Can you use a combi boiler as a system boiler?

'System' boilers: A system boiler heats water directly from the mains (like a combi boiler - see below). Using a system boiler requires less space since many of the components found in a conventional (regular) central heating set up are built into a system boiler and there is no need for a feed or expansion tank.

Correspondingly, is a system boiler better than a combi?

System boilers store hot water in a cylinder, which needs a lot of energy and will sometimes leave you waiting for it to refill before you can get access to hot water. combi boilers, on the other hand, take their water supply directly from the mains, so you'll have hot water on demand.

can you use a combi boiler with a Megaflow? Megaflo & Combi Boiler Comparison Combi boilers heat hot water on demand, and they have no water storage facility. So, even huge combi boilers like the 42CDI from Worcester, will struggle to keep up with hot water demand in large properties. And, that's where a cylinder combined with a “system” boiler comes in.

Keeping this in view, is a system boiler cheaper than a combi?

The system boiler is cheaper than a combi boiler but still more expensive than simply repairing your old system. System boilers reviews prove that they're cheaper and better. Typically the costs for sealed combustion boilers are higher than for traditional atmospherically vented boilers.

Can you have a hot water tank with a combi boiler?

A combi will only heat water as and when it's needed, making it an efficient and practical solution. If you want additional hot water storage, but you don't want a conventional boiler system with a hot water tank, there are two other types of boiler that may be right for you: a storage combi boiler or a system boiler.
