Modern A-rated high-efficiency boilers are available for each of the three types of central heating system; Regular, Combination and System. The right boiler for you will depend on whether you are just replacing the boiler or whether you want to change your entire central heating system. If you are contemplating a total system change, a reputable Gas Safe company like ourselves, who will work with you to discuss your heating needs, your lifestyle and your property, as these factors should help guide you and your decision.

If your existing boiler is very old, it is likely a regular, conventional boiler with a hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard and a cold water storage tank in the loft. System boilers work on the same principle but there is no need for a tank in the loft as the major components are built-in. This makes installation quicker and more space-efficient.

For instance, if you are replacing a very old boiler, you could realize a 50 per cent reduction on your current bills but this would be an extreme example.

A new boiler for a conventional or system central heating system lets you keep the benefits of having your heating and hot water together. These boilers are fully compatible with solar systems if you have solar panels on your roof, or should you decide solar may be something you might consider in the future.
If your existing central heating system has no storage tank in the loft and no cylinder in the airing cupboard, you have got a combination boiler which saves space and offers continuous hot water. Such boilers account for over half of all the new domest
