What Size Boiler Do You Need For Your Wigan Home?

What size boiler do you need for your Wigan home? Choosing the right size of combi boiler can be a bewildering task, and although it is always best to consult with a Heating Engineer or a Gas Safe registered plumber first to get advice, it is useful to have a basic idea of what you need when you set your budget. Our guide should help you to plan.

What size boiler do you need for your Wigan home?

Combi boilers come in three size ranges from 24kW to 42kW.

As a ballpark guide, most Wigan flats, apartments and small homes (with up to 10, average sized radiators and one bathroom) require a small 24 – 27kw Combi Boiler.

For a medium or large sized house – with 3 or 4 bedrooms and up to 15 radiators, and two bathrooms (or one bathroom and en-suite), a 28-34kw Combi Boiler is usually sufficient.

The biggest boilers – 35kw – 42kw – are for the largest houses with as many as 20 radiators and more than two bathrooms.

For properties with a high demand for hot water, a more powerful boiler (higher kW number) will give a better rate of flow of hot water.

You should be aware that combi boilers do cope well with more than one shower running simultaneously. If you need this, then a system boiler with an unvented cylinder or, alternatively, an electric shower should be considered.

What is a Wigan Combi boiler?

A combi (combination) boiler- provides heat for your central heating and also a supply of hot water. The hot water is supplied instantaneously on demand whenever you turn on one of your hot taps.

When you have a combi boiler, you do not need a tank in the loft, nor do you need a water storage cylinder in an airing cupboard. The water comes directly from the mains and is heated as it flows through the boiler, so your hot water pressure is usually better.
