    Advice on system boilers

    Heating Engineers

    Hi there, I’m wondering what is the best system boiler on the market? Or which are some of the best system boilers? What are the benefits of a system boiler? What can I expect specifically to improve if I were to buy a more premium quality system boiler as opposed to a regular or budget option? Thanks!

    "Good afternoon, most boilers these days are as good as one another Vaillant, Worcester and the new Ideals are the top three we fit alot of Ideals as they aren't as expensive as the other two and are very reliable with warranty. System boiler you have the advantage of a back up hot water tank should the boiler fail but combi's you gain space and pressure hope this helps any futher assistance please get in touch.

    kind regards Lee @ Leeflame Gas and Heating Services ltd"

    "System boilers are a heat source that typically only differ from a heat only boiler in that they have their own internal pump.

    System boilers are typically on a pressurised system whereas a heat only boiler will typically be on an open vent system. Although some heat only boilers can be pressurised.

    System boilers are typically used in conjunction with a hot water cylinder most modern cylinders are unvented.

    The system boiler needs to be controlled by a programmer in conjunction with room and hot water thermostats. Zone valves are used in conjunction with the electrical controls to control the flow of primary water within the system.

    Boilers vary considerably in quality and price. The more expensive boiler should have a stainless steel heat exchanger rather than aluminium alloys on cheaper models.

    Consider Vaillant eco tec plus 6 series , ideal Vogue Max system boiler.

    Guarantees up to 10/12 years."

    "I will advise you to go for a combination boiler for its immediate hot water and heating.
    But if your present boiler is a system and you want to keep same, you should go for Vaillant or Baxi for the long warranty of 8 to ten years"
