The name says it all. Combination boilers actually combine the tasks of heating water for cooking and bathing and heating the home. The boilers do not require a big water storage tank; therefore, they take up much less space. They can fit into a fairly small cupboard rather than taking up an entire closet like the larger versions of boilers. Combination boilers do not need storage tanks for a water supply because they connect directly to the water main line giving users a constant supply of water that is heated quickly and efficiently by the boiler. The brilliant design of the combi boiler features two valves, including one that sends hot water to the tap and one that provides heat for the central heating system.
Energy savings costs are so significant with combi boilers Scottish Borders that it just makes good sense to seriously consider purchasing one when the boiler needs to be replaced. The price of a combi boiler will depend on a number of factors including the size of the boiler, the range output, the brand and whether it is electric, gas or oil. Costs for a combi boiler will include the price of the new boiler, the cost of installation, the prices of fittings and other accessories and the cost of removing the old tanks or systems. Some individuals, families and businesses are replacing existing boilers even before they are worn out with combination boilers in order to realize the long-term savings on energy and maintenance costs.
Whatever your boiler project is, you're bound to find the right specialists for it in our huge network of screened engineers.

The small, compact combination boilers Scottish Borders are easy to install, but absolutely require the services of a Gas Safe registered engineer. It would be unwise and unsafe to try to install a combi boiler yourself or have a friend who is not registered do it for you. An annual maintenance check by a Gas Safe registered engineer is advisable as this will help to ensure that combi boilers are operating safely and at peak efficiency. Repairs are typically not too expensive when boilers are properly checked and maintained. It is also important to contact a Gas Safe professional if boilers begin to make noises as this could be a sign of pipes and fittings that need lubricating, debris trapped in the line or a leaks.
As the nation strives to go green, Scottish Borders combi boilers have been shown to be easier on the environment, because they recover the heat from the fuel gases and recycle it instead of expending it into the air outside. This has been shown to reduce annual consumption of gas used to heat water by up to 37% which is quite significant in terms of savings on energy costs, use of gas and negative impact on the environment. In 2011, the national standard for energy performance for heating appliances in the UK was set at 88% according to SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of a Domestic Boiler in the UK), and the use of combi boilers Scottish Borders is the best way to meet the nation’s standard for energy efficiency.
When shopping around for new or replacement combi boilers, most Scottish Borders home owners want to know which brands they should be looking out for, and whether there are any that are better than the rest. While most combi boilers are of a high quality these days, there are a few brands that stand out from the rest, as they are known to provide excellent heat and tend to outlast many other brands. Some popular, durable and good value for money brands includes Baxi, Ideal Boilers, Worcester Bosch, Potterton, Vaillant, Heatline and Glowworm. Before making a final choice though, it’s recommended that you obtain advice from a professional Scottish Borders engineer.
After deciding to have a combi installed, it can be tempting to try and shop around to obtain the lowest price possible. However, when doing this, you may find that your unit doesn’t come with a warranty or it may even end up being by a engineer who is not experienced, insured and qualified. If this occurs, you will be left in the lurch if your new boiler decides to malfunction or stop working completely. Instead, you should be prepared to spend a little more and obtain peace of mind in knowing that your unit has been provided with a full warranty and has been installed correctly. Thankfully the engineers on our network are all fully screened prior to acceptance.
When it comes to combi boilers, there are some questions surrounding the differences between installing a brand-new boiler system and replacing an existing one. Installing a new boiler system is far more extensive as it usually requires the addition of water lines, radiators, and other fixtures, but a combi boiler is the best option in this case. Combining all the hot water used for bathing, cooking, cleaning, and comfort into one system will save money over time. Conversely, when replacing an existing boiler with a combi boiler, two things will ultimately determine the difficulty and overall cost.
When replacing an old, outdated combi boiler with a newer, more efficient version, it’s usually a simple undertaking. In many cases, the radiators and water lines can be used for decades, which means only the boiler itself must be replaced. This reduces labour and thereby cost substantially.
On the other hand, if you are replacing a standalone boiler system with a combi boiler, the labour required is typically far more involved. In this case, many components of your water heating system may need to be changed, and the system will need to be connected to supply hot water for all the household purposes.
Of course, the best way to find out what it will take to replace or install a combi boiler system is to contact several companies for more information. When you fill out the short form found here, you’ll be contacted by as many as four local contractors who can supply you with quotes.

Quite simply, combi boilers are units that provide both heat and hot water, meaning there is no need to have a separate hot water tank.
Combi boilers come in both gas and electric models. There are also several different sizes available as well.
Replacing your current boiler with a combi boiler system can be an energy efficient alternative for small apartments or lofts. It is not a good alternative for larger homes, or homes that have multiple bathrooms.
There is heat loss between a standard boiler and hot water cylinder, which can lead to an overall loss of efficiency. It will depend on the amount of hot water you need/use on any given day.
Yes, as you could actually save enough money on your Scottish Borders energy bill over time to offset the cost of one. Combi boilers also last longer and require fewer repairs.
In most cases, the various brands are on a relative par with each other when it comes to quality. However, there may be different size options available between the various brands.

They should be replaced every 15 years or when the cost of maintenance and repair becomes substantial enough to justify a new system. Some systems may last longer, and others may not last as long. Be sure to check with your contractor about available warranties.
