Will the boiler system be suitable for my home?
This is a boiler system, so as such, you will need to have space for a separate water store in your home.
This can be something that you’d find in a loft space or an airing cupboard. So if you don’t have this kind of space, then it may be not the best for your home.
System boilers are usually ideal for a home that has a lot of hot water demands, such as more than one bathroom. The reason for this is that a system boiler can still work well when there are multiple showers or taps running at the same time. As the boiler has an output of 27kW, it makes it an ideal choice for medium-sized properties, as well as larger properties.
If you want to know if the ecoTEC Exclusive with Green IQ System will be a good choice for your home, then one of the best things to do is to speak to a local Gas Safe registered engineer. They can see what your home and look at what your needs will be, alongside the kind of heat output that you will be looking at, and offer advice from there.
Other than the fact that the boiler system needs to have space for separate hot water storage, there is not a lot to not like about the boiler system.
Another benefit is that it is simple and easy to install, as well as being great for cutting fuel costs.
