Space, smaller properties that are short on space may benefit from a combi boiler. A combi boiler doesn’t need a hot water cylinder, and so needs less space freeing up airing cupboard and loft space.
Pressure, Combi boilers provide water at mains pressure, meaning you can enjoy a good, hot shower without the need for an additional shower pump or unvented hot water cylinder.

New hot water cylinders are factory insulated to help keep your hot water at the right temperature for longer. They play an important role in supplying you with readily available hot water, so it’s important that they are fully insulated to prevent heat escaping. Below is a brief description of the different types of hot water cylinders available.
-Vented cylinders, the main advantages of installing vented hot water cylinders over an unvented alternative is that they are much less complicated. This makes them easier to install and maintain and this generally requires just a straight swop with the old hot water cylinder, resulting in a much cheaper install. The two biggest disadvantages however, are the fact you need to have a cold water storage tank therefore the system will ultimately take up more space than an unvented hot water cylinder and the hot water pressure is determined by the height of the cold water tank.
-Unvented cylinders, because unvented cylinders provide hot water constantly at mains pressure, there is no requirement for a cold water storage tank or the extra pipework and expense to link it up. And because you’re relying on the pressure from the mains rather than just gravity, you can situate the hot water cylinder in almost any location. The disadvantage is that they require specialist installation, making them a little pricier than traditional vented hot water cylinders.
