Wigan Homeowners Boiler Advice

Here are the facts about different types of boilers so you can choose which is right for Wigan homeowners.

Combi Boiler For Wigan Homeowners

A combination (or “combi”) boiler is both a water heater and central heating boiler in one box. Combination boilers heat mains water on demand when you open the hot taps, so you do not need to have a hot water cylinder or a header tank in your loft.

They are really cost-effective and highly energy-efficient because water is heated on demand instead of heating the full cylinder. Hot water is delivered at the same pressure as the mains so you can get a more powerful shower without the need for a pump.

  • Great for smaller properties.
  • No hot water cylinder so you get more living space.
  • No cold-water tank, so more loft space
  • There is no risk of pipework freezing up in your loft
  • As there is less pipework, installation is cheaper

System Boiler For Wigan Homeowners

System boilers need a hot water storage cylinder, but the major components are all built directly into the boiler, so they are quite quick and easy to install. There is no need to have a header tank in the loft.

  • Great for homes with multiple bathrooms
  • Can supply hot water to many taps simultaneously
  • No need to have a header tank in your loft

Regular Boilers For Wigan Homeowners

Regular boilers (also called “heat only” boilers”) are suited to homes that already have an older heating and water system with a hot water cylinder. They need a cold water storage tank and a tank to maintain the water level in the system.

A regular boiler is a really good option if you are replacing a boiler in an older system, as the pipework may not be able to handle the higher water pressure of a system or combi boiler.

  • Ideal for homes where a lot of hot water is used at the same time
  • A good choice for larger homes with two or more bathrooms
  • A good option for homes in areas with low water pressure
