This type of boiler is ideally suited for larger homes with a higher number of radiators and multiple bathrooms.
As system boilers require a separate cylinder for storing hot water, it is important that you consider whether your home has enough space to accommodate this type of boiler.
It is these space considerations that prevent many homes from being able to accommodate the cylinder used with a system boiler. However, if you have an airing cupboard or spare cupboard space to hide the cylinder away, a system boiler will be suitable for installation at your property.
You might consider a system boiler as opposed to a combi boiler because you require hot water from more than one outlet at a time and you require higher levels of hot water than a combi boiler can provide.
Typically, combi boilers will only supply hot water to one shower or tap at a time. System boilers on the other hand can accommodate multiple showers and taps calling for hot water at the same time.
This makes system boiler installations ideal for homes with multiple bathrooms.
You might consider a system boiler as opposed to a conventional boiler system for a number of reasons. These include a lack of space in the loft for the header tanks which feed the hot water cylinder and maintain the water level in the radiators.
Other reasons for considering a system boiler rather than a conventional boiler could be due to your home suffering from low water pressure or because it has older radiators that aren’t suitable for the high pressures system boilers provide.
