Dec 20, 2016 What Is A Combi Boiler?
A combi boiler is rapidly becoming the most wanted type of boiler in the whole of the UK. The combination boiler is a lot smaller than other boilers and due to its size it can be fitted very easily no matter how small your home may be. When it comes to domestic boilers being installed in Britain, every year, well over half are combi boilers.
Benefits Of A Combi Boiler
A combination boiler is basically a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, this is where the name ‘combi’ originates from. There is no need for an additional hot water cylinder. This offers a lot of extra space. Other benefits of a combi boiler includes hot water being delivered through your taps and showers at the mains pressure, this allows powerful showering minus the pump. Another benefit of a combi boiler is that you generally save money on installation time and costs as there is no tank needed to be installed.
Combi Boiler Installation
The cost of a combi boiler installation depends on a number of factors. The cost of a boiler installation is in most cases more expensive than the boiler its self. It is a good idea to already understand what to expect before calling up for a combination boiler installation from a qualified gas safe engineer.
If you are replacing an existing gas condensing combination boiler in the same position as the last one then you should be paying in the region of £500 – £650, however, if your central heating system is an older one it may require a power flush to remove any chemical build ups.
Now if you are replacing a gas non-condensing boiler with a condensing one, in the same position you should expect to pay in the region of £600 – £800. Moving pipes will be needed adding to the price of this.
The truth is combi boiler installation varies in price due to a number of factors as mentioned above. One price doesn’t fit all. At Boilers Worcester we take pride in our work so if you require a combi boiler repair or combi boiler installation you can depend on our gas safe registered engineers.
