While a combi boiler may be the optimal boiler for energy efficiency and financial savings, they’re not suitable in some locations. In particular, when there’s a need for hot water to a number of sources at any one time, combination boilers aren’t right for the job.
A sealed system boiler is perfect for large homes, nursing homes and businesses, but bear in mind you’ll need to find room for a hot water tank. In most cases an airing cupboard or loft is suitable.
Despite needing this extra room, a sealed system boiler will take up less space than a traditional open vent. In older housing you’re likely to find these open vent boilers, so replacing with a sealed system will provide you with more space.
The installation for a sealed system boiler is quick and easy as all the parts are inbuilt inside the boiler. This includes all the necessary components for heating and hot water.
Another benefit to these sealed system models is the water pressure. It’s generally very good and you can have hot water to two places at one time. This means your shower won’t run cold if someone starts washing up.
If you’re looking to save money through your energy bills, a biomass boiler could be beneficial to you. Biomass boilers run off renewable products and help to cut carbon emissions too. These renewable products, such as agricultural crops and wood are typically cheaper than gas, electricity and oil.
So when it comes to a replacement boiler there really are a number of choices. Combi boilers, sealed systems and biomass boilers all have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s all down to your individual needs.
The type of property the boiler will heat is instrumental in your choice and you shouldn’t rush a decision. For FREE, no obligation quotes on boilers from reputable companies, complete our boiler quote form.
