A regular boiler is perfect if
- You already have an existing regular/conventional boiler – old radiators are sometimes unable to cope with higher water pressure delivered by system or combi boilers
- You have low water pressure in your area – as the water tank is in the loft, flow rate is controlled by gravity instead of relying on water pressure from your mains
- You have a large home where multiple taps and showers are on at the same time

What size regular boiler do I need?
The size of a regular boiler you need depends on your heating demand, which means the number of rooms and radiators in your home as well as the number of bathrooms and hot taps running at the same time.
If you have one to two bedrooms you will most likely need a boiler between 12-28 kWs. If you have three to four bedrooms you will need a boiler between 18-35 kWs and for a home with more than four bedrooms a boiler over 35 kWs will be most appropriate. Each radiator in your house adds an extra 1-2 kWs. Find out more about what size boiler you need.
Should I swap my regular boiler for a combi boiler?
While combi boilers are compact and can be more economical, they can be unfit for larger homes with higher hot water demands where regular boilers are a better fit. Regular boilers are also well suited for homes with low water pressure and old radiators.
It is possible to swap a regular boiler for a combi boiler, but it isn't suitable for every home. We recommend that you contact our professional heating experts who will be able to provide an expert recommendation.
