Combi boilers - get a new one; gas or electric

Combi boilers (combination boilers), are the most popular type of boiler in the UK. Providing heat and hot water on demand, without the need for a water tank or cylinder, they take up little space and don’t require a pump.

Suitable for most homes, combination boilers are especially useful in residences where lots of people require hot water at the same time.

This boiler type has its name from being an efficient water heater combined with a central heating boiler. All in one compact size.  So you don’t have to worry about an additional hot water cylinder taking up space in your home.

These boilers can be fuelled by either gas or electricity.

 

How does a combination boiler work?

 

Taking water directly from the mains and heating it, combi boilers produce a continuous supply of water. By not storing hot water in a separate tank, combi boilers are more energy efficient than their counterparts.
