Type of boiler
This is the first place to start. What you may want to do is check to see what kind of appliance you currently have. It will be cheaper and faster to replace like for like.
There are three main types of boiler. They each have their pros and cons. Make sure you are clear on all of them before you commit.
Regular boilers provide your heat and have a separate water cylinder to supply hot water. As a result, they can be quick and cost-effective to replace. The only downside is if you need replacements for all of the different parts.
Combination (combi) boilers are a single unit that supplies both hot water and the heating. They are compact and generally have the lowest maintenance costs. The issue is they don’t work well if the water pressure is low. Besides, they may not be good for properties where several hot water taps will be on at once. This includes large family homes with several bathrooms.
System boilers are common in larger new homes. They are large because there is a separate hot water cylinder in the machine. The amount of space they take up can be a problem but they are effective at feeding several bathrooms at once. Maintenance costs may also be slightly higher for them.

When to stick with the same kind of boiler
There are several situations when it is better to replace like for like rather than changing the boiler. The most important ones are:
- If the property has old radiators or pipes are buried in the screed. In these cases, a modern system boiler or combi may have too much pressure. As a result, it could damage the radiators, pipes, or the screed.
- When your budget is tight, it is better to choose the same type of appliance. This is because the fixtures will already be there.
When is it better to change?
Surprisingly there are several cases when it is wise to change to a different type of boiler. Here are some examples:
- You might extend your current property and create additional bathrooms. If you do, it may be better to upgrade to a system boiler. This way, several family members can use bathrooms at the same time. They can do so without losing pressure.
- New boilers tend to come with extended warranties to protect consumers. Therefore, if you want lower maintenance costs it may be best to switch to a combi with a warranty of up to ten years.
- If you plan to move the boiler to create more space, a combi may be the best option. As we said above they are compact and take up the least room. There is also the option to fasten them to a wall, leaving space beneath.
Think about fuel
When you look into boilers you must consider the type of fuel. Electric ones are the most flexible because they can generally go on any wall. Gas, oil and biomass types, on the other hand, need to have a flue and air supply. Therefore, they need to be on an external wall. Generally, it is best to stick with the same type of fuel you already use. That way you shouldn’t need to worry about needing to install new pipes, cables, a flue, or storage for fuel.
Central Heating Bournemouth
You’ll want to keep your central heating in top condition as well. You’ll thank yourself for doing this later on. Not only will you need to deal with less maintenance, but you can also keep the costs down this way.
Regular flushing is something you should be doing if you want to look after your system. It gives your central heating an essential health boost. This procedure flushes out any contaminated water from your system, leaving everything cleansed. A benefit of flushing would be the elimination of noisy pipework. Another is reductions in radiator cold spots.
