Boiler Installation in Droitwich and Worcestershire

A.B. Plumbing can help with a number of types of boiler installation in Droitwich, Worcester, and the surrounding areas

Combi Boiler Installation

Combi boilers, often referred to as combination boilers, are a form of condensing boiler. Well known brands are Worcester Bosch, Baxi, Ideal, Viessman, Vaillant, Potterton, amongst others.

Combi boilers generate water on demand for your taps and central heating from within the boiler unit. Combis are easily the most popular boiler type, accounting for over 50% of all new boiler sales within the UK.

Central heating systems incorporating combi boilers have fewer overall components. Combi boilers take their cold water feed directly from your mains supply. By installing a combi boiler, the cold water feed tank (often housed in the loft) is not required and therefore can save storage space and offers a simple boiler system installation solution.

Regular Boiler installation – heat only

Regular boilers are a type of condensing boiler; you may find regular boilers are also referred to as traditional or conventional boilers.
If you are replacing an older model of boiler, the chances are that you will have a regular boiler. A typical conventional condensing boiler system incorporated a boiler and extended controls, a feed and expansion cistern and a copper hot water cylinder (using in the airing cupboard), which is often fed by a cold water storage cistern located in the loft.
Regular boiler systems have more components but tend to have a less complicated design

System Boiler Installation

A system boiler is the term for a heat-only boiler. System boilers are a type of condensing boiler which occupies the middle ground between combi boilers and the regular boilers.

Unlike combi boilers, system boilers  work on the principle of storing hot water in a copper cylinder (usually in the airing cupboard). A system boiler will provide heating together with the power to heat water to be stored within the cylinder as a part of a sealed system.

Notwithstanding this, system boilers differ from regular boilers in some fundamental respects. The key difference with a system boiler is that all the major components are built in to the boiler. By building in components, which most other boilers situate outside the unit, system boilers can provide a compact and attractive installation. One noticeable difference in that a feed and expansion tank in the attic is no longer needed.
