How To Choose a New Boiler

Installing a new boiler is a major decision and with so many options available, how do you know which boiler is the best one for your home? Before making this decision, it’s important to think about your current and future heating and hot water needs. You should consider how much hot water you and your family use, the size of your property, the fuel that is available to you, your existing system and the types of boiler you can have installed. You may also want to consider other factors such as energy efficiency and options for renewable energy use. To help you decide which boiler is right for you, we’ve prepared this at-a-glance guide. What are the different types of boilers? Before we get into the specifics of how to choose a boiler based on your heating needs and the size of your home, it’s important to know what types of boiler there are to choose from. Conventional boilers A conventional boiler is able to heat water up and store it in a hot water tank, keeping it warm for hours until it is needed. Once the stored hot water runs out, you will need to wait for more to be heated and the tank to be refilled. These systems are better for larger homes that have multiple bathrooms and lots of radiators, however the tank can take up a considerable amount of space. Many people use the cupboard where the tank is stored as an airing cupboard. Combi-boilers Combination boilers, commonly known as combi boilers, are the most popular boiler choice in the UK. They work by providing on-demand hot water directly from the mains without having to be connected to a storage tank. As a combi boiler provides hot water at mains pressure, it allows you to use a shower without the need for an additional shower pump. All of the components are contained within one unit and there is no need for a separate hot water tank, making these boilers ideal for properties with limited space. For those homes with a little more space, there is a type of boiler known as a storage combi. They work like a combi boiler, however they have a hot water tank similar to a conventional system that allows excess hot water to be stored and used later. System boilers System boilers work by directly supplying hot water to a storage cylinder and the radiators in your home. Similar to a combi boiler, the main components of this system are stored in one unit, making installation and servicing simpler. These types of boiler are ideal for properties with more than one bathroom or those that require more hot water than a combi can provide. Choosing the right type of boiler Now that you’ve been introduced to the three main types of boiler available, you should have a think about which one will be most beneficial for you, depending on your existing system and how much space you have to house it. Available Space The space available in your home could dictate the type of boiler that’s most suited to you. Most smaller properties have limited storage space, which may make it impossible to house a separate hot water tank. For instance, you may not have the space for a boiler, a large hot water tank and a cold water tank, therefore, a combi boiler would likely be the better choice. Existing system It is important to think about whether or not you wish to keep the same system as that already existing in your home. Usually it is best to retain the same system from the perspective of cost and practicality, however there may be occasions when a change to another system may be better. This is more likely to be the case for older homes as newer builds will usually have the optimum system in place. Bear in mind that different systems will also require different amounts of space and may not always be suitable. Hot water The kind of boiler you want will also depend on your hot water usage. If there is likely to be a demand for hot water simultaneously at different outlets, then a system boiler or conventional boiler, which includes a hot water cylinder, may be more suitable than a combi boiler, however this will depend on whether there is sufficient space available. Choosing the right size of boiler Once you’ve decided on a boiler type, it’s important to select one that is the right size and can keep up with the heating and hot water demands of your home. For instance, a two-bed terraced house will need a smaller boiler than a five-bedroom detached house. Hot water demand One of the first considerations when deciding on the size of your boiler is how much hot water you will use or are likely to use in the future. If you have a young family, your needs will likely increase as the children get older. For most households with a single bath and shower, a 24-30 kW boiler is generally recommended. Where there is an additional en-suite bathroom, it may be advisable to choose a larger 30-35 kW boiler. If, however, you have multiple bathrooms that are likely to be in use at the same time, a system boiler that stores hot water in a storage cylinder may be more suitable. A system boiler pre-heats and stores the hot water in a cylinder with the added benefit that its output can be sized on your home’s heating demand. Size of property As well as providing your hot water, your boiler will probably be the main source of heating for your property. This means that it is essential to choose a boiler that is large enough to provide sufficient heat output to supply your entire property. Domestic boiler size is measured in terms of heat output, which typically ranges from 5 to 35 kW.  For conventional and system boilers, you should avoid choosing a boiler that is too big for your home, for example, installing a boiler that has a capacity to supply 15 radiators when your flat only has a few. This will only result in a more costly energy bill and is a waste of gas and electricity. For combi boilers, the boiler size is usually determined by the hot water demand, a qualified heating installer will assess this for you prior to final recommendation and fitting. Heat loss There’s no point having an efficient boiler and heating system if most of the heat that’s being generated is escaping your home. Not only is this a waste of energy but you could receive an unexpectedly high bill from your energy supplier. There is a calculation that can be used to work out how much heat your property is losing. It takes into account the area of the room, the number of radiators, the quantity of doors and windows and the quality of insulation in your home. An expert is able to calculate how much heat your house will lose on the coldest day of the year and use this information to work out the optimum boiler size. You shouldn’t oversize your boiler to compensate for heat loss. In the past, it was common practice to choose an oversized boiler that was as much as 30 per cent bigger than required. However, with advances in technology, this is no longer necessary and will only result in wasted energy, leaving you out of pocket.
