Updating how water boiler system
If you're renovating a property that hasn't been updated in decades, it may be necessary to change the whole central heating system.A new boiler, cylinder, radiators and adjustable radiator valves should make a big difference to how good - and efficient - the system is, but don't overlook the pipework.They’re a good option where water pressure is low, as other means can be utilised to increase the domestic water performance in the property e.g. They can also be used in conjunction with solar water heating panels.Below you will find an example of a Regular boiler system set-up: A System boiler is very similar to a conventional boiler as they both require a hot water cylinder.If your boiler has a hot-water cylinder, you may want to get rid of it by fitting a combi, or relocate the cylinder, as new cylinders are often a different shape and size to old ones.This could free up space in your bathroom for a shower cubicle where the airing cupboard/cylinder was, for example.They’re often designed to be able to cope with multiple hot water outlets being used at the same time.
If you have more bathrooms than that, a combi probably isn't suitable.
They are cost effective and energy efficient as water gets heated when it is needed and it does not require a separate hot water store.
A combi boiler is a water heater and central heating boiler in one, which is an efficient choice for flats and small to medium size houses, where there is not high hot water demand i.e. Combi boilers have a secondary heat exchanger, which heats the domestic hot water directly from the mains water supply on demand.
