As well as the technological advances in gas central heating boilers the number of possibilities for hot water systems has also improved.
As well as the traditional methods of hot water storage, the methods below are also becoming more common in the domestic market. 

Unvented Water Heating
Similar to conventional hot water storage it provides hot water at mains water pressure. This also eliminates the need for cold water storage in the loft.
Standard features are a high performance heat exchanger; fast heat recovery times (as low as 15 minutes); minimal heat loss (reduced boiler fire up); powerful mains pressure showering , faster filling baths and with some manufacturers offering a 25 years guarantee.
Hot Water Systems
Thermal Store
In a thermal storage system it is the water in the cylinder which is heated by the boiler, then stored and maintained at a constant temperature and pumped through the radiators as required. The water for taps and showers coming from the mains supply, is heated by the hot water in the cylinder via a highly efficient plate heat exchanger and then goes on to the taps and showers - still at mains pressure.

Combination Boilers
Combination boilers heat water as and when needed and flow rate is dependent of boiler heat output and incoming water pressure. These boilers are normally suited for homes with only one bathroom.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of new technology available and we are happy to discuss your requirements and help you make the right choice for your individual situation.
