What is a system boiler
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself, making it quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft, so it can be an option in a home with little or no loft space or where the space is earmarked for a conversion.
These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as lower energy bills.

Is a system boiler right for my home?
If you live in a home with more than one bathroom, or have demand for larger volumes of hot water for the family, then a system boiler could be ideal.
However, the hot water tank is usually stored in an airing cupboard, and the main boiler unit contains most of the major components. So for smaller households a combi boiler could be a better option.
If you have low water pressure to your property, a regular or heat-only boiler would also be better suited.
