There are a few options to consider to ensure that you get the result that you need. The first consideration is which type of system best suits your needs. There are three main types of system:
The combination boiler system is the most common system we install. Gas and water are heated at the source, which is more energy and space efficient in comparison to other types of system, as you only heat the water you use and therefore no hot water storage tank is required. Combination boiler systems are suitable for houses of an average size.
The pressurised heating system operates to heat water on demand in a smaller unvented water cylinder, which is a more energy efficient option. Hot water can be distributed to multiple outlets at the same time using mains pressure, which means that they are suitable in larger homes and due to the space saving benefit of the size of the cylinder, it is very popular in apartment dwellings. This type of system can be connected to solar thermal power sources. We discuss this in more detail in our vented and unvented hot water cycling page.
The conventional heating system uses gravity to distribute water heated in a hot water tank, which is usually situated in the loft. Whilst it is less energy efficient to heat water which is potentially not going to be used, this system is more suitable for homes with multiple taps and showers can be supplied with enough hot water. This type of system is more suited to larger homes with multiple bathrooms.
