condensing boilers with its built-in heat exchanger to provide hot water to a
home or a building. During the cold season, combi boiler runs when needed to
heat the structure and provide hot water to various hot appliances. Whereas in
hot summer days, combi boiler works whenever there is a need for domestic hot
There are two main reasons behind the combi boilers great
and powerful efficiency i.e. these units have high operating efficiency and low
internal water volume. This means when in summer days you don’t need space
heating you are only paying to heat hot water which is domestically required.
How to increase water pressure on a combi boiler?
