With three different types of boiler to choose from: the combination boiler, the system boiler, the conventional boiler, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. The combination boiler is often the most popular choice, but this will not be suitable for every home. In fact, for properties with multiple bathrooms, a combination boiler probably wont be the right fit. Instead, you should look at at a system or conventional boiler. But should you choose a conventional boiler? Well, here at Charter Heating, we are skilled at installing, repairing and maintaining all boiler types, including the conventional boiler. And this is our guide to everything you should know about conventional boilers.

What is a conventional boiler?

First of all, what is a conventional boiler? Well, a conventional boiler is a boiler that uses both a hot water cylinder, and  a cold water storage tank. As you can see, this is quite a lot of storage that is necessary. The tanks are generally stored in the attic or loft, so that there is a good amount of water pressure, and a high quality flow of water. This system also requires a lot of pipework, which can make installation trickier and more expensive.

Should you choose a conventional boiler?

So, should you choose a conventional boiler? Well, a conventional boiler brings a range of advantages, including:

  • Hot water to multiple sources all at the same time. This is perfect for large families or even hotels and B and B’s as it means that the water will remain hot, no matter how many taps are in use at the same time.
  • Great water pressure as the water will flow down from the tanks through your home. So even if the water pressure in your area is poor, you can still enjoy a powerful shower.
