What makes a good combi boiler?

A good combi boiler is one that meets the specific needs of your household and property.

Choose the wrong size combi boiler and you will end up spending too much on your heating and hot water. Or you may not be delivered with the levels of hot water you need.

We have considered the following factors when looking at the best combi boiler: price, warranty, design, material quality, flow rate, customer feedback, customer service, awards and accolades.

One of the main factors when considering a combi boiler is efficiency. However, we look at efficiency over time, and this means that aluminium just doesn’t always cut it. Stainless steel heat exchangers are much more robust and won’t corrode like aluminium.

How much does a combi boiler cost?

For a full breakdown of the costs of new combi boilers, please read our guide >

A new combi boiler will cost between £750 to £3,500.

This is a wide range and is based on the boiler only. The average boiler costs approximately £1,300. Including installation, a boiler will cost around £2,700.

Many things can affect this cost. For example, if you want to move the boiler. Or if you need tanks removed from your loft or airing cupboard. Other costs include any new radiators, thermostatic radiator valves and required filters.

Boilerhut quotes include everything needed to install the boiler to the manufacturer’s specifications. So there are no surprises.

How much money will you save with a new combi boiler?

According to the Energy Saving Trust, you can save up to £590 a year on your heating bills. But you could save more depending on your home and which combi boiler you choose.

A bungalow could save up to £345 a year, mid-terraces, £320 and detached houses the full £590.

Is a combi boiler right for your property?

Combi boilers are suitable for most, but not all, properties.

Combi boilers are excellent for properties with limited amounts of space. This is because they don’t need external tanks.

However, combi boilers aren’t just for smaller properties. Combi boilers are now available for properties from a 1-bedroom flat to a 4-bedroom house.

The main consideration for a combi boiler is whether you will need simultaneous hot water taps or showers running. Combi boilers rely on incoming fresh water pressure and flow rate to feed showers and hot taps.

This means that the cold water pressure limits the amount of hot water that can be produced. the power of a boiler will also limit the hot water. This is because the boiler can only heat a certain amount of water every minute.

If you have high hot-water requirements, then you could consider a storage combi boiler. These have hot water tanks built-in and are a good step before looking at full system boilers. These require hot water tanks.
