What Is The Right Boiler For My Wigan Home?

We often get asked, what is the right boiler for my Wigan home? Before deciding it is best to learn a little more about the three types of boilers mainly used in the home.

Choosing The Right Boiler For My Wigan Home

These are: combi boilers, system boilers and heat only boilers. All of them utilise condensing technology, so they are highly energy efficient and very cost effective to run. There are some advantages and disadvantages to each type of boiler, so it is worth understanding the main differences between them to see which boiler is best for you.

Combi Boiler

Combination boilers, or “combi boilers”, heat water instantly whenever you turn on a hot tap. As water is fed to the boiler directly from the mains, there is no need to have a separate hot water storage cylinder or a water tank in the loft. The water flow rate of a combi boiler is usually excellent.

Is a Combi Boiler suitable for my Wigan Home?

A combi boiler is a safe and economical choice for most Wigan homes, and they are probably the most popular boiler type in the United Kingdom.

Heat Only Boiler

These are also known as ‘regular’ or ‘conventional’ boilers. Heat only boilers are more often found in older houses. A heat only boiler requires both a feed tank and an expansion tank in the loft which is used to store a supply of cold water. They also require a separate hot water storage cylinder and pump, in order to move hot water around the house to where it is needed.

Is a Heat Only Boiler suitable for my Wigan Home?

A heat only boiler is a very popular choice when replacing an older heating system. They are great for larger properties that have a demand for a lot of hot water.

System Boiler

A system boiler also uses a hot water storage cylinder, but unlike a Heat Only boiler, it does not also need a separate tank in the loft.

Is a System Boiler suitable for my Wigan Home?

System boilers are quick and simple to install. All of the major components are built into the boiler. They are good if you had a conventional system but have converted your loft.
