Combination Boiler V’s Gravity Fed System
If you are having a loft conversion and you have a gravity fed system then the cold water storage tanks in the loft will need to be removed or re-located (to fit a combination boiler). The immersion heater is usually located on the 1st floor and is often positioned in the same place as the new staircase. If so, then it will also need to be removed or re-located. A negative head pump will need to be installed alongside the immersion heater to pump the hot water up into your new bathroom.
The cost for this work can be offset and put towards a new combination boiler. A combination boiler is a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, combined within one compact unit. Therefore, no separate hot water cylinder is required, offering space saving within the property. This will allow the removal of the water tanks in the loft and the immersion heater in the airing cupboard. An ingenious space-saving idea, and a popular choice with all our loft conversion designs.
Further Benefits of a Combination Boiler
Further benefits of a combination boiler includes hot water being delivered through your taps or shower at mains pressure. So you can enjoy powerful showering without the need for a pump.
Continuous hot water on demand.
