The most popular type of boiler in the UK
Combination boilers – more commonly known as combi boilers, are the most popular type of boiler sold in the UK for central heating and domestic hot water.
Whilst first produced by Vaillant in the early 1960s and introduced to the UK by Worcester in 1971, combi boilers have gained massive popularity over the past 20 years or so, due to the excellent efficiency and heating capabilities they now provide. As they are compact, require no hot water cylinder or cold water tanks, over 70% of UK households now choose these over other boiler types.
Even if you have a larger property, there are still combi boiler options available for you.
It is worth considering the following too:
How much hot water do you use?
If you require hot water from multiple taps at the same time, including showers, then perhaps a regular combi boiler won’t be enough. However, for properties with higher hot water demands, a storage combi boiler will be able to handle the hot water demands from several taps at once.
In the case of the Viessmann Vitodens 111-W, it utilises an integrated stainless steel thermal store with CLS (cylinder loading system). This makes sure that it refills the in-built thermal store within a few seconds without affecting the final flow rate. The Viessmann Vitodens 111-W can handle up to three bathrooms.
However, if you live in a larger house, it may be that a combi boiler isn’t the right option for you and you may want to consider a conventional boiler or a system boiler with an external hot water cylinder instead.
How close will the combi boiler be to the bathroom?
If you are planning to install your new combi boiler in the garage and you have a bathroom on the other side of the house, you could experience a delay in the time it takes for water to heat up and reach your taps and showers. For best results, your combi boiler should either be installed reasonably close to your bathroom, or equidistant to the kitchen taps and bathroom.
