Combi Boilers: A Combination of Awesome
Try and think of great space-saving and money saving ideas. Stackable washers and dryers, shampoo and conditioner in one bottle, hand sanitizer and moisturizer in one bottle, having a computer and cell phone in a smart phone just name a few of the great ideas. Another great idea or invention that saves space while saving money is the Combi Boiler.
The primary use for combi boilers is to transfer thermal energy from a heat source to water, depending on the application’s demand for hot water. A combi boiler is a central heating boiler as well as a high-efficiency water heater all in one unit. This saves space because no separate, bulky hot water cylinder is needed and adds value to the property. It saves money on installation because there is less pipe work and shorter installation time. Another benefit of combi boilers are the savings in hot water costs. The hot water comes out of the shower head or faucets with significant pressure, so there is no need for a pump.
Combi boilers do not store hot water like conventional boiler models do. Instead, combi boilers heat water on demand in a short amount of time. Combi boilers can be found in commercial, industrial and residential units. Commercial and industrial units are much larger than residential units. They are often found in schools, offices, manufacturing plants, factories and any other building that requires heating or where hot water is necessary.
Combi boilers employ a second heating element. Industrial boiler units use electricity or fuel (wood, coal or natural gas) in order to operate. Combi boilers are typically rectangular in shape and kept in an enclosure made of cast iron, copper or steel. It is best to keep boilers in a fireproof, well-ventilated and stable environment in the building they hare heating. Mobile combi boiler units are also made for temporary use in emergency or military situations.
