Combi boilers are the most popular heating and hot water solution in the UK. Over 15 million have been fitted across the country and they are now the preferred choice for most householders and installers. Worcester was the pioneer of the combi boiler in the UK, with the Greenstar range developed to suit virtually all homes.
A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space. They are also very cost-effective and energy-efficient as water is heated instantly rather than being heated and then stored in a cylinder. An added benefit is that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, which means that you could get a powerful shower without the need for a separate pump.
Greenstar system boilers are known for their high quality and reliability, making them robust enough to stand up to the highest of heating and hot water demands.
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself, making it quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft, so it can be an option in a home with little or no loft space or where the space is earmarked for a conversion. These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as lower energy bills.
With quality and reliability at the heart of every Worcester regular boiler, they are robust enough to deliver efficient heating and hot water year after year.
Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system. A regular boiler may be the best option for replacing an existing boiler if the property has an older radiator system, as it might not be able to cope with the higher water pressure that is delivered by system or combi boilers.
