Common Questions

The high efficiency condensing combination boiler is an ingenious space-saving idea. Combis are the majority of all the new domestic boilers installed in Britain every year.

 

The major difference between a combi and any other type of boiler is that a combi eliminates the need to store hot water, meaning there's no need for hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard or any feed and expansion tanks in the loft. It is both a high-efficiency water heater and central heating boiler, combined (hence the name) within one compact unit which usually installed in a kitchen, utility room, airing cupboard, loft or garage. The space savings result from the fact there is no hot water storage cylinder, cold water storage tanks or other familiar components of a regular (conventional) heating system.

 

The further benefits of this are a significant saving on hot water costs and the fact that hot water is delivered through your taps or shower at mains pressure. So you can enjoy powerful showering without the need for a pump. Another combi benefit is that it can generally save you money on installation time and costs — no tanks in the roof space means less pipework and shorter installation time.

 

A thermostatically-controlled shower safeguards against sudden changes in water temperature.

If you are replacing an older model of boiler, the chances are that you will have a regular conventional boiler. A typical conventional system incorporates a boiler, external controls, a feed and expansion tank usually located in the loft, and a hot water cylinder often found in the airing cupboard) which is fed by a cold water storage tank.

Unlike a combi, both a system boiler and a regular conventional boiler work on the principle of stored hot water, but a system boiler differs from a regular boiler in some different aspects.

 

Many of the major individual components of the heating and hot water system are built in, which means that installation is quicker, neater, easier and more efficient. The boiler includes an expansion vessel so there is no requirement for a feed and expansion tank in the loft, which allows the installation to save space.

 

Each type delivers all the benefits of high-efficiency technology, but which one you choose will depend on several factors, including your property size, your lifestyle and the demand for hot water.
