Boiler Information

Ideal Boiler Range

Typically in the UK new boiler installation market there are 3 types.

A combi boiler produce instantaneous hot water.

They work directly off the incoming water main​ and there are no other water storage tanks in the property.

System Boilers are similar to Combi’s and they are ‘closed system’ meaning they work in tandem with a pressurised storage cylinder.

Regular boilers are described as heat only or conventional meaning that they are fed by storage tanks in the loft.

They also supply the heating radiators and hot water via a hot water cylinder which is housed in an airing cupboard.

Over 80% of new installations in the uk today are of the combination type as this type of system is easier to install and maintain.

Here’s a brief explanation of the most common types of new boiler installation in the UK today.
