What Is a Combi Boiler?

A combi boiler (combination boiler) is a compact type of boiler that supplies heating and hot water for your taps from one unit. As opposed to having a separate external water cylinder or tank where water is heated.

How Does a Combi Boiler Work?

In the same way as a standard boiler, a combi boiler burns gas and produces heat which is used to warm the water running through the boiler.

The difference is that a combi boiler has a second heat exchanger that transfers heat when a hot tap is turned on.

By heating water only as you need it, a combi boiler can provide hot water on demand whilst saving you on your energy bills.

What Are the Benefits of a Combi Boiler?

Combi boilers have a number of benefits to homeowners including:

  • Lower energy bills as a result of higher efficiency.
  • Compact size giving you more space for living.
  • Lower carbon footprint.
  • Provides hot water on demand.
  • If you have good mains pressure, you will receive a good level of pressure from your shower.
  • Can be installed anywhere in the home.
  • Cheaper than a conventional boiler and cylinder.
