There is only one boiler and that is an Intergas boiler. Intergas boilers can be fitted to any system because any Intergas boiler can be either a heat only boiler, a system boiler, a combi boiler or even just a water heater. This is beneficial for anyone who has an old gravity system and need a new boiler but can not currently afford to convert the heating system at the same time. You now have the option to replace the old broken boiler now and convert the heating system in the future. For more info contact Pavlou Plumbers.

There are three main types of boiler all A rated efficient and condensing. A combi boiler will heat your radiators directly and switch to hot water on demand A system boiler will heat your radiators and your hot water storage cylinder set to the programme you desire, it also provides expansion and fill so does not require a feed tank in loft. A heat only boiler will make up part of the conventional system, loft tanks, copper cylinder, pump and motorised valves.

There are 3 types of domestic Gas boilers. All new boilers fitted are condensing boilers and new installations have to comply with ‘Boiler Plus’ regulations. Combination boiler: This type of boiler heats hot water instantaneously as the water passes through it. They are space saving as no other cylinders or tanks are required. The heating system is pressurised. System Boiler: These are usually fitted with an unvented cylinder or sometimes even a copper cylinder. A system boiler heats the hot water indirectly via a storage cylinder. It has some integral parts of the heating system built in ie the pump and expansion vessel and the heating system will be pressurised. Conventional/ Regular boiler: This type of boiler heats a copper cylinder indirectly. You will also have 2 tanks in the loft space to feed the hot water cylinder and heating system. The heating is low pressure fed via the header tank and the hot water pressure is also gravity fed. The controls are external unlike a system boiler.

Domestic gas boilers mainly come in 3 types. Heat Only: This is your conventional boiler, the only job of the boiler it's self is to heat the heating system water. These systems have an external pump, zone valves, thermostats and controls along with a separate hot water cylinder and cold water tanks. System Boiler: A system boiler still need a separate hot water tank but the boiler it's self will have its own built in pump, filling loop, expansion vessel and pressure relief valve. Combi Boiler: A combi boiler doesn't need any form of water storage tanks or external components. The boiler unit provides instant hot water on demand or heating. It has its own built in pump, diverter valve, filling loop, expansion vessel and pressure relief valve.
