Which boilers store water?
Regular (conventional) and system boilers have a separate tank to store hot water. The tanks can provide different volumes, suiting the size of the property and the needs of the household or business. Additional tanks can increase the capacity. In homes these are commonly located in the loft.
The great thing about boilers that store water is they tend to offer better pressure. This is good for properties where multiple taps may be used simultaneously. The water will also generally be hot as soon as the tap is turned on. The drawback is they require more space for the appliance and tanks. The volume of water is also limited to what the tanks can hold.
How are combi boilers different?
Combination boilers connect directly to the mains. This means that there is no limitation on the amount of hot water that is available. They are also more compact and easier to install because there are fewer components. There are some fantastic advantages as a result.
The drawback with this type of boiler is they are generally not suitable for large properties. The pressure may not be high enough to feed several taps at once. In addition the mechanics can be quite complex, increasing the maintenance and repair costs.

Consider the cost of installation
One of the most important things to think about when you choose a boiler is how much it will cost to install. A number of factors come into place here including the size and complexity of the system.
The main thing that will affect the installation is the type of fuel you are using. Electric boilers are the easiest to install. They can be wired into the existing electrics relatively easily and don’t need any ventilation.
Gas boilers can be the trickiest to install. They require a flue and good ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide from building up. If these are already in place the job will be easier. The hardest installation is if a new gas line needs fitting and a flue is not already in place.
Conventional and system boilers are also more costly to install than combi. Of the three regular are the most complex, especially if they have multiple water tanks. System boilers have the benefit that the tank is built into the model. Although they may be large, the installation is easier. Combi are the smallest, lightest and easiest to deal with.
