Tanks and boilers are often located in the loft – these are header tanks for heating systems, and water tanks for the hot water system. The hot water tank itself is usually located in the airing cupboard. Your existing boiler system might not be adequate for your new loft conversion, in which case, all three tanks and be removed and replaced with a single combi boiler system.
Changing boilers and tanks in lofts
In most cases, the best option is to install a new combi boiler in your home. This can run two bathrooms and two showers just fine. If you have three bathrooms or three showers, a system change will be required. An unvented cylinder and pressurised system will usually be best, and no shower pumps are required. This will give an adequate flow rate for the whole of your home.
New boiler systems can easily be fitted into lofts. They can be located in a secure place, freeing up space in your home. We can advise you on your options when we carry out your survey.
