Conventional boilers use a storage tank to supply hot water for one’s home. With the water stored in a tank, it’s then heated via a cast iron heat exchanger that will then send the hot water in all the right directions. Though conventional boilers are quite popular they do take up a large amount of room due to their large cylinder shape. One of the reasons this boiler is as big as it is, is due to the need of a connection to a cold water tank. Another disadvantage of the conventional boiler is that it can run out of hot water. Once all the stored hot water runs out there can be a delay in supple as the tank refills and reheats. However, despite the disadvantages conventional boilers are fairly updated, and newer models can be set to match the specific heating requirement one’s home needs.
Popularly known as combi boilers, a combination boiler supplies water directly from the mains without the need of a storage tank. This is great for those that don’t have the room for big tanks, and it can make it very convenient for those using only the minimum of hot water. Unlink conventional boilers, combi boilers offer an unlimited supply of hot water as the water is their on demand, this is also makes the combi boiler perfect for large families or those in need of a higher usage of hot water.
