COMBINATION BOILER SYSTEM
combination system is the simplest form of central heating
Combination boiler is two appliances in one - a pressurised central heating boiler
and an instantaneous water heater.
main benefit of a combination boiler is that it heats water directly
from the cold mains giving continuous hot water on demand to all taps at
mains pressure with no need for any tanks. Water is only heated when required and
is therefore usually more efficient and economical than a hot water
storage cylinder which is part of a conventional system however, hot
water will normally only flow from one tap at a time therefore
this system is not ideal for installations with more than one
bathroom/shower room. Heat flow
to radiators is interrupted whilst hot water is being drawn.
April 2002, changes in the Building Regulations effect how your
installer replaces your boiler or makes changes to your heating
controls. For further details click here
time to time, your central heating system may require bleeding or
re-pressurising. For further details click here
All installations are carried out in accordance with relevant
regulations and good practice.
