Do I need to hire a local 'hot water cylinder' and combi boiler specialist?

If you have a hot water cylinder or combination boiler, also known as a “combi boiler”, and it starts to malfunction ie you have no hot water, it’s time to call a local heating engineer.

Not sure whether you have a water cylinder, or a combi boiler, or neither of the two? Combination boilers are very common in smaller houses or flats, due to how compact they are. They don’t require an external water tank, so if there’s no hot water tank attached to your boiler and it doesn’t take up much space in your home, chances are it’s a combi boiler. If it fits this description but has very padded insulation and a hot water coil connected to an external source, it sounds like a hot water cylinder.

If you’re experiencing hot water cylinder or combi boiler problems, HaMuch will help you to find the right person for the job. Then your boiler can get back to its roasty, toasty self in no time.
