The most popular type of boiler in use around the UK is the combi boiler. This combines a water heater and a central heating system and means there’s no need for an external water tank. A system boiler needs an external tank to store hot water then the heating is carried out from the boiler. And the third option is the standard boiler where hot and cold water tanks are used. We can help you see what type of boiler is the best fit for your home.
Generally, boiler lifespan is around 10-15 years. This depends on the model of the boiler and how well it is serviced. If a boiler is starting to break down more often this is a sign that it is nearing the end of its lifespan.
Most boiler manufacturers recommend that you get the boiler serviced every 12 months. This prolongs the lifespan and picks up any problems that may be building up. It may also be a part of the warranty for newer boilers.
Boilers have a rating system with A-rated being the top, most energy efficient boiler. This is called an Energy Star. The better the rating of the boiler, the more efficient it will be to run.
