What is a combination boiler?
A combination boiler, or a combi-boiler is so called because it provides hot water for the central heating system, and hot water taps, all at once. And it does not use a storage tank. Instead, it heats the water directly from the mains when needed, and distributes this around the central heating system, as one combined system.
Advantages of a Worcester Bosch Combination Boiler
There are many advantages of a combination boiler. These include:
- unlimited hot water
- smaller size
- less pipework
- good water pressure
Combination boilers provide unlimited hot water
While conventional boilers filled up a hot water storage tank to provide the home with hot water and heating, a combination boiler does not. And this means that you will never run out of hot water. Unlike conventional boilers when the storage tank became empty. This also means you won’t have to wait for the tank to be filled back up. Instead, you can have hot water whenever you need it.
However, because the water is heated directly from the mains, it is not usually possible to have the hot water running at two taps at once with a combination boiler. While this can be achieved with a conventional boiler.
Smaller size, less pipework
Because combination boilers do not require storage tanks or cylinders, they take up a lot less space in your home. So instead of having to install your boiler in the loft, it can now reside in your kitchen or airing cupboard. It can even be boxed in so you dont have to look at it.
As well as the small size, combination boilers require less pipework. And this means that they are generally easier to install.
