Since all new boilers are required to be condensing boilers – able to reclaim and reuse latent heat before it escapes into the atmosphere – they are far more energy efficient than their predecessors. The reclamation of this latent heat increases the efficiency of the boiler from the 75% of yesterday to more than 90% today, which translates into significant savings on your monthly energy bill.

A combi or combination boiler serves a dual purpose. It's both a highly efficient water heating system as well as a central heating system boiler at the same time. A combi boiler eliminates the need for hot and cold water storage tanks by heating water as it comes straight from the main lines. This process of heating water ‘as needed’ increases energy efficiency as there is no need to continually warm stored water. Combi boilers are:

However, with a system boiler the components of the heat and hot water system are already built into the boiler making for an easier installation. In addition there’s no need for a cold water tank in the loft; an attractive space saving feature. System boilers are:
