Should You Choose a Combi-Boiler?

Boilers account for approximately 55% of annual energy bills, so therefore ensuring that you have an efficient boiler installed has the potential to make a big difference.

Replacing an old gas boiler with an A-rated high-efficiency condensing boiler and improving your heating controls will significantly cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions

Traditional boilers tend to take up considerably more space, both in the kitchen and the loft, as well as being more uneconomical to run.

The combi-boiler on the other hand is different from other types of boiler in that the need to store hot water is eliminated, making an additional hot water cylinder within an airing cupboard unnecessary.

The name ‘combi’ refers to the fact that these boilers work not only as an extremely efficient water heater but also as a central heating unit as well.


There are a number of advantages to the combi boiler such as hot water on demand and cold water coming from the water main thus eliminating the need for a cold water tank and a hot water cylinder. They are also highly efficient and can often generate significant savings on gas bills.

The benefits of a combi-boiler installation include:

  • Highly effective thermostat controls offer protection against sudden changes in water temperature whilst you are in the shower.
  • Additional space will be created due to there being no need for a water tank
  • Highly economical
  • Hot water on demand means no waiting around for water to heat up.
