Need Help In Choosing A Boiler For Your Wigan Home

When it comes to picking the best boiler for your Wigan home, there are three types to consider:

  • Combi boilers
  • Conventional boilers
  • System boilers

There are not many differences between system and conventional boilers, so we covered the differences between conventional and combination boilers in our guide.

Combi Boilers

Combi boilers are the most popular boilers in the UK. They are an economical option for many Wigan families, as they only heat the water that you use. 


  • Hot water on demand as it is heated straight from the mains.
  • No separate water tank or cylinder, so the save space.
  • Ideal for smaller Wigan houses or flats.
  • Quick to install compared to other heating systems.


  • If you use multiple hot taps together, water flow can reduce.
  • Water can take a short time to heat.

Conventional Boilers

Also known as regular or heat-only boilers, conventional boilers send a supply of hot water around your radiators and also provide water for your hot taps.


  • Can send water to several hot taps at the same time.
  • Ideal for larger Wigan homes that have multiple bathrooms.


  • Space is required for a hot water cylinder and also a cold water header tank.
  • Before you want hot water, you have to turn on the boiler. You can programme it to heat the water in the cylinder, so you will have hot water at certain times.
  • You can only have the amount of hot water your cylinder will hold. If the water runs out, you have to heat it again.
