Conventional Boiler heating systems are made up of various parts including a hot water tank, cold water storage tank, boiler and heating controls. Conventional boilers are suitable for homes and properties that already have a traditional heating and hot water system, which is connected to a hot water tank. These heating systems are most often found in older, larger homes. Conventional boiler installations are becoming less popular as more homeowners switch to a more efficient combi boiler system.
A new conventional boiler might be the best option for replacing an existing boiler, if the home or property has an old radiator system. This is as the existing heating system may not be able to cope with the higher water pressure that is delivered by combi or system boilers.
How Does A Conventional Boiler Work?
A conventional boiler uses gas to heat water that is stored in a hot water tank, that is fed by a cold water storage tank. A conventional boiler feeds the water for the central heating through the system and a feed expansion tank.
Reasons To Install A Conventional Boiler
- Conventional boilers can send hot water to multiple taps at the same time, without the pressure of the hot water reducing. This makes them suitable for larger households with multiple bathrooms.
- When a conventional boiler is installed you get a hot water and cold water tank.
- An electric immersion heater can be installed in the hot water cylinder. This means you can still generate hot water if your boiler breaks down.
Things To Consider Before You Install A Conventional Boiler
- You only have as much hot water as your hot water cylinder can hold. Once this runs out you will need to wait for it to heat back up.
- You must have space for a hot water cylinder and cold water tank to be installed. The cold water tank is usually installed in the loft.
- You need to plan ahead when you need hot water. The boiler has controls so you can set the hot water tank to heat up at certain times or on demand.
