The Installation & Upgrading Of Boilers
Modern condensing boilers fit by Clearwater Plumbing & Heating are incredibly efficient, achieving efficiency levels of 90-99% (depending on the type, model and make of Boiler). This means only 1-9% of the fuel used is wasted, whereas older boilers waste up to 50%.
Using a modern condensing boiler will save you money on fuel bills and lower your household’s carbon footprint by capturing and reusing flue gases to heat water.
Depending on your needs, we can remove your old Boiler and replace it with a new one of the same size and shape. Alternatively, a new central heating system can be installed with a new boiler, radiators, cylinders (if necessary), thermostats, and controls.
An Overview Of Boiler Types
A boiler can be powered by gas, electricity, oil, or LPG. We’ll start by selecting a boiler that uses your available fuel.
Choosing The Correct Boiler Size
Different types of homes require different sizes of boilers. For example, in a one-bedroom apartment, only a small boiler is needed, whereas in a large home with multiple taps and radiators, a larger boiler is required to meet the demand. So you don’t waste money on a larger boiler or excess fuel, one of our engineers will help you select the best size boiler for your home.
Combination, System & Regular Boilers
Among the types of boilers are combination boilers, system boilers and regular boilers (also called traditional boilers). To choose the best Boiler for your home, we must consider your heating and hot water consumption.
Boilers fitted in the UK are mostly combination boilers, accounting for around 50% of all installations. They are the most space-efficient because they don’t require a hot water storage cylinder or tanks.
With the combi boiler, water is heated instantly, passing through a heating element whenever a tap or shower is turned on.
Combination boilers operate at mains pressure, which can be subpar if you live in a low-pressure area, so that the engineer will determine your water pressure suitability during the survey. A boiler breakdown will also leave you without hot water, as there is no hot water storage in the form of a cylinder.
Small to medium-sized homes are best served by combination boilers.
An air-tight pressurised water cylinder stores the hot water from a system boiler, so you will always have hot water available.
A backup immersion heater is also included in the pressurised cylinder, so you still have hot water during a boiler breakdown.
A system boiler installation is more expensive than a combination boiler, and the cylinder needs to be placed in a designated space.
A system boiler is best suited for large to medium-sized houses with multiple bathrooms.
A regular boiler combines water/feed and expansion tanks with a vented, unpressurised cylinder.
Gravity-driven, the system can supply continuous hot water to multiple taps in homes and bathrooms.
Regular systems have more parts and space requirements, making them complex to install. As a result, they are only installed in new homes if they are large with multiple bathrooms. The only exception is in homes with old regular systems with owners that don’t want to upgrade to modern Combination or System Boilers.
