What exactly is a combi boiler?

A Combi boiler is a single-unit system that does not require an external cold-water tank or hot-water cylinder. Combi boilers heat water and provide heat to the home via radiators. Combi boilers deliver instant hot water by remaining on standby all of the time. The boiler will start as soon as you turn on the hot water tap, and hot water will be accessible immediately.

When a user selects the hot water tab and requests hot water, the boiler is notified to begin heating the water inside the system, resulting in immediate hot water supply. The heat exchanger in the combi boiler transfers the majority of the heat from the burned gas inside the boiler to the cold water, heats it up, and then distributes it to the taps as needed.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a combi boiler?

Let’s have a look at the pros and cons of having a combi boiler installed:

Pros of combi boilers
  • High Efficiency – Combi boilers are extremely energy efficient. Switching from a traditional boiler to a combi boiler can help you save money on your heating bills.
  • More Affordable – When compared to a typical heating system, the cost of installing a combi boiler is inexpensive. Combi boiler parts are very easy to come by. The entire combi boiler system is less complicated, and installation is simpler.
  • Speed – Combi boilers are more efficient than traditional boilers. There is no need to wait for hot water to arrive. On demand, you will have an infinite supply of hot water.
  • Space Saving – Combi boilers are small and compact. They don’t have a separate storage tank for cold and hot water. As a result, they’re great when space is at a premium.
  • Clean Water Supply – You won’t have to worry about sludge build-up because the water comes directly from the mains and isn’t held in a tank. The water that comes out of the taps will be significantly cleaner.
  • Water is Safe to Drink – Drinking the cold water provided by the combi boiler is safer. Because there is no storage tank and the water comes directly from the mains, it is safe to drink.
  • Fewer Pressure Issues – When you use a combi boiler system, you won’t have to worry about air locks or low pressure. The hot water is supplied straight from the mains.

 

Cons of combi boilers
  • Depends on Mains Pressure – When the mains pressure is adequate, the combi boiler will function effectively. It’s a good idea to get the pressure in the mains verified before installing a combi boiler.
  • No Need For Water Tank – The hot water storage tank on a combi boiler isn’t large enough to store hot water for subsequent use. Your home will be without hot water and heating if the boiler fails.

 

Are combi boilers cheaper to run?

Put simply, yes.

Energy efficiency is the most popular reason for users to move from conventional to combi boilers and according to the Energy Saving Trust, replacing your 10 to 15 year old boiler with an A-rated combi boiler can save you up to 40% on your energy cost.

Over time, the efficiency of your ageing boiler may decrease from 70% to 50%. Every £100 spent on energy bills will result in a loss of £30 to £50.
