A System Boiler or Combi?
What boiler would be the best for your house in Romford?
A system boiler is one that heats the central heating system, while a combi boiler is one that also heats up the water which flows to your taps. A system boiler does not heat up the water, meaning that an unvented hot water cylinder must be connected to it which is essentially a hot water tank.
A combi boiler heats up the water as it flows, meaning that it begins to heat up the water as soon as you turn the hot water on.
Both boilers, system and combi, are chosen according to the requirements of your house (depending on its size).
Combi boilers are usually intended for smaller houses in Romford, where the bathroom, kitchen, and boiler are close to each other. However, it’s important that hot water is not used by two people at the same time, meaning that combi boilers are best for houses with just 1 bathroom and kitchen. A combi boiler should be fitted into one of those rooms so that it is in close proximity to hot water taps. Otherwise, if the boiler is located far, then it would take a long time for the hot water to reach the tap.
For a larger house, with 2 or more bathrooms, and more than 3 residents, a system boiler would be the best option as it will be efficient, and the temperature will stay stable. It is also possible to use a circulation pump, which is essential for bigger installations. Thanks to extra circulation circuits, hot water will stay in the system where the temperature will be maintained, meaning that the water will not cool down and will be available as soon as you turn the tap on.
