Small and compact
Unlike conventional boilers, combi boilers don’t store hot water, so there is no need for a hot water tank or big cylinder that will take up space in your home. Combi boilers are smaller and just a single unit, meaning they can easily fit into your airing cupboard or kitchen whilst still leaving you some space for other items you want to store.
Installing a combi boiler will also give you more space in your loft area as there won’t be a need for a cold-water storage unit. This is because the cold water accessed by combi boilers comes directly from the main supply. Without the bulky water storage units, combi boilers are much easier to install with less disruption and hassle to you. Also, there will be less risk of your pipes freezing during the winter, which is a welcome relief for households.
If you get a new combi boiler in Fife, you can expect it to perform considerably better than other types of boilers, with their output usually at least 90% efficient. Not only does this make heating your home in the winter much more affordable, but it also lowers your carbon footprint with less energy waste, which is beneficial to the environment and the fight against climate change.
Hot water and heating on demand
One of the most important features in a combi boiler is that it is able to produce hot water on demand. There’s no need to wait for the boiler to heat up a tank of water when a combi can provide you with hot water whenever you desire it. This makes them a great option for busy homes with lots of inhabitants using a lot of hot water and each with their own schedule. Since hot water can be accessed on demand, there isn’t a risk of the hot water running out like there is with a normal boiler, so no one will have to wait for the tank to fill back up before they can get a shower.
Fresh cold water for drinking
The water that’s released from combi boilers is safer for you to drink as it is fed directly from the mains water supply. Conventional boiler systems tend to store cold water in tanks, which means it may not be as fresh or clean.
