The Types Of Boilers Our Heating Engineers Install.
When it comes to boilers, it’s essential to pick a system that works efficiently and fits effectively into your lifestyle. To support you in deciding, we take a look at the different system types. It’s our role to explain how they work, their benefits and what sort of homes they work excellently in.
Combi Boilers Medway
A ‘combi’ or combination boiler is both a high-efficiency central heating boiler and a water heater in one singular compact unit. Combi boilers heat water from the mains water supply. So that when you turn a tap on, you will not need a hot water storage tank in the loft space.
This choice also bodes well as they are cost-effective and very energy-efficient. This is because water is heated immediately rather than being heated and saved in a cylinder. An added bonus is that hot water is generated at mains pressure. As this means that you can get a power shower without needing a separate pump.
System Boilers Medway
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water. All the primary heating and hot water system parts are assembled into itself and mean that it is faster and simpler to install. Furthermore, there’s no call for a tank in the loft, so it’s a valid option for homes with limited or no loft space or where space is designated for a loft conversion.
Regular Boilers Medway
Regular boilers are also recognised as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers, are perfectly suited to homes that have traditional heating and hot water systems. These heating systems are connected to separate hot water cylinders. This grade of boiler does not need a cold water storage tank within the loft to supply the hot water cylinder or a tank that sustains the water level of the central heating system either.
Regular boilers are deemed the most suitable option for replacing an existing system if the property has a more old-fashioned radiator system. Because it may not be capable of coping with the high water pressure that is produced by a system or combi boiler.

Top Suggestions for Boiler Efficiency.
It's essential to have routine safety checks from a Gas Safe registered engineer, this will guarantee that your boiler and your house stay safe.
Simply put the boiler pressure is the balance of water and air within your boilers system (fundamentally inside the pipes and components).
Lag your heating pipes
We believe that prevention is invariably better than a cure. The best conditions for pipe lagging is before winter sets in.
Pipe lagging is very simple and most DIY shops sell ready-made pipe lagging that will glide over your pipes.
Ensure the pressure is adequate
Boilers don't run correctly when the pressure is to low.
By having the correct pressure (usually between 1 and 1.5 bars), this is simple to monitor as there’s a dial on the face of your boiler.
Switching the boiler off
When the weather has warmed up, you can switch your boiler off. If you possess a combi-boiler, simply switch it to hot water only.
To avert problems when the wintertime returns, it is invariably an excellent approach to switch your boiler on once a month for 15 minutes through the warmer summer periods.
