You need to decide if have space for a hot water tank first with a conventional heat only boiler or if you prefer to free up space with a combination boiler.

Heat Only Boilers are ideally suited to larger or family homes where several people use the hot water at the same time. They do require space for a hot water tank and a cold feed tank which is usually in the loft space. Conventional boilers are much simpler and therefore tend to be quite robust as there is less to go wrong!

Combination Boilers (combi Boilers) are great for space saving as everything is contained within the boiler and water is heated as it is needed. This is efficient and saves space. However, they are more complex so can be less robust than a conventional boiler and only one person can use the hot water at a time.
