What’s the difference between a heat, system and a combi?

The main difference between the two is the heat boiler says what it does on the tin. It gives heat. The boiler cannot determine between a command for hot water and heating.

Heat only models work with a separate hot water cylinder and cold-water storage tank, which is generally found in loft spaces.


A combi or combination boiler on the other hand does know the difference between the demand for hot water and heating, it uses a diverter valve to change between the two. This type does not require a tank and it will provide hot water just the same. But, if you have a busy household with multiple bathrooms, and more than one person takes a shower at the same time, you can notice a pressure drop. It is common for those with a combi boiler to also have an electric shower. This prevents a drop in water pressure when you have something else running at the same time, for example, a dishwasher.


And Finally, the System boiler, this like the heat boiler. It has a cylinder to store hot water, but it does not need a storage tank. This boiler is ideal for those who have a larger home with limited storage in the loft.
