Every household is different and because if that there isn’t an overall best choice of boiler type for everyone. The most important thing to take into account is how many people in your home need to make use of hot water at any given time…

How many boiler types are there?
There are two main boiler types that we think homeowners need to be aware of to make the best choice for their homes. These are combination (or combi) boilers and system boilers.
We can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure that you ignore price for the most part and really focus on what you actually need. We encourage homeowners to view boilers as an investment for their home since they are a huge cost so here’s a breakdown at what each type is good at.
Combi boilers are very popular choices in smaller homes across the UK and for good reason. They have the ability to heat water as and when you need it, meaning that you don’t have to wait long periods of time before you can make use of the hot water. A great example of this are those cold winter morning where the last thing you want to do is wait for your water to heat up before you can jump in the shower.
However, they are not without limitations. Combi boilers can only deliver hot water to one location in a house consistently at any time. This means that is someone upstairs wants to shower at the same time someone downstairs wants to crack on with the washing up then there may be a hot water problem. This means that combi boilers are a great choice for people that live alone or in small homes made up of 2-3 people where it less likely that people have a demand for hot water at the same time.
Conventional boilers in contact are a great choice for larger homes as they have the ability to deal with a greater demand of hot water at one time. These kind of boilers work well in homes that make use of more than one bathroom as it means everyone will be able to use the shower as and when they need to.
While that can deliver water at multiple places at one time, they do make use of a tank and cylinder and therefore take up more physical space in a home and that means that they might not be a great option for those of you out there that value your space. They also require time to heat the water that sits in the tank. This means that once you have used up all the hot water inside, you will have to wait for it to refill. A popular example for this is where one person uses all the hot water in a very long shower, leaving everyone else at a loss while they have to wait for their turn.
