It can be confusing to decide which boiler is right for you.

There are three different sorts of boiler:

Combi boilers supply heating and hot water straight from the boiler.

Regular and system boilers both heat your central heating system and then produce hot water for your cylinder.

Which boiler is right for you?

Which boiler is right for you depends on several things, such as your home and how you live.

For homes not connected to the gas network, oil-fired boilers can provide an efficient, clean and cost effective alternative.

For owners of mobile and static homes, caravans and farm dwellings that aren’t connected to the gas mains grid, householders have to find an alternative source of fuel, such as LPG.

Things to consider when choosing your boiler:

You want to use your loft space for a room conversion or other purpose.
