What boilers do our heating engineers install?
When choosing your boiler, choose a system which will work efficiently and fit with your day to day life. Take a look at the different system types available to help you decide, we cover how they work, their advantages and what kind of homes they work best in.
System boilers need a cylinder for storing hot water, the major heating and hot water system components are built into itself and make it quicker and easier to install. Additionally, there’s no need for a tank in the loft, so it’s an option for homes with little or no loft space or where the space is earmarked for conversion.
A ‘combi’ or combination boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in one single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water from the mains so when you turn a tap on, you won’t require a hot water storage tank in the roof space.
This option is also considered as cost effective and energy efficient, the water is heated instantly rather than being heated and stored in a cylinder. Other advantages include that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, this means that you can get a power shower without the need for a separate pump.
Regular boilers (traditional and conventional) or heat only boilers, are ideally suited to homes that have traditional heating and hot water systems which are linked to separate hot water cylinders. These types of boilers do not require a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.
Regular boilers are considered the best option for replacing an existing system, should the property have an older radiator system, it might not be able to cope with the high water pressure that is delivered by system or combi boilers.

Heat-Tec’s Top Boiler Tips
It’s important to have regular safety checks from a gas safe engineer, this will ensure that your boiler and your home stay safe.
Lag your pipes
We believe that prevention is always better than a cure, the best time for pipe lagging is before the winter sets in, pipe lagging is very simply and most DIY shops sell ready-made pipe lagging that will slip over your pipes.
Keep the pressure up
Boilers don’t run properly when the pressure is to low, by having the right pressure (between 1 and 1.5 bars), this is easy to check as there’s a dial on the front of your boiler.
Switch the boiler off
Once the weather has warmed up, you can turn your boiler off, if you have a combi-boiler, just switch it to hot water only. To prevent problems when the winter returns, its always a good idea to switch your boiler on once a month for 15 minutes during the warmer summer months.
