Types of Boilers
There are two main types of boilers. The main difference between the two designs boils down to the location of the heat source and the water.
Firetube boilers feature a central tube that fills with hot gasses from a burner. This central tube (the firetube) is surrounded by water that turns heat into steam through conduction. It will then make its way through your home to provide heat. These steam boilers are typically less expensive and take up less space than their water tube counterparts.
As the name suggests, water tube boilers fill their central tube with water. The water heats via convection thanks to the hot flue gasses which surround the tube. Watertube boilers tend to be more efficient and are commonly used in process industries.
Acting as both a boiler and a water heater, combi boilers provide central heat to your home and provide hot water to taps. Combi boilers heat water on demand, eliminating the need for a storage tank. This makes them rather efficient, however, combi boilers can struggle to simultaneously provide hot water to multiple taps.
