How does a system boiler workA system boiler, (also known as a ‘sealed system’) works on the principle of stored hot water. However differs slightly as many of the systems found in a conventional system are self contained within the one housing.
This means that hot water is pumped from the system boiler through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, this results in a fast response time and more economical running costs.
A system boiler is recommended for larger homes with multiple bathrooms or en-suites.
Benefits of using a system boilerSystem boilers carry a number of benefits these include:
- near instant, unlimited domestic hot water
- These types of boiler have no tank(s) in your loft – which is good if you either have no loft or limited loft space
- More than one hot tap / shower can easily operate at same time
DisadvantagesAs with all boilers there are some disadvantages. these include:
- Hot water is not instant but is still quite quick
- Once the water in the storage cylinder runs out you have to wait for it to reheat.
- You’ll need to find space for the cylinder (usually an airing cupboard)
