Boilers are an essential part of many households but have you ever wondered what the difference is between system and combi boilers? This blog will help inform you of the key differences and give you things to keep in mind when buying a new boiler.
When it comes to boilers there are two main boiler types, these include combi boilers and system boilers. Both boilers have their own unique features and attributes that set them apart. For example, a combi or combination boiler is a high efficiency boiler that can heat water directly from the mains whenever a tap is turned on. Due to the small amount of water kept within the tank, combi boilers are very cost effective. Furthermore, due to their small size and easy to install nature, combi boilers are very popular. On the other hand, the water in a system boiler is stored within a hot water cylinder to keep up with high demands. Furthermore, due to the large amount of water stored within system boilers, having multiple taps running simultaneously doesn’t decrease water pressure.
When it comes down to the age-old question of which boiler is better, there isn’t really a straight answer. Each boiler has its own list of benefits and disadvantages which make these boilers stand out in their own way. Some of the key benefits and disadvantages of each system include:
Advantages + Disadvantages
|Easier installation than regular boiler||Requires a cylinder for hot water|
|Great for high hot water demand||The Boiler cylinder needs to be well insulated|
|Stronger water pressure|
Advantages + Disadvantages
|Compact size||Slower water rate than a system boiler|
|Great efficiency||Overly complex set-up|
|Small water quantities save you money|
