Combi boilers can just be the best thing to happen for your house. Some experts believe that a combi boiler is just what the doctor ordered in an era of high energy prices. This opens the door for a combi boiler installation by reputable firms.
The justification for replacing the existing boiler with a combi lies in the capabilities of the current machine. Many conventional boilers are of the “heat-only” type, which has two cold-water tanks and a hot-water tank. These can take up a good deal of space wherever they are set up, especially if all three tanks have large volumes.
Combi boilers work around the problem by linking up with the house’s water main. A unit will have a number of output pipes for the regular plumbing grid and the central heating grid.
Consult your boiler installation service about whether to place the combi where the existing unit is, as this will help govern the connection layouts. In a number of cases, such a move may be light on the pocket. Observers claim you may spend no more than £600 for a replacement in the same location; but expect up to three times that amount if you have to place the combi in a new location. The savings you generate from utility bills, however, can more than offset the initial costs.
