Compare Conventional Boiler Prices
Heat-Only boilers are also known by a few other names including open vent, conventional or regular. They have a hot water cylinder, a cold-water storage tank and a feed and expansion tank. Most people choose to replace heat-only boilers, as they are an older style of boiler and are usually replaced with combi boilers which are smaller, therefore saving space.
Heat-only boilers are still a great choice for some households despite being an older boiler type, they can typically cope with a much larger demand for hot water and are often chosen for large homes or commercial properties.
Heat-only boilers, how do they work?
Considering purchasing a new heat only boiler? Sometimes known as a traditional, conventional or regular boiler this is a traditional heating and hot water system that has a seperate cold water storage tank and hot water cylinder that maintains the water level of the central heating.
The heat-only boiler uses a storage cistern with two feeds with one for cold water and one for hot. The water is then pumped through the system into either of the storage tanks and is used as needed. The reason that heat-only boilers are good for larger properties is that they don’t rely on pressure as much as other boiler types.

Heat-only boiler installation price
Having a new conventional boiler installed can change in price significantly dependant on what system you currently have in place and loads of other factors. The best way to determine the cost of installation is by having a surveyor visit your home as it’s impossible to provide you with a price without asking a lot of technical questions.
Here are just a few of the factors that determine how much your installation could cost:
• There may be extra parts that are required as part of the installation which will bring up the overall price, there could also be building work.
• Some regular boilers can be easier to install than others.
• Installation price can also be determined by where you live, as the location may have a high demand and installers may be limited.
• If you’re planning on chaning where your boiler is located or any of the tanks, then it will usually cost you more.
• If the swap is a like for like heat-only boiler swap, then it should be a lot cheaper due to the other elements like the water tanks which are required.
What Heat-only boiler do I need?
Regular boilers are typically for larger homes, but can also be supplied and fitted in smaller homes. The most important thing to look at when looking for a new boiler for your house is the kW output which determines the ability the boiler has to cope with the demand for hot water.

|10 radiators||15 radiators||20 radiators|
