A residential boiler is a self-contained appliance, and it uses water to transfer heat. There are several benefits of boilers. They are typically more efficient than forced-air systems. Because boilers do not have ducts, airborne contaminants such as dust and dirt particles, dander, and pollen do not get transmitted through the ductwork.
With proper care and maintenance, a boiler can last up to 20 years. When choosing a boiler, consider your needs and preferences. A replacement boiler can use as much as forty percent less gas than a boiler twenty years old or older.
To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of different types of residential boilers. Take a look.
96% efficient combination or combi boilers are the most popular types of boilers. They are known for their superior efficiency. One can use a combi boiler for both domestic hot water and space heating. They do not have bulky hot water tanks (and hence take up less space than other boilers and water heaters).
Combi boilers can supply hot water on demand as they do not need to refill or heat the water before it is used. Combi boilers are more cost-effective, energy-efficient, and easier to install than many other boiler types. Combi boilers, however, are not suited for a home with more than three bathrooms.
96% efficient conventional boilers, regular boilers, or heat-only boilers mostly provide heating only. Modern conventional boilers are highly efficient and take up less space than older boilers. In large homes, they can be connected to an indirect hot water storage tank to provide lots of domestic hot water.
