What Type and What Size of Boiler Do I Need?
Calculating the size of the required boiler needs to be done carefully, taking into account the size and the layout of the property, the number of rooms and bathrooms, the profile of hot water usage and many other parameters.
Your plumber or heating engineer will be able to calculate accurately what type and size of boiler you actually need to install.
What is a High Efficiency Boiler?
The most important advance in recent years with regards to domestic boilers has been the introduction of the condensing boiler. The condensing boiler manages to recover a substantial amount of the heat that would otherwise be expelled into the atmosphere from the flue of a standard (non-condensing) boiler.
The vast majority of plumbers and heating engineers in the UK only install condensing boilers these days. Most of our plumbers actually admit that within this category, most boilers sold are indeed Combi boilers.
An extra-large heat exchanger within the boiler is used to reclaim the heat from the expelled hot gases. This way the system maximises heat transfer from the burner while recovering useful heat that would normally be lost with the flue gases.
