Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.
A regular boiler may be the best option for replacing an existing boiler if the property has an older radiator system, as it might not be able to cope with the higher water pressure that is delivered by system or combi boilers.

Is a regular boiler right for my home?
A regular boiler is ideal for homes with low water pressure at the mains, or busy households with a large demand for hot water.
Compared to other boilers, a regular boiler takes up more living space in the home. So for smaller houses or properties with limited or no loft space, a combi boiler or system boiler could be the ideal option for your home.
