Why Should I Consider Replacing My Homes Boiler

What Size Of Boiler Is Suitable For Your Warrington Home?

Do you know what size of boiler you need for your Warrington home? Choosing the right sized combi boiler can be bewildering, and although it is always advisable to consult with a Heating Engineer or Gas Safe 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 of boiler for my Warrington house?

Combi boilers come in three size ranges:

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

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

For a medium to large sized house with up 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 boiler, the better the rate of flow of your hot water is going to be.

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

What is a Warrington Combi boiler?

A combi – or combination – boiler- is a boiler that provides both heat for central heating and also hot water. Hot water is supplied instantaneously when you turn on a hot tap.

With a combi boiler, there is no tank in the loft and no water storage cylinder. The water is fed directly from the mains, so the water pressure is usually greater.
