    Why choose a conventional boiler?

    Conventional heat-only boilers

    Whilst a conventional heat-only boiler unit can be bought for reasonable prices, you have to take into account the cost of water storage tanks (if you don't have them already installed).

    Installation and maintenance costs can be higher due to the additional water storage tanks and your hot water tank needs to be well insulated to prevent heat loss, which increases your energy bills.

    However, if you already have water tanks installed then this is the cheapest option.

    Conventional heat-only boiler units can be quite compact, so the unit can be fitted in a kitchen unit, but the additional water storage tanks take up loads of room in your loft so they're not ideal.

    A conventional heat-only boiler will be able to cater for larger homes, unlike a combi boiler.
