Combi boilers (or combination boilers) are a popular choice thanks to their easy installation and energy efficiency. If you are about to take on a renovation or install a new heating system, then a combi boiler could be for you.

A combi boiler delivers instantaneous heat for either hot water use or central heating. This is different from a typical instantaneous heater in that it can deliver the heat to both the hot water taps and also a central heating circuit.
