1. What is a condensing boiler?

2. What is a combi boiler?

A combination or combi boiler by its very name indicates that it combines both a central heating boiler and hot water heater. There is no need for a hot water tank as water is heater as it is required. As well as having space saving benefits and there is no need for a hot water tank, a combi boiler saves on hot water costs as well as supplying hot water at mains pressure.

3. What is a regular boiler?

A regular boiler is part of conventional heating system and is linked to a series of water tanks that feed the boiler and radiators. Storage of hot water is the basis to this system, so a plentiful supply of hot water is always available. As this system is gravity fed, a tank is needed in the loft and usually one for the hot water tank is in the airing cupboard.
