A combination boiler - commonly referred to as the combi boiler - is the most popular form of central heating systems available today. It is constructed in a way that doesn't require a feed tank, expansion tank or hot water cylinder, since the water is only heated when you require it. This in turn means that the boiler takes up significantly less space than other, more robust solutions, and you can use that leftover loft space that you would otherwise use for all the boiler tanks for something more entertaining. There is no risk of pipes freezing over, they're a great solution for showers, and provide you with an unlimited supply of hot water on demand. It should be noted, however, that the flow rate is quite low in a combi boiler, and due to the fact that no hot water is stored as back-up, the combination boiler is not a reliable choice for a home with more than one bathroom.
A relatively new invention in the field of boilers, the flow boiler produces both hot water and electricity at the same time, making it a versatile tool for both heating your water and powering various electrical appliances around the household. It qualifies as a type of combined heat and power (CHP) boiler - these have been used in commercial areas with great effect for quite a while, which goes to show that the output of CHP boilers is quite high - high enough to reliably supply a larger area with hot water. One of the biggest benefits of a flow boiler is that it can help you save money in the long-term, even if the initial cost is higher than that of a standard boiler. At the same time, you will require a separate hot water tank in order for it to function, so it's definitely not a space-saving option.
Electric water boilers are the best hot water solution for you if you have no access to gas or simply prefer not to use it in your household. The device is comprised of a large water tank with an inlet and outlet with a great number of electric heating elements that keep the water warm at all times. An electric boiler is the most efficient form of water heating with no exhaust fuel needed. Compared to a traditional gas boiler, it takes up far less space, as you don't have to have the space to store propane units. As a device not requiring many additional accessories, they are also fairly cheap to install and very easy to maintain. However, compared to the heat achieved by gas burning, electric boilers can be a bit less heat-efficient.
