What is the best boiler for my home?
‘I’m wondering about the best boiler for my home but I want impartial information.’ This is a statement that we hear from customers and that we thoroughly understand and appreciate. If you are considering making the investment in a new boiler then you want to know that the machinery you buy is going to do the job better than any other. Can you really trust an installer like us to provide you with impartial advice? Well, yes and no.
Naturally, our advice isn’t completely impartial. We install boilers and we work with a particular brands, so the chances are that we’re going to recommend a Worcester Bosch boiler. However, Worcester Bosch is one of the leading manufacturers. We Causeway is an independent company, so we’re free to recommend any brands we like and we choose this one for some very good reasons. Also, within the Worsecter Bosch range all bases are covered, so any suggestion we make will always be based on what’s best for you and your home.
A rated boilers
The best boiler for my home won’t necessarily be the same as the best boiler for your home. There are variables. However, there are a few consistencies as well. UK building regulations state that all new and replacement gas-fired boilers must be condensing boilers. In addition to this, we see no reason not to have a boiler installed that isn’t A rated. Modern, A rated condensing boilers could take the efficiency of your home to over 90% and and save you up to 30% on your heating bills over the course of a year.
Types of boilers
In the boiler section of our website we link to the Worcester Bosch website, where you will find full information about the company’s range and the different types of boilers within it. Here we’ll provide you wiith a brief overview of the three main types.
The combination boiler, better known as a combi boiler is a water heater and central heating boiler in one. Combi boilers are compact and energy efficient. They heat up water as and when you need it, so there’s no need for you to have a separate tank in your home, storing hot water. Water heated by a combi boiler is delivered hot, at mains pressure on demand.
Combi boilers could be the right option for you if have a small property, want an economical solution and want to maximise space.
System boilers are larger because they require a cylinder for storing hot water but both cylinder and boiler are combined in one unit, so they are easy to install and don’t require a separate tank in the loft. System boilers are also compatible with solar panels.
A system boiler could be the best for you if you have solar panels, or if you have more than one bathroom, so need a consistent supply of water to more than one tap at a time.
Regular, traditional boilers include a boiler, linked to a separate hot water cylinder, which is fed by a cold water storage tank in the loft.
A traditional boiler could be the best option for you if you already have one and it needs to be replaced by a new model, if you have solar panels or if you need to use a lot of hot water all at the same time.
