What type of boiler do i need?
How do I decide which type of boiler best suits my needs?
There are 3 different types of boiler:
- Combi boiler (or ‘combination’ boiler)
- Regular boiler (often also referred to as a ‘traditional’ or ‘conventional’ boiler)
- System boiler
Combi boilers provide heating and hot water directly from the boiler.
Regular and system boilers heat your central heating system directly and produce hot water for your cylinder.
A Combi boiler is most suitable if:
- You want to use your loft space for a room conversion or other purpose
- You live in a flat or bungalow (i.e. have very little or no roof space)
- You need to have hot water available on tap without waiting for it to heat up.
A regular or system boiler is most suitable if:
- Your home has more than 2 bathrooms
- Your main water pressure is low
If you just want to replace an old boiler to improve an existing conventional central heating system then any of the above would suit depending on your needs. Which boiler you need will depend on several factors, including your property and lifestyle. It will also depend on the professional advice of a Gas Safe Register installer for gas boilers, or, an OFTEC registered installer for oil-fired boilers.
Find out which is the best new boiler for you by asking me. I can offer advice and give installation prices.

Go's the extra mile
I'd recommend Daniel. He knows what he's doing. He's a clean and tidy worker and he does the job properly.
Reliable and Highly Skilled
Daniel is a very efficient plumber , we found him to be reliable and highly skilled . He fitted a new heating system with boiler for us , we were very happy with the job and would gladly recommend him . Oh nearly forgot , the cost was also good .
We can't recommend Dan highly enough, he has been 'Our Plumber' now for over 6 years and has always been great. His prices are fair and he's very reliable whether its a little job like a leaky toilet or fitting a new boiler (something he did recently for us). Brilliant!
