The Gas Boiler Basics You Should Know
In the UK with our climate, the boiler system in a property is one of the really essential components of a safe and comfortable property. However, we find from our customers that knowledge of different boiler types and pros and cons of each isn’t well understood. Here then is our brief guide to the main types of hot-water boiler.
The most popular boiler is the condensing boiler and this is by far the most common type of installation found in Cardiff housing (although there are different examples (such as Glow-worm for example). These are very energy-efficient in operation and able to release usable (rather than lose) 90% of their generated heat. There are a couple of common types;
These units provide both hot and cold water. Because of this combination of hot and cold features, these systems are very affordable and relatively straightforward to install. The downside is a lower pressure and generally only sustainably good pressure through a single tap or faucet at a time. Again, this varies according to make and model (and cost). We can advise if required, please ask when you contact us.
The systems provide hot water only with cold water tanked and delivered separately. This approach resolves the problem with pressure encountered by combi boilers but these systems are generally larger and less efficient.
As you can see, there are a number of options for different types of Cardiff boiler installations. If you are thinking of installation or replacement we recommend considering;
- What space is available and where
- Do you have Gas into the property
- What is the size of your property
- Might local planning permission be required from Cardiff area authorities?
- How practical is a fuel supplier (Oil, wood) in your area if thinking about an Oil or Biomass boilers

Our Top Tips To Consider When Having A New Boiler Installation
If you feel your heating system is old and outdated, then you should consider replacing the boiler with a new one. Many people prefer to repair the boiler instead of replacing it thinking this will save money. However, replacement of this unit can be a good long-term investment and save money overall. Of course, there are several other considerations to take into account before making a final decision on having a boiler installed. Here are the key areas we suggest you focus on when considering having a new installation fitted.
Focus On Modern Technology
It is important to understand that keeping up to date with technology can be a good means of saving money. In the case of Gas boiler fitting in Cardiff, this means that new versions are far more efficient than older systems. In fact, statistics indicated that older systems operate at approximately 60% less efficiency when compared to the new technology. It is seen that newer boiler units can operate at 80-90% efficiency; thereby, increasing energy efficiency and saving money on energy expenses.
Look At How The System Works
The method whereby the latest boiler system technology is more energy efficient revolves around the manner in which it operates. Unlike older systems, new systems use the steam provided by heated water and reuse the energy instead of leaving it to escape. This means that less water is used or wasted and the water only heats when required.
Make Sure A Modern Thermostat Is Part Of The Fitting
Another tip to consider for money saving on a replacement is to ensure that new boiler systems use updated thermostat controls. An updated thermostat control allows for simpler regulation of temperature ensuring that no heat is being wasted by having the water hotter than it is.
Get Advice On What Fits Your Particular Needs
There are various models of heating systems currently available on the market; therefore, it is important you obtain the correct advice as to which is most suited for your needs. The suitable type will be dependent on the boiler location in your house as there are regulations that need to be considered. The regulations for installation can be identified and assessed using a trained engineer, and it is recommended you use a professional’s service before making a final decision about boiler installation.
Don’t Make Price The Only Deciding Factor
Don’t allow yourself to be put off by the price of having new boiler installations fitted as there may be local grants available dependent on your residential location. This is because certain local authorities encourage greener living which could result in you paying a fraction of what you think. Be sure to research greener initiatives when searching for a boiler installation to see if you qualify for benefits.
