If you have just bought a new home, your boiler has broken down or the boiler that you have is over 12 years old, then you should possibly consider a replacement. There are a variety of choices when it comes to boilers. In this post we’ll examine the reasons a Combi boiler might be suitable for you.
One of the biggest advantages of installing a combi boiler is that you can get rid of water tanks (which obviously frees up a lot of space). If you live in a flat or small house, this can be particularly important. You still need space for the boiler of course, but it is typically similar in size to a standard boiler and could go into the same space.
Further to the above point, combi boilers don’t produce or store hot water. With a regular boiler, hot water tends to be produced twice a day (in the morning and evening) regardless of whether it is used or not. This requires the boiler to fire up in order to produce the hot water, and if it doesn’t get used the water just cools down which is a waste of energy. Combi boilers are different in that they only produce hot water when you need it, like if you turn the shower on for example. It’s a real energy saved and better for the environment which serves as a key selling point!
Combi boilers are great when you have relatively small hot water demand at any one time. If you have a large household and require hot water feeds in multiple outlets at the same time – then a combi boiler might not be the most suitable. In this case a regular or system boiler might be better.
