Choosing a Boiler
Your choice of boiler depends on where it’s being installed. Different sized establishments all have different needs and suit different boilers. By replacing your boiler with a higher efficiency condensing boiler you will not only save on fuel bills but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment and reducing your home’s annual carbon footprint. We can guide you through the choice of different products and systems available on the market at the moment to suit you. Here, though, is an overall guide to the different types of boilers that are available. There are two types of condensing boilers:Combination and Conventional System.
Combination boilers, as the name suggests, combine most of the components of a conventional system i.e. boiler, cylinder, pump, control valves and thermostats. Together, these are housed in one unit (The Combi). The technology involved with this type of boiler has improved at a dramatic rate over the last five years. Where, not so long ago, a combi would only produce nine litres of hot water per minute at 35°. Nowadays they can produce up to eighteen litres a minute at 35°. This is why they now account for most new boilers found in the UK today.
The benefits are:
Saves money by only heating the water when you need it.
Saves space as you don’t need a separate hot water cylinder. The downsides of having a combi are:
They’re not good for properties with low water pressure.
And they’re not so good if you’ve got more than one bath or shower room.
In general, combination boilers best suit flats or small houses.
A Conventional system (as opposed to a combi system) is one where a cold water storage tank, a hot water storage cylinder, a heat only boiler and separate controls are installed to provide primarily a greater volume of hot water. This type of system is more suitable for larger houses with two or more bathrooms where hot water demand at several taps is likely to be simultaneous.
Here at LRD Plumbing and heating we are fully qualified to install the very latest high-efficiency Greenstar boilers. Not only do these produce minimal emissions of Nitrous Oxide and Carbon Dioxide – meaning they’re both safer and better for the environment. But they all carry a SEDBURK Band A efficiency rating – the highest. Which is great for you since they are more than 90% efficient.
Basically, your boiler is more efficient, and yet you pay less on your bills. This is because you burn less gas producing heat and hot water. Plus there’s a host of advanced features and our own after sales care to ensure you get the very best from your installation.
With the 21st Century technology comes 21st Century styling. The boilers blend beautifully with all modern appliances in even the most luxurious of kitchens. In fact, with these modern streamlined machines, flexibility is key. So while they’re often fitted in the kitchen, you can actually install them in a place that suits your home: the airing cupboard, garage, loft or cellar.
As Gas Safe registered engineers, LRD Plumbing and Heating are qualified to advise you where the best place is to install your new boiler. So reduce your fuel bills and bring your home up to date with a new energy saving heating system.
