New energy-efficient boiler

Different oil boiler types
An external storage tank holds this oil securely and requires a regular delivery once you understand how much oil your property needs for heating and hot water. There are 3 different types of oil boilers, combi, conventional and system boilers, allowing you to select the most appropriate option for your property.


Oil combi boilers have their own hot water storage tank built in, as opposed to the external components required for the conventional and system boilers.

Oil boiler replacement

Oil boilers functionally operate in the same way as any other boiler, the oil is set alight, and a heat exchanger warms up cold water from either your mains pipe or a storage tank.

The boiler then pumps the hot water through radiators within your central heating system or to your taps when hot water is required. Operationally the big difference with oil boiler and other fuel types is that an oil fired boiler requires an external oil supply.

Different Boiler Types Explained

Boiler Type: Combi

A Combination or ‘Combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space. 


  • Compact sizes make combi boilers perfect for smaller properties
  • Ideal where there is little or no loft space
  • No need for a hot water cylinder allows increased living space
  • No cold water storage tank frees up a loft for conversion
  • No risk of loft pipework freezing
  • Less pipework in the home makes installation typically cheaper

Boiler Type: Regular

Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional, heat only or back 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. 


  • Perfect for homes where a lot of hot water is used at the same time
  • Ideal where there are two or more bathrooms
  • A good option in areas where water pressure is low C
  • Compatible with solar water heating systems for a lower carbon footprint and lower energy costs

Boiler Type: System

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. 


  • Ideal for homes with more than one bathroom
  • Constant supply of hot water to any number of taps at the same time
  • No need for a loft tank, freeing up space and eliminating worries about leaks or frost damage
  • Economical to run
  • Built-in components makes installation quicker and neater

Different Boiler Controls Explained

Boiler Controls: Smart & Wireless

Easycontrol with a modern, sleek design, making it a stylish addition to any home. Colourful Ambi light shows what the heating is doing at a quick glance.

Thermostat automatically turns the heating down if no one is in the house and detects when someone is returning home, turning the heating up to the desired temperature. Compatible with Bosch smart radiator thermostats to easily control the heating in individual rooms.

Boiler Controls: Simple

This control allows you to set daily times for your central heating. Your heating will start and finish at the same times every day but you may set different temperatures for those times.


For example, you may wish to set different temperatures for night and daytime periods.
