What type of boiler do I need?

There are three main types of boiler: combi, heat only and system. Heat only boilers (aka conventional or regular) work with a cylinder in the airing cupboard. System boilers are often found in modern homes with an ‘unvented’ hot water cylinder. Combi boilers produce instant hot water. Verrall + Parks will help you identify which one you have and consider the advantages and disadvantages of each. You may be thinking about a new boiler which our Gas Safe registered engineers will install at very competitive prices and this guide can help you decide whether to stick with your existing boiler type or to install a different boiler type.

Identify your current boiler – what are the pros and cons?

Stick or change boiler type – Our Top Tips

  • If you have old radiators or pipework buried in screed – stick with an open vented, heat only boiler
  • If you and your family have lots of showers at the same time – consider changing to a system boiler with unvented hot water tank (if your water pressure is good)
  • On a tight budget – replace your existing boiler with the same type of boiler in the same location
  • Want low maintenance costs – install a combi boiler with a 10 year warranty/guarantee from Ideal which is our preferred manufacturer (providing your water pressure is good).
  • Extending your property and adding bathrooms – consider a system boiler with un-vented hot water tank (if the water pressure is good).
