The combi boiler is essentially a central heating boiler and a water heater all in one. The thermostat that is located in your home sends signals to the unit to let it know when the temperature has dropped below a certain temperature. The boiler then fires up and puts heat into the heating system. When the temperature that you have set our thermostat at has been reached the boiler will slow down the heat distribution throughout the system and will moderate the heat around the level you have chosen. This means that your system works effectively and efficiently to keep your home at the optimum temperature that you like.
