What are combi boilers?

A combi boiler provides central heating and hot water. It heats water instantaneously when a hot tap or shower is turned on.

With a combi boiler will I still need a separate hot water cylinder?

No. Because a combi boiler provides heat for central heating and heats water for your taps on demand, there is no need for tanks in the loft or a hot water storage cylinder, saving you space.

Do combi boilers provide good water pressure?

Because water is fed from your mains pipe water pressure is generally good. However, depending on heat output, the flow can be limited if other taps are running at the same time. If you have more than one bathroom a larger more powerful combi boiler or system boiler might be a better option.

Do all types of shower work with a combi boiler?

Most standard shower fittings are compatible with a combi boiler, however if you have a modern multi-jet shower the water demand may exceed that provided. Pump assisted power showers can only be installed with tank fed systems. This is something we’ll assess when preparing a detailed written quote.

Are combi boilers economical to run?
