Do I Have an Open Vent or Sealed Boiler System?
Before diving into the details of regular boilers, it’s important to determine whether your home has an open vent or a sealed system. Open vent systems have a feed and expansion tank in the loft, allowing the cylinder to draw in fresh water from the main supply. Sealed systems, on the other hand, are pressurized and do not require a separate water feed and expansion tank in the loft. This information is crucial in selecting the right type of heat-only boiler for your home.
How Does a Heat-Only Boiler Work?
A heat-only boiler is a traditional central heating that operates by supplying hot water to radiators and a separate cylinder to provide domestic hot water. It works by heating water directly in the heat exchanger and then circulating it through the central heating system to supply hot water. The heat-only boiler is controlled by a programmer and room thermostat, allowing you to set the desired temperature and schedule.
Which Homes Are Most Suited for Heat-Only Boilers?
Heat-only boilers are particularly suited for homes with high hot water demands or multiple bathrooms. They are an excellent choice for properties with existing open vent systems, as they can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure. If your home has low water pressure or limited space, a heat-only boiler can be the ideal heating solution.
What is the Difference Between a Heat Only and a System Boiler?
One common question homeowners often have is the difference between a heat-only boiler and a system boiler. While both types provide hot water for heating purposes, there are some key distinctions. A heat-only boiler provides heat for the radiators and requires a separate hot water cylinder just for storing water. In contrast, a system boiler supplies higher water pressure for the showers and the cylinder will be fed from the main supply. The heating and hot water components still will be used, and you still need a separate hot water storage cylinder.
Why Choose a Heat-Only Boiler?
There are several compelling reasons to choose a heat-only boiler for your home:
1. Reliability: Heat-only boilers have a long-standing reputation for reliability and durability. They have been widely used in homes across the UK for many years, providing consistent and efficient solutions.
2. Flexible Installation: Heat-only boilers are versatile and can be easily integrated into old heating systems if you have an open vent system. This flexibility makes them a suitable choice for various property types.
3. Hot Water Demand: If your household has high hot water demands but low water pressure, such as multiple bathrooms or to feed a large family, a heat-only boiler can provide the necessary supply of hot water without compromising performance.
4. Space-saving: Heat-only boilers are generally compact in size, making them an ideal choice for homes with limited space. They can be conveniently installed in cupboards or utility rooms, freeing up valuable space in your home.
What Size Heat Boiler Do I Need?
Determining the right size heat-only boiler for your home is crucial to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. Factors such as the size of your property, the number of radiators, and the hot water demand of multiple radiators should be considered in the size of the boiler too. It’s advisable to call MML Plumbing about your installation options. Our gas engineer will answer all of your questions about the heat-only boiler installation.
How Do Heat-Only Boilers Work?
Heat-only boilers operate by heating water directly in the boiler, which is then circulated through the heating system. The boiler is controlled by a programmer and room thermostat, allowing you to set the desired temperature and schedule. When the thermostat is turned on, the boiler will fire and heat the water in the heat exchanger. The heated water is then distributed to the radiators, providing warmth throughout your home. In addition, a separate cylinder stores hot water for domestic use.

What is a Heat Only Boiler?
A heat-only boiler, also known as a regular or conventional boiler, is a heating system that has one water tank. The boiler supplies hot water to radiators and a separate cylinder for domestic hot water. It is called “heat only” because it solely the hot water tank focuses on providing heat for the central heating, while the domestic hot water is stored separately.
How Much Does a Heat-Only Boiler Cost?
