So Should I choose A Combi Boiler?
The first thing is to determine the type of boiler which suits you: combi is short for a combination boiler.
Combi boilers are the type of boilers which are more common in Britain. They are categorised as the best boilers due to their compatibility and quick installation thereby providing heat for your radiators as well as the hot running water which is on-demand.
They don’t require a water storage cylinder, and that’s why they occupy little space, thereby rendering them perfect for smaller and medium properties.
System boilers are ideal for large households or for those in need of running hot water from more than one tap simultaneously.
Combi boilers are also known as Combination boilers, and they are the most used type of boilers in the UK and provide heat and hot water in the absence of tanks as well as cylinders.
The most typical combi boilers are gas and electric, and you can choose any of them based on your requirements.
They can save space; They can be fitted in a normal kitchen cupboard because they don’t require larger water cylinders as well as tanks. The chances of pipe freezing are minimal because the boiler has only fewer pieces.
When it comes to installation, they are much easier, quicker and cost-effective when compared to the installation of standard boilers.
There is a likelihood of losing water pressure if have a large, busy household comprising of several bathrooms.
When the hot water is turned on, the central heating stops because all the heating takes place in one central unit. There may be a significant decrease in water pressure if you require hot water from multiple taps simultaneously.
The installation of the Combi boiler is quite challenging.
Combi boilers are designed to suit every home but are ideal for homes where a great number of people do not need large volumes of warm water at the same time.
Combi boilers are readily available in different sizes here at Mr Central Heating. Here we have 24 to 74KW, 28-34KW and 35-42KW.
A 24-27KW Combi boiler is ideal for medium and small houses as well as the flat apartments comprising of at least ten medium-size radiators and one bathroom.
A 28-34KW Combi boiler is ideal for medium and large houses which may have 3-4 bedrooms, 15 medium size radiators, one bathroom as well as the ensuite bathroom.
A 35-42KW Combi boiler is well suited for households with more twenty and above medium size radiators and at least two bathrooms.
For households with a higher demand for warm water, a boiler with higher kilowatt is ideal for such households because the flow of hot water will be significant.
