Economise on space with a combination heating boiler, a combi boiler system does not need a large area for its installation and this can be a great benefit if you have limited space in your home. There are a few prerequisites for fitting a combi boiler so you need to ensure that you get the full facts and have it confirmed that the boiler is suitable for your home, and your families hot water usage, before you commit to buying one.

Whilst people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones people in small houses should consider a combi boiler system. A combi heating boiler and balanced flue contain all the components you need to install a simple but fully functioning heating system. To complete the heating so that it looks good and that you can control when the heating is on you just need attractive radiators, the required fittings and a quantity of copper piping and a set of heating controls and a programmer. You could be stunned by this and wonder whether we had omitted some parts. What about the systems external water pump, the hot water tank and the expansion tank.

The response to your enquiries would be that with a regular combination heating boiler you do require these component parts. You will have no need for a hot water storage tank, there is no need for an attic based feed and enlargement cylinder, the combi gas boiler also incorporates the other petite elements. So you can see with a combination heating boiler you can save a great deal of space within your household.

Combination gas boilers have been fitted for a while. Whilst they were first fitted in Europe they are now a very popular heating boiler for fitting in the United Kingdom. There are two main differences to be highlighted when compared with orthodox boilers. The first is that the expansion cylinder intended for the attic, which also normally pops up the system, can be dispensed with. A second benefit is getting rid of the requirement for the hot water tank as the gas boiler stocks its own hot water.

Hot water for showers or washing is produced on demand, switching on a tap for hot water will alert the gas boiler to this need. Cold water is quickly heated up by the use of an economical heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is heated by clever use of the existing hot water in the central heating system. This allows for cold mains water to be quickly heated before exiting the hot water valve.

The system gives priority to delivering hot water for the internal taps ahead of that given for the central heating. When the valve is closed again the central heating water is returned to its regular circuit.

Considering the above you can see that you are able to install a new heating boiler in a small flat and not require a significant amount of storage space provided that your appetite for simultaneous use of hot water is small.
