System Boilers

In this article we will be covering system boilers. To the normal person it can still be confusing when choosing the right type of boiler for their needs, a system boiler is one of the main three types used today.

A system boiler is quite similar to an open vent boiler, it takes up more space as it has 2 tanks. The principle behind system boilers is to store hot water. A large amount of the individual parts of the hot water and heating are built in to a system boiler. This means they don’t need a feed or expansion cistern. If you have  a pressurized hot water cylinder you won’t require a hot water tank, if not you will need one. If you have a large demand for hot water i.e. a modern family home a system boiler is ideal as every meter of space for storage is needed.

The benefits of system boilers.

  • There’s always plenty of hot water so many faucets can be used at the same time.
  • There’s no need for an expansion tank in the attic.
  • If you have a pressurized water cylinder you won’t need a tank in the loft either.
  • Perfect for a big property with high hot water requirements.
  • As there are only a few parts outside the boiler it’s easy to install. This makes it quick, easy and efficient.
  • It has a fast response and economical running costs as the pump is integrated in system boilers.

The negatives of system boilers.

  • It’s larger so it will take up more room than a combi boiler.
  • There is a limit on the hot water as per the size of your cylinder. You may try running a bath and find you have to wait for more water to heat.
  • You can still lose heat to the surrounding areas from the cylinder meaning it’s not as energy efficient.
