|Some homes still use back boilers, which are hidden behind a chimney, with a fire front to cover them. If you don't already have this system then it's not going to be a first choice for you as the water pressure is low, it is very space-hungry and you'll need somewhere to hide your boiler. However, if you do already use a back boiler, then it might be the best option for you when the time comes to replace it. Traditionally, back boilers are not very efficient, but great improvements have been made over the past 5-10 years, so by replacing your old back boiler, you could make huge savings on your annual heating bills.|
|Open vent and open vent sealed system boilers - An open vent boiler is the existing system in most people's homes. This type of system uses two water tanks, both located in the loft, and a hot water storage cylinder in the airing cupboard so it is very space hungry. One tank draws water from the mains supply and feeds the storage cylinder which, when heated by the boiler, can release hot water to taps all over the house.|
|A system boiler (also known as a closed or sealed system boiler) works on the principle of stored hot water. This means that you will need an airing cupboard or other space for the hot water storage tank. Although a tank is needed in the airing cupboard, a system boiler still needs less space than a traditional open vent or heating only boiler, which utilises a second tank in the loft. Also, many of the individual components of the heating and hot water system are built in, which means that installation is quicker, neater, easier and more efficient.|
|Combination (Combi) boilers have become the bestselling boiler type for gas central heating in the UK. They are small; fitting into cupboards, and very economical to run. And because they heat water directly from the mains, you don't have to wait for water to heat up - and your stream of hot water will be endless.|
