Is this Boiler Suitable for My Home:
The airing cupboard and the loft get mentioned because a system boiler requires a hot water cylinder to live in the airing cupboard and the cold water tank to live in the attic.
The combi boiler is a one-unit boiler that can live in a wall-mounted kitchen cupboard. Combi boilers can struggle if you require water to more than one tap at once; the reason for this is the water comes from the mains.
