Top Five Benefits of Combi Showers

It’s hard to imagine a daily routine that doesn’t feature a hot shower. Most houses these days have modern hot water systems allowing an instant supply of hot water. In particular, combination boilers used in conjunction with mixer showers have become increasingly popular in the UK because of the wide range of benefits they offer. These types of mixer showers are commonly referred to as combi showers. Here are our top five benefits of combi showers.

1.) Combi Boilers are Efficient
Modern combi boilers only heat water when required, and so can be considered more energy efficient than some hot water systems. Because of this, combi boilers provide an instant and constant supply of hot water which results in an enjoyable showering experience when using a combi shower. Plus, combi boilers don’t require special tanks for storing hot water which saves space in the home.

2.) Easy to Install and Maintain
Generally, combi showers are easy to install and maintain. They don’t require pumps to increase water pressure and achieve an excellent and reliable shower performance.

3.) Great Range of Features
Most modern combi showers features thermostatic temperature controls. These eliminate sudden temperature fluctuations when water is used elsewhere in the house and prevent scalding – particularly handy if there are young children or elderly relatives using the shower.

4.) Stylish Designs
Combi showers are available in a range of appealing designs. It’s possible to choose from exposed and concealed models which offer two completely different styles of design. Exposed combi showers features the valve and pipework on top of the tiles or wall, whilst concealed combi showers provide a neat and elegant finish with the value located behind the wall. Combi showers commonly are finished in stylish chrome, which should complement any bathroom.

5.) Prices to Suit All Budgets
There should be a combi shower to suit all budgets. For example, our Ambassador combi shower is available at £120.00, down from £152.00, and comes in both exposed and concealed designs. Plus, all of our showers are conveniently available to buy on our website, and all come with free next working day delivery.

What are the Best Showers for Combi Boilers?

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.
