Choosing The Best Boiler For Your St Helens Home

If you want help choosing the best boiler for your St Helens home then here is our guide.

There are three types of boiler you will find in most St Helens homes: combi boilers, system boilers and heat only boilers. All utilise condensing technology, so they are all energy efficient and economical to run. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to each, so it is worth reading up on the differences between them to see the boiler that is best for your St Helens home.

St Helens Home – Combi Boiler

Combination boilers heat water instantly when you turn on a hot tap. As water is directly fed to the boiler from the mains, you will not need a separate hot water storage cylinder or tank in the loft. The flow rate of a combi boiler is usually very good.

A combi boiler is a safe choice for most St Helens homes, and they are the most popular boilers in the United Kingdom.

St Helens Home – Heat only boiler

These are also called ‘conventional’ boilers. Heat only boilers are found in many older houses. A heat only boiler needs a feed tank and an expansion tank which is used to store a supply of cold water (often in the loft). They also have a separate hot water cylinder, and pump, so hot water can be moved around the house wherever it is needed.

Is a Heat Only Boiler suitable for my St Helens Home?

A heat only boiler is a good choice if you are replacing an old heating system. They are ideal for larger families that need a lot of hot water at the same time.

St Helens Home – System boiler

A system boiler also uses a storage cylinder for hot water but unlike a conventional boiler, does not need a tank in the loft.

Is a System Boiler suitable for my St Helens Home?

System boilers are simple to install for a professional. All the major components are built in. They are ideal for those with loft conversions.
