If you are replacing an older model of boiler, the chances are that you will have a regular (also known as ‘conventional’) boiler.
A typical regular boiler system incorporates a boiler, extended controls, a hot water cylinder which is often fed by a cold water storage cistern located in the loft and a feed and expansion cistern – also located in the loft.
- You can get hot water from multiple taps at the same time
- The hot water can run out and you’ll have to wait for it to reheat.
- You need to find room for the cylinder and the tank.
- Homes which need to have hot water in more than one place at the same time.
