Boilers are typically used to heat water to feed heating systems or to supply hot water, or both. Boilers are most commonly fuelled by:

  • Mains gas
  • Liquid petroleum gas (LPG).
  • Wood.
  • Coal.
  • Oil.
  • Electricity.

There are a very wide range of boilers available depending on; size, fuel type, efficiency and application, and ranging from compact units used for domestic heating, to very large boilers used for industrial processes. For more information see:
