What Size Of Boiler Is Suitable For Your Burtonwood Home

Do you know what size boiler you need for your Burtonwood home? Choosing the right sized combi boiler can be bewildering, so it is always advisable to consult with a Burtonwood Heating Engineer or Gas Safe Burtonwood Plumber first to give you advice, it is still useful to have a basic idea of what you are going to need to set a budget. Our guide will help you plan…

What size boiler for my Burtonwood home?

Combi boilers come in three different size ranges:

  • Small combi boiler: 24 – 27kw
  • Medium combi boiler: 28 – 34kw
  • Large combi boiler: 35 – 42kw

As a rough guide, most flats, apartments and small houses which have up to 10, average sized radiators and a single bathroom will require a 24 – 27kw Combi Boiler.

For a medium to large sized home with up to 3 or 4 bedrooms and up to 15 average sized radiators, a single bathroom and an en-suite, a 28-34kw Combi Boiler would be best.

The biggest 35kw – 42kw combi boilers are for large houses with up to 20 average sized radiators and two or more bathrooms.

For properties with a higher demand for hot water, the higher the power (in kW) of the combi boiler, the better the rate of flow of your hot water is going to have.

You should note that most Burtonwood combi boilers cannot cope well with two or more showers running simultaneously in the same house. Where this is a need, a system boiler with an unvented cylinder or an electric shower would be a better option.

What is a Burtonwood Combi boiler?

A combi boiler/combination boiler is a boiler that provides both heat for hot water and also central heating. Hot water is supplied instantaneously in your Burtonwood home when you turn on a hot tap.

With a combination boiler, there is no tank in the loft space and no other water storage cylinder. The water is fed directly from the mains supply, so the water pressure is usually higher.
