Take up less space in your home, compact size
Combi boilers are considerably smaller than a conventional boiler due to not having to store hot water like a standard boiler does. This removes the need for a big hot water cylinder in your airing cupboard and instead replaces it with a small boiler unit that can be tucked away in your kitchen or airing cupboard, allowing you to maximise the space in your home.
Also, fitting a combi boiler will free up space in your roof or loft area as there is no need for a cold-water storage unit. Combi boilers get their supply of cold water directly from the mains. The lack of water storage units gives combi boilers the advantage when it comes to installation as well. No water storage unit means less work, disruption, and hassle when your boiler is being fitted, and it reduces the risk of pipes freezing during the winter.
Combi boilers offer impressive levels of efficiency, in fact, combi boilers are reported to be up to 90% efficient. This makes heating your home in the winter more affordable and reduces your carbon footprint so your household will become more environmentally friendly.
Quick access to hot water and central heating
As previously mentioned, with combi boilers in Scotland there is no need to wait for your water to be heated because they heat water based on demand. Therefore, combi boilers are very convenient in homes with multiple people and a higher usage of hot water. Those waiting in the queue for the bathroom behind you won’t have to wait ages for a hot water tank to fill back up. Since water can be accessed on demand, there is no risk of hot water running out like there is with a traditional boiler.
Safer cold water for drinking
The cold water that is released from a combi boiler is safer for you to drink as it is fed directly from the mains. This is not always the case with conventional boiler systems, as they tend to store cold water in tanks.
