When it comes to having a new central heating system installed, there are several options you could choose. The various types of central heating systems include:

Combi boilers:

The combination boiler (aka combi boiler) is becoming a really popular choice in most homes nowadays. This demand for combi boilers is probably due to the fact that they only require a small amount of space when installed. The water heater and central heating boiler are both combined into one single unit, which consequently means it is more appealing if you are looking to save space in your home and save money on hot water costs.

An additional benefit of a combi boiler is you are able to save money on the installation process, due to the face that it is one small unit, you don’t have to have two seperate units installed. You will also find the installation process is reduced in time because a lot less piping work is required.

Conventional boilers:

This particular type of boiler has both a cylinder and a tank, so it takes up a lot more space in comparison to a combi boiler. Conventional boilers may also be known as open vent or regular boilers, but whatever you call them they still do the same job.

A downside to conventional boilers is because hot water is stored in a separate tank, it is possible for the hot water to run out after so much usage and then you must wait for it to reheat again.

On the plus side, it is ideal for homes where hot water is going to be used in separate rooms at the same time. When you look at combi boilers, sometimes the pressure of the water is lost when you require hot water in several rooms at the same time.

System boilers:

System boilers work very similar to a conventional boiler in the way that stored hot water is used, however, there are several differences between the two.

These differences include a faster installation time for a system boiler, as most of the components are built into the boiler unit itself.

Then there is the fact that the hot water is pumped from the system boiler through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, resulting in a quick response and more cost effective running costs.

As expected, the majority of calls we get regarding our central heating Sheffield service are combi boiler related, however our team of experts can handle all types and sizes of jobs. Call us on 01226 755661 or email enquiries@nugasgroup.co.uk for more information.
