What are the advantages of having boiler cover?

Boiler breakdown cover cuts down the hassle and stress of having to find a repairer in an emergency and can help cut down on the time you are without heat or water.

Central-heating faults can be hard to find and expensive to repair, so heating cover can offer peace of mind and the assurance that a problem can be fixed quickly. You can also avoid an unexpected and potentially expensive repair bill.

What types of boiler are there?

There are three main types of gas boilers: conventional, condensing and combination. Electric boilers can also be used in conventional heating systems, and are compact and light.

What is a conventional boiler?

A conventional boiler burns fuel in a combustion chamber surrounded by a water jacket. This heats the water, which is then circulated around the heating system.

With a conventional boiler not all the heat produced by the burning fuel is used to heat the water; some of it is lost to the surrounding air, and some disappears up the flue.

What is a condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers burn fuel to heat the water in a similar way to a conventional boiler, but are more efficient as they convert as much as possible of the heat normally wasted from the flue of a conventional (non-condensing) boiler.

They can convert more than 90 per cent of the fuel they use into useful heat, compared to around 78 per cent for a new conventional boiler. They are, however, more expensive to buy than a conventional boiler.

What is a combination boiler?

Combination or combi boilers are a type of condensing boiler that provides instant hot water and central heating. They are energy efficient, cheap to run and compact, and as you don't need to store hot water in a tank, they save valuable space.
