There’s no harm in learning more about your home’s heating system options. After all, you want to be able to comfortably make informed decisions when the time comes to upgrade or replace an old boiler. Here’s a quick overview of the different types of boilers available in Toronto and the GTA.  

3 Different Types Of Boilers You Should Know About

With so many different family sizes in Toronto and the GTA, it’s important to know more about the different types of boilers available and what each one brings to the table.

Conventional Boiler – Originally designed to serve a house, conventional boilers tend to use a large tank to store water for distribution. While this is a well-known option for producing plenty of hot water throughout taps and faucets, it does take up plenty of space in a home. This is usually best for homes with a basement where the unit can be kept a safe distance away from anything.  

System Boiler – Best suited for large families with high demand for hot water, system boilers are fitted into a sealed heating system. This allows for them to freely let hot water flow from any tap or faucet. 

Combi Boiler – Known as a combination boiler, these units best suit small spaced living or smaller households. These efficient units can be stored in a closet and are able to provide hot water on-demand to a single tap or faucet at a time. With no tank needed, combi boilers can produce as much hot water as you need. One down side to these is that since they are linked to both hot water and heating, if there is a problem, you could be left without hot water or heat until it is corrected.
