Throughout Europe, boilers are the most popular appliance for providing central heating and hot water in the home. Depending on what fuel is available, boilers can run on natural gas, liquid gas, oil or electricity. Boilers can be wall hung or floor standing. Wall hung boilers are more popular because they take up less space than floor standing boilers. However, traditionally, floor standing boilers have a higher output and are especially suitable for larger properties.
- Combination boilers or ‘combi's’, provide central heating and instant hot water so they do not need a separate water storage cylinder.
- System boilers are often referred to as sealed system boilers. They provide central heating and hot water via a storage cylinder housed in an airing cupboard.
- Boilers with Domestic Hot Water (DHW) tank; some boilers have an integral hot water storage tank. These combination-store, or combi store, boilers are usually floor standing, but also exist as wall hung models.
The term condensing, or high efficiency, means the boiler recovers more heat from the amount of oil or gas that is burnt, making it more efficient than conventional boilers. By recovering and using heat that would otherwise be lost up the flue, the best condensing boilers are more than 90% efficient. Although condensing boilers cost more initially, they are very economical to use, and can pay back the initial extra cost in fuel savings. Condensing boilers also have lower emissions of toxic gases making them more environment-friendly.
