Electric Combi Boiler in London
A combi boiler (also known as an electric combination boiler) has become a popular choice in British homes for its space-saving benefits. An electric combi boiler combines a central heating boiler and a high-efficiency water heater in one. Unlike conventional heaters, a separate hot water cylinder isn’t required; saving an ample amount of space within your home.
Combination Boilers are great as they remove the need for all stored water within the property, meaning fewer things go wrong, and free space in your airing cupboard. Combi boilers also give you instant hot water straight from the mains water supply, so you are never waiting for the hot water to heat up.
As well as a space-saving asset, electric combi boilers are cheaper to install than conventional boilers because they require less pipework. This is because the water tank isn’t needed in the roof space, resulting in a shorter installation time. It’s also a lot easier to find parts and engineers trained to service and repair them, should you experience any problems.
Another benefit is that you can trust that the water supply from your electric combi boiler is safe to drink. This is because it is sourced directly from the mains, as opposed to older systems where your cold water will have been stored in a tank before being piped through the house.
While the combi boiler has plenty of advantages, it is important to be aware of some of the drawbacks.
Combination boilers are not suitable for every situation due to several factors, including the mains water pressure, flow rate and the number of outlets that you may have in the property. You should have a survey to outline these factors before going ahead in this direction.
Some key examples of this include:
- If it breaks down you will be left with no hot water or heating (unless you have an electric shower) because there is no water tank.
- It’s not possible to have a power shower with a combi boiler since the water pressure level is set at the water mains.
