So you know you need a 24kW boiler for your home, but maybe you’re not sure about the boiler type or which brands offer efficient 24kW boilers – thankfully, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we’ll talk you through your options for each type of boiler to help give you a head start on your decision-making journey.
But before we get into it, it’s first good to clarify if a 24kW boiler is a good fit for your home. Checking the number of radiators you have in your home is usually a good indicator of what size of boiler you’ll need. Furthermore, if you have high heating and hot water demands, such as your household using multiple bathrooms at the same time, then you might need to opt for a system or heat-only boiler rather than a combi. The table below is a rough guideline:
|No. of Radiators||Combi||System||Heat-only|
|Up to 10||24-27kW||9-18kW||9-18kW|
|Up to 15||28-34kW||18-26kW||18-26kW|
|Up to 20 (and over)||35-42kW||27-40kW||27-40kW|
It’s important to reiterate that this table is only a guideline and it’s always best to check with a professional heating engineer which output size you need based on your own circumstances, such as the number of bathrooms you have. On top of that, it’s actually a good idea to talk to multiple heating engineers.

A heat-only boiler, also known as a regular or conventional boiler, is the type of heating system you’ll likely find in older British homes (built pre-1970s). This boiler type typically isn’t recommended for modern homes by heating engineers, partially due to the extra components required (such as a cold water tank and a hot water cylinder).
However, with that being said, newer models are still being manufactured as modern, efficient and convenient replacements for those with an existing heat-only setup. We’ve compiled a list of some of the top heat-only boilers below:
