How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?

If you have a large house and greater demands for heating and hot water, you’re probably going to need the 25kW or 32kW unit. Smaller households with lower demands should steer towards the 18kW version. You must keep in mind that this is just a rough guide, though.
