Is a combi boiler best for a 2 bedroom home?
A combi boiler is also known as a combination boiler because of its dual action job of central heating and hot water and could be the ideal boiler for you.
A combi boiler/ condensing boiler is small enough to go in a kitchen cupboard or to be wall-hung, it is very cost-effective and energy-saving and is also very easily fitted.
There is no need for a hot water cylinder to be fitted in the loft either, saving you more space for clothes or toys!
Key tip though ” always make sure your boiler is fitted with a Gas Safe registered engineer””.
If you feel you don’t like the sound of a combi boiler and this is not the type of boiler for you there is a system boiler or a heat-only boiler which could also be an option for your 2 bedroom home, although a combi boiler should be perfect.
Should I get a System boiler for a 2 bedroom home?
You can, but they are not ideal as they are suited better to larger homes with high hot water demand.
We wont bore you with too much information but basically a system boiler produces hot water from a storage tank meaning you can have more hot water on demand than you can with a combi boiler and it directly produces heat for your central heating system.
A System Boiler works the same way as a Conventional Boiler also known as a Regular Boiler.
Heat only boilers
A Heat only Boiler also know as a Regular Gas Boiler which is usually found in a larger property but could be used in your traditional 2 bedroom home provides heat which is used as central heating and stores hot water in a cylinder, very similar to a Regular Boiler System.
Another main point to remember when needing a boiler for your home is the power output also known as boiler sizing and will have a number followed by KW. The number followed by KW could be in the boiler model title.
A combi boiler is perfect for 2-bed homes
But what size should you get?
A typical combi boiler power output for a 2-bedroom property would be 25KW – 28KW.
As long as you only have one bathroom in your home, then this is the ideal output in terms of energy efficiency and coping with hot water demands.
Very simple way to think about the power is: The smaller the property with fewer radiators and bathrooms the less power you need. The bigger the property with multiple bathrooms and a larger amount of radiators the more power you will need.
Any larger than this would be larger energy bills and a waste of energy, any smaller than this would not have enough power to give you enough central heating and hot water for your 2 bedroom home.

The below power ratings area guide for varying property sizes:

- 36KW – 43KW: larger homes with anything above 20 radiators and 3 or more bathrooms.
The main things to think about when choosing a boiler is as follows:
Price is often what we make our final decision on with everything but remember in most cases you get what you pay for.
You wouldn’t go to Mcdonalds expecting a Michelin star meal therefore the cheaper boiler is not always the boiler which should win, take in to consideration the warranty.
