Combi boilers – most properties have this type of boiler which not only heats your home but eats you water as well both from a central heating unit. It is often preferred because it does not require the need for a cold water tank or a hot water storage cylinder.  Any hot water that is required is heated from the mains water inlet.

System boilers – these systems also do not need a hot water storage cylinder but they do require the need for a cold water tank to be installed, usually in your attic space. These systems can be used with solar heating so that you can cut down on the amount of non-renewable energy that you use in your home and decrease your energy bills.
