider

Gravity Fed Boiler Systems are often referred to as ‘open vent boilers’ 'heat only boilers' 'conventional boilers' or 'regular boilers' this type of installation requires a hot water storage tank and also a cold water, and expansion tank usually fitted in the loft, the hot water storage tank will keep water hot for when it is needed. These types of systems are less popular now as they need more components than newer systems. The system relies on gravity for water pressure, so if your bathroom is upstairs on the same level as your boiler, unless you have an electric shower to pump the water out it can often mean that the water pressure is poor.
