Looking for a new boiler for your two-bedroom house or flat but don’t know where to start? Our boiler experts at Warmable are here to help! We know how overwhelming the world of boilers can be –  that’s why we’ve prepared this comprehensive guide on everything you need to know to find the best boiler for your two-bedroom home.

Choosing the Right Size Boiler for a Two-Bed Home

The size of your boiler, also known as output, is the amount of power your boiler has (measured in kilowatts or kW). Therefore, choosing the right size boiler for your home involves choosing one with enough power to heat your home – in this case, a two-bedroom house or flat.

In the UK, domestic boilers vary from 24 to 42kW. When making the decision, you need to balance both price and power output – a boiler that is not too expensive to run and maintain yet is powerful enough to sufficiently heat your home.

Things to consider:

  • How many people are in your home?
  • How many radiators are in your home?
  • How many bathrooms are in your home?

These factors can help determine what boiler size will suit your needs. The majority of two-bedroom properties tend to only have one bathroom and around four radiators. Based on this, our Warmable boiler experts recommend a boiler size of between 24-27kW.

How to Choose the Right Boiler Type for a Two-Bedroom Property

After we’ve considered the size of the boiler we need, we need to think about the boiler type. Combi boilers with an output of 24kW can comfortably cater to up to 10 radiators as well as supply one bathroom with hot water at mains pressure. It is also a space-efficient option which is a bonus for those looking to save space in their two-bedroom home.

For a two-bedroom home, the best option is a combi boiler with an output of between 24-27kW.

But what type of combi boiler? There are three types to choose from:

  • Gas-powered
  • Oil-powered
  • Electric

For those living in a two-bedroom house or flat connected to the gas network, a gas combi boiler is probably your best option. As well as being readily available across the UK, it is also relatively cheap and easy to install.

Oil combi boilers use oil to heat water and send it to the taps and radiators throughout your home. It relies on a constant fuel source which, in this case, is a tank of oil. If you live in a two-bedroom home without a gas connection, an oil combi boiler might be a good option.

Homes in the UK without access to gas or oil tend to rely on electric combi boilers. These boilers have nearly 100% efficiency and, as they don’t rely on fossil fuels, they don’t release any harmful emissions. However, it is a potentially more expensive option and will lead to increased energy bills.
