The Different Types Of Boilers

There are three main types of gas condensing boilers to choose from. A combination boiler (or combi) heats the water when you need it thus eliminating the need for a storage tank. Then there is the heat-only boiler, also known as a conventional boiler, which has a hot water tank or cylinder to store hot water for later use. Finally, there is a system boiler which works like a heat-only boiler but with more components which can make them easier to install than conventional boilers. You should consider calling boiler installation companies in Surrey as they will know what would work best in your home.
