Will a combi boiler suit me?

Martyn Bridges reveals how to determine whether these appliances will complement your home, lifestyle and hot water usage
Worcester’s Greenstar Highflow CDi series combi blends well with the kitchen cabinetry

A combination or ‘combi’ unit is a high-efficiency water heater and central heating boiler in a single compact appliance. The major difference between this and other types of boiler is that it provides domestic hot water (DHW) directly from the mains when you turn on a tap or shower. As you’d expect, it also offers a constant, controllable temperature for central heating when you need it.

The benefits

With DHW supplied instantly and on demand, one noticeable advantage of a combi boiler is the fact that it frees up the space normally needed to accommodate a cylinder and/or cold water storage tank in the attic. As a result, this kind of appliance is ideal if you want to make the most of an area previously used as an airing cupboard or if you’re tackling a loft conversion where you want to maximise every inch of available space.
