Combination boilers, frequently referred to as combi boilers, are now one of the most popular types of new boiler installations in the UK. Their popularity comes from their compact size and the fact that they are highly efficient. They are called combi as they not only work as a water heater, but also a central heating unit.
With a combi boiler, the need to store hot water is completely removed as the boiler heats water on demand. This therefore eliminates the need for a hot water cylinder, giving you more space in your airing cupboard. It is essential to have an adequate supply of mains cold water with a combi boiler to ensure that the flow rate is good.
The best showers for combi boilers are mixer showers. To ensure the best performance from your shower, it’s advisable to buy a shower that works with the characteristics of a combination boiler. Our popular Ambassador Range has a category of mixer showers that are specifically designed to work best with combi boilers.
The Ambassador combi showers are available either as exposed or concealed, depending on your needs. Exposed showers are quicker to install, but take up more space in the showering area. Concealed showers require a more complex installation, but give a minimalist finish once installed. All Ambassador mixer showers come in a stylish chrome finish, which should suit most bathroom designs.
Universal Mixer Showers for Combi Boilers
There are also universal mixer showers that are designed to work with any hot water system. These are an ideal choice if you are unsure of your water system, as no matter what system you have, the shower will work. Our new GT mixer shower range will work with any domestic water system – so if you have a combi boiler why don’t you take a look at this shiny new range?
