Why Choose a Combi Boiler?

Most new boilers installed these days are Combi boilers, and there are many good reasons for this. These nifty devices don’t just heat your home, they create hot water on demand, a system that would be a huge luxury 40 or 50 years ago. Fortunately we live in modern times, and combi boilers allow us to enjoy instant hot water on a limited budget.

As well as instant heating and hot water, a combi boiler can also contribute to a significant reduction in energy bills. It stands to reason that one boiler will cost less to heat than two. Of course that doesn’t mean your bills will be cut in half, a combination boiler will get much more use than either unit in a system with separate boilers, but you will have a much more efficient system.

Combi boilers are also fantastic for people who don’t have much space in their homes. They are usually a very small unit, and can often be hidden away in a kitchen cupboard or a small nook. They also don’t require a separate hot water tank in the loft, or a storage cylinder. This can free up a huge amount of storage space.

Combi boilers also often have lower carbon emissions than separate units, making them ideal for those of us who are environmentally conscientious. They are also very easy to use, with a simple control mechanism that anyone can operate.

As well as saving money on bills, switching to a combi boiler means a reduction in labour costs in the installation. It takes much less time to fit one boiler as opposed to two. Unlike many heating engineers, I pass on that labour saving on to my customers in the form of reduced costs.

Combi boilers do have some limitations, but for most people they will be the best possible system for their needs. However if you live in a house with multiple bathrooms you may still be best off with separate units. People in larger properties will need to invest in a larger combi boiler to adequately heat their homes and provide hot water with a single unit.
