Very often more reliable
Combi boilers are the UK’s best selling type of boiler when used in a gas central heating environment. The technology is reliable and durable, and adaptable to the heating demands in your home without a constant switching on and off. This results in a smoother operation, with less wear on component parts and improves reliability.
Much easier to use
In comparison to more conventional boilers, Combi boilers are very easy to use. Most of the models available on the market have an integral clock for you to set your central heating timings, improving comfort and potentially reducing fuel bills.
A Combi boiler has everything it needs to deliver hot water to taps and radiators, so doesn’t require the space of a traditional boiler, making plenty of room for a hot water cylinder and central heating pump.
Hot water is directly fed at mains pressure, and whenever it is required, enabling you to enjoy comfort and the convenience of powerful showers, quick filling baths, but remember that using several taps or feeds at once can reduce the water flow. A Combi boiler does have limitations on flow for a large and business household.
The big advantage is there is no need for a tank in the loft or indeed a hot water storage cylinder, with an added benefit in a reduced amount of pipework flowing around the house. This can be a big time and money saver when installing a Combi boiler.
The new high efficiency condensing combo boilers are incredibly energy efficient. They convert more of the gas you pay for into useable heat, saving money on your fuel bills. Particularly efficient in comparison to an older standard boiler system. If you are conscious about saving energy to reduce your carbon footprint, a Combi boiler makes a great acquisition to your home.
