Does Your Home Have A Combination Boiler?

A combination or combi boiler is by far the most popular type of boiler in the UK with over half of all households having one. They heat hot water for your taps, shower and radiators directly from your mains water supply. Therefore, you have no need to install a cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the loft. Combi boilers are perfect for flats with no space for a cylinder or storage tank as well as bungalows and small homes where space is at a premium.

Combination boilers are highly energy-efficient ways of providing hot water and heating for your home within one compact unit. Combi boilers provide you with heated water for your radiators and hot water for your showers without the need for a separate water cylinder, storage tank or water pump. With a combination boiler, your home is supplied with an unlimited quantity of hot water at mains pressure, day and night.
Our qualified plumbers can repair or install the perfect combination boiler for your home. If you live in a flat or a small home, we can give you the no-obligation advice you need before deciding whether you want a new, high-efficiency combination boiler or want to improve your existing central heating system. Combi boilers are the ideal solution for homes with a high mains water pressure where there is little chance that more than one person will be using hot water at a time. Combi boilers are quicker and cheaper to install than a regular or system boiler as there is no need to install the pipe work to a separate cylinder or storage tank.
Combi boilers are highly energy efficient but aren’t suitable for homes with low mains water pressure as they have no water pump. Homes with more than one bathroom are unlikely to find combi boilers beneficial as water temperature and pressure will drop when hot water is required in more than one room at a time. Homes with combi boilers must install a thermostatic mixer shower that can automatically adjust variations in the incoming water temperature. This prevents sudden drops in temperature.
