Your essential guide to combi boiler prices and sizes.
Combi is short for combination boiler, which refers to its ability to supply both central heating and hot water. Unlike System or Regular boilers which rely on a hot water storage cylinder, combi will produce hot water on demand. They are more efficient and they’re also great space-savers as they don’t need a water tank. If you currently have a big unsightly water tank in your basement or cupboard, you’ll be able to get rid of it once you convert your central heating system to combi.
Also the hot water tank no longer limits you as to how much hot water you can have. With a combi you now have an endless on-demand hot water supply and there is no standby energy loss as the hot water is only produced in the amount that is required. Storing water in conventional heating systems means part of the energy evaporates in thin air.
No matter how well the hot water cylinder is insulated, some heat will always escape. With a combination boiler there is no such problem because it heats up the flow of water as and when needed.

As a general rule for modern combi boilers, you can’t have a boiler that’s too big for your house because most recent models will provide heat output depending on demand. An upside of having a bigger boiler is that you get a more steady supply of hot water. It is, however, possible to make a mistake and choose a boiler that’s not sufficient for your home in which case you won’t have adequate heating and hot water. We don’t necessarily suggest you buy a bigger boiler than you need – the key is to choose an optimum size boiler.
