Gas combination boilers

A gas combination boiler, otherwise known as a combi boiler, works by heating both the home water supply and the central heating system via a single, combined unit. This means that there is no need for separate tanks for hot water, allowing for the boiler to be more compact to save space in your home. This makes a gas combination boiler the ideal choice for homes where space is at a premium, in addition to the unit being easier on the eye.

Utilising the single-unit system of a combi boiler, your home receives hot water on demand in addition to a central heating system whenever you need it. There is a small drawback to this system, however, as having instant hot water does mean that you may only be able to fill one container at a time with hot water. For example, it is possible that with a gas combination boiler you would not be able to fill both a bath and a kitchen sink with hot water simultaneously. In these cases you would need to fill one and then the other.

However, on the flipside, having just the single unit allows for money to be saved on installation. Gas combination boilers do not require a tank to be installed and there is also much less pipe work needed, making the installation much quicker and cost efficient.

Additional benefits include the fact that a combi boiler delivers water at mains pressure, meaning that you can enjoy a powerful shower without the need for an additional pump, thus further lowering installation time and cost.

Combi boilers are available in a range of power ratings that can be matched to your home’s requirements. Our Domestic and General heating engineers will be able to advise you on the correct power rating for your home so that you get the best gas combination boiler.
