There are just three main types of boiler made by all manufacturers including Worcester: Combi, System and Regular (aka Conventional, Traditional and Heat-only).
If your home is set up for a combination boiler, it supplies heat when taps and radiators are turned on. A hot water storage tank or cold water feed tank are not required. Combis are very cost-effective and energy efficient because water is heated ‘on demand’ for instant use, not stored in a tank.
These water heating units are usually installed in properties that have a large cold water feed (often a storage-type tank in the loft) and also a hot water tank (typically in an airing cupboard). It directly heats radiators but hot water (for taps and showers) is heated via a coil in the hot water tank and then stored until the heated water is required. An external central heating pump ensures hot water is distributed around your home when required.
Similar to a regular boiler but space for a cold water storage or feed tank (in a loft, say) is not required. Installation can be quicker and easier because a system boiler houses a central heating pump and expansion mechanism.
Choosing the best boiler for your home
Aura Gas understand it can be can be difficult, even confusing, to try to sift through such a wide range of boilers with features such as differing power outputs, flow rates, water tank requirements, etc.
That’s why we offer a free home appointment where we assess your current boiler and heating system set-up, your living space and hot water requirements.
The heating team at Aura Gas select the most appropriate Worcester Bosch boiler that will help ensure your hot water and heating needs are perfectly met. For instance, a home with gas central heating can cut energy bills by several hundred pounds when an old, non-condensing boiler is replaced with a new Worcester condensing water heating unit. Further efficiencies are achieved by picking the most suitable type and size for your property (based on factors such as number of bathrooms, number of residents at your home and living space to be kept warm).
We discuss your requirements, agree on the boiler required and finally supply a fixed price for installation – with no obligation to buy.
