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.
