System boilers provide central heating and hot water using a storage cylinder in an airing cupboard. They can satisfy high hot water demands, for example multi-bathroom properties.

The hot water in the storage cylinder is kept permanently topped up and, once exhausted, is replenished.

If the system boiler is fitted with an unvented cylinder, there is no need for a cold water storage tank in the loft.

Award-winning SolarSmart represents a technological breakthrough, making solar-based domestic water heating more accessible and cost-effective than ever before.


Combination Boilers | Great value combi boilers from Alpha Heating Innovation

The popular choice for the average family home, combi boilers provide a ‘combination’ of central heating as well as hot water, and are the most energy efficient boiler option. They deliver instant hot water when there is a demand, without the need to maintain a permanent store of hot water in a separate cylinder.


Regular Boilers | Alpha Heating Innovation

They provide central heating and hot water using an airing cupboard storage cylinder, and also require a cold water storage tank plus an expansion tank in the loft. Regular boilers, which are often referred to as ‘traditional’ or ‘conventional’ boilers, feature in most older heating systems in the UK.


FlowSmart | Alpha Heating Innovation

FlowSmart at last enables even large households to enjoy the energy efficiency benefits of the combination boiler. For homes with above average hot water demands.


GasSaver | Alpha Heating Innovation

As the boiler is heating warmed water rather than cold, an average 35% less gas is used to produce hot water, reducing your energy bills and saving up to half a ton of carbon per year. Positioned neatly above the boiler, this compact unit extracts heat from waste gases that are normally expelled into the atmosphere through the boiler flue. This is then used to pre-heat cold mains water before entering the boiler.
