Condensing boilers are not just a boiler type - instead they are an addition a boiler can have. For example: A condensing combi boiler or a condensing conventional boiler.
Condensing boilers are highly efficient because they capture some of the heat which would escape from the flue of a non-condensing boiler and re-use it. This means they get more heat from the same amount of fuel, which will save you money on your heating bills.
All gas boilers since 2005 are condensing
(some exceptional circumstances are allowed for non-condensing boilers)
High Efficiency (Energy-efficient) Boilers
Since 2010 all new boilers are energy-efficient. Boilers account for roughly 55% of your energy bill in a year, so an efficient boiler can make a big difference.

Combi Boilers (Combination Boilers):
Combi boilers can provide heat and hot water with no need for water tanks or cylinders. They come in either a gas or electric.
Pros - unlimited heat and hot water when you need it.
there's no need for a tank and they don't take up much space.
Cons - water pressure might be reduced if using hot water for more than one tap at a time.
Suitable for almost any home, but best for homes where lots of people won't need lots of hot water at the same time.
Tankless - On-Demand Water Heaters:
A tankless water heater or On-Demnd units are generally considered more energy efficient because they heat water only when needed. Once the tap is turned on, the heater turns on to work and supplies continuous hot water. A tankless water heater often requires less space and can be hung on a wall, it may require larger gas lines and special venting or additional electric circuits that add to the upfront costs of installation. However, a tankless water heater has a life expectancy of 15-20 years and may reduce water heating bills as much as 30%
Condensing Water Heaters:
Condensing water heaters offer an option if you heat with gas and need a unit with a capacity of more than 55 gallons They have a tank, like that of a conventional water heater, which captures the hot exhaust gases that would normally go out the flue and put them to work to heat the water in the tank. The exhaust gases are blown through a coil in the base of the unit, where incoming cold water can absorb most of the heat, making them very efficient.
Pros - the most energy-efficient, gas-fired tank-style water heater,
you’ll never run out of hot water.
Cons - Cost is higher than conventional units
It requires gas line and venting reconfiguration.
