Central Heating Systems

Using a central heating system simply means heating your home or office from one source. The boiler is the main part of your heating system. It heats water and distributes the hot water to other parts of your home: your kitchen, bathroom, and other heating units in your bedrooms or living room.

A central heating system is an investment you would want to maximize. When used properly and with care, your heating system can help you feel more comfortable in your home. You can even lessen your power bills.


Types of Central Heating Systems

There are two main types of central heating systems. A conventional boiler is the simplest to use and probably the most reliable. It includes two water tanks and a cylinder for heating. This means that water needs time to heat.

A combination boiler, on the other hand, does not have tanks or a cylinder. It saves you a lot of space and there is no need to pre-heat the water, However, it can only support one to two water sources at a time and is not recommended for homes with several bathrooms or multiple users.

There are also other alternate water heating systems such as those that are unvented.
