A Heating Boiler: The Condense Combi-Boiler

The condense combi-boiler system is a heating boiler that consists of the boiler and the heating system. It heats both the water and the home at the same time, giving you instant water when you need it. It has been proved that the combi-boiler is highly efficient as it re uses energy that it has burned for other functions.

“Above 90% efficiency”

The energy efficiency is worked out by giving it a SEDBUK BAND rating and since October 2010 only SEDBUK Band A ratings (above 90% energy efficient) can now be installed in to homes.

“Previously A Bad Name”

Combi-boilers had previously a bad name as they were very unreliable and difficult to repair but over the last 10 years or so, manufacturers such as Worcester-Bosch Glow worm and Vaillant have been working on both making the models more reliable and ensuring their after care service is second to none.

“Easier To Fit”

All over Europe the combi-boiler has been a popular choice for home owners. However, the UK has been slow to cotton on to the advantages that a condense combi-boiler can give. For instance logistically they are easier to fit by heating engineers and are now compact enough to fit in smaller spaces such as lofts, the airing cupboard or even a kitchen cupboard. We have even seen them being fitted in a detached garage!

“No More Hot Water Cylinder or Water Tanks In The Loft”

More and more people are opting for the Combi-boiler, not only because of its efficiency but also because it can be housed in locations in the home that are out of the way, which is in complete contrast to its predecessor the conventional boiler which needed a Geen warm water cylinder, water tanks in the loft and the boiler itself. The combi-boiler ensures the cylinder and tanks are redundant and only the appliance itself is needed to heat both your home and the water (instantly) to your home. There is no need to wait for water to heat up as the combi-boiler provides semi-instant (upto 5 seconds) hot water to the tap straight from the boiler.

“Does Your Property Match The Criteria”

So if you are in need of a new heating boiler, and your property matches the criteria (2/3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom) then we recommend you give a gas heating Combi-boiler a good going over starting with a Worcester-Bosch Greenstar 24i Junior.
