What is a Combi boiler?
Combi boilers get their name from a high-efficiency water heater and central boiler system. This combination comes in one compact unit. The hot water is heated and ready to go as soon as you turn on a hot water tap or shower. Unlike a conventional or system boiler, there’s no need for a storage tank.
Over the last decade or so, Combi boilers have become popular across the UK. More than 70% of households already have this type of unit installed.
Why are Combis in such demand?
Due to their small size and the ability to heat water instantly, Combis are in big demand. They are more suited to smaller homes, small families or couples. It’s possible to have an oil-fired Combi boiler installed, although LPG and gas models are also an option.
The benefits of a Combi boiler
If you’re thinking of having a Combi boiler installed, you’re onto a winner. There are many benefits in having this type of heating system in your home.
– More efficient: Combi boilers are very efficient when compared to boilers that are older. Replacing your old boiler with a Combi could save you around £300 a year on heating bills.
– Quicker: with no water tank to heat up, Combis can provide an unlimited supply of hot water on demand.
– Fewer pressure issues: Combis are less likely to suffer from pressure issues such as low pressure or air-locks. This is because the hot water is taken directly from the water mains.
– Easy to service: due to their popularity, Combis are easy to service by boiler engineers.
