Do you have an old central heating system that’s costing a fortune in energy bills or is constantly being repaired? Well you may need a new boiler. Heating and hot water contribute to over 80% of the average households energy consumption.
Boilers that are over ten years old waste a lot of valuable energy and are less reliable compared to modern boilers. Replacing it with a modern condensing boiler will improve efficiency to over 90% which could save you a minimum of 30% per year on your home heating bills.
There are many factors to consider when replacing a boiler, which is why our customers benefit from a free of charge quotation. It’s true that most modern boilers will significantly out perform old boilers, however, some boilers are more reliable, have better control features and come with good warranties of up to 10 years. How and where the boiler is installed can also have an impact on the boiler’s efficiency and life.
Need a new boiler? We recommend the award winning Worcester Bosch Greenstar range, although we can also provide other leading brands too.
Different types of boilers explained
Not only are there different brands producing boilers, there are also different types of boilers which suit different homes. Most manufactures will provide a range of boilers covering the below.
What is a condensing boiler?
A condensing boiler makes more of the energy it runs on by using heat normally expelled through the flue. By converting over 90% of the fuel used (rather than just 50% in the case of some old boilers), a condensing boiler makes your fuel go further. Therefore, a condensing boiler can help to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint.
What is a combi boiler?
Combi is short for ‘combination’. It refers to the way this type of system serves as both a central heating boiler and a hot water heater. That means there’s no need for a water tank as hot water is provided on demand. As well as saving the space normally taken up by a water tank, a combi boiler saves on hot water costs as well as giving you hot water at mains pressure.
What is a regular boiler?
This typically forms part of a conventional heating system, and is linked to a series of water tanks that feed the boiler and radiators. Storing hot water is key to this system, so unlike a combi boiler, a plentiful supply of hot water is always available. Space is required in the loft and airing cupboard for tanks.
What is a system boiler?
Like a regular system, this uses stored hot water, however because the water is pumped from the boiler straight to the radiators and hot water tank, it’s a faster, more economical system. Also many of the components of the system are built-in, making it easier, quicker and more affordable to install.

Central Heating System Types (Fuels)
There are many different types of central heating systems such as gas, oil, biomass, LPG and electric to name but a few. Getting the correct central heating system for your home will ensure you are not wasting money on high energy bills, and in some cases you could be reducing your carbon footprint and even be receiving cash incentives for using renewable energy products.
Getting the right solution will also depend on a number of factors, which could eliminate some of those options. For example, if your home is not on the national grid then you will not have a supply of gas, which eliminates the option of a conventional gas boiler system. However, there are a good range of options if you are not on the national grid, such as biomass, oil, LPG, ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Below is an overview of some of the different type of systems.
