What is a Combi Boiler?


By ProMatcher Staff



Combi Boiler Definition

A combi (or combination) boiler is both a water heater and a boiler heating unit. It provides hot water to a radiant heating system and it also supplies hot water to faucets and appliances.

If space is at a premium, combi boilers are great for saving space as there is no bulky storage tank. The boiler works on demand so water is only heated when there is a need for it. When using large quantities of hot water, it is possible that the heater will not be able to keep up with the demand.

Combi boilers are high-efficiency boilers. As a result, they can be more expensive. However, you will have lower energy bills over the life of the boiler.
