The number of shower rooms/ baths in your household will give our engineers an indication of the flow rate your home requires.
For your home to be sufficiently heated your boiler needs to be powerful enough to reach all the radiators in your home, therefore, understanding the number of radiators in your home is crucial in determining what size boiler you require.
This gives us an idea of the size of your home in a similar way that the number of radiators does, the more bedrooms your home has the higher the output demands on your new boiler.
This type of boiler provides only heat rather than the combination of heat and hot water like a combi boiler does. Any hot water is stored separately in a storage tank and water is fed via a cistern tank to the system.
We would only recommend a heat-only boiler for your home if you already have one or your property has old pipework. These are the oldest type of residential boilers on the market.
Combi boilers are the most common type of boilers in UK homes, these boilers eliminate the need for a separate water tank as they provide both heating and hot water directly from the mains. These boilers are incredibly efficient in both size and energy usage, without heating a whole tank – you just heat what you use.
These boilers work on the amount of power you need to heat your home, we can work this out by the number of bathrooms, bedrooms, and radiators you have. If you’re looking to install a new combi boiler with Padly use our boiler calculator to work out the water pressure you need to heat your property.
System boilers require both a boiler and a cylinder system, these boilers are a modernised version of the regular boilers. These boilers take up much less space than regular boilers as a cistern tank isn’t required. These are, however still a much larger option when compared to the combination boiler.
If your home suffers from love water pressure we wouldn’t recommend you this boiler, system boilers take their water supply directly from the mains and this would negatively impact your flow rate.
