If you have a combi-boiler you already understand the convenience and energy efficiency it gives. These appliances are wondrous examples of modern engineering and are more than capable of heating your home and providing you with hot water for many years. But the question is, could you cope in the event that your combi-boiler broke down?

Being left without simple things like hot water and heating can be more stressful than you think and lead to an incredibly trying time for you and your family. Combi-boilers can generally be fixed relatively quickly but that requires a qualified gas engineer in most cases and getting one out to your home in a hurry can be more difficult than you think. In the worst-case scenario, you could be left living in an uncomfortable property in the middle of winter and may even need to move out until the problem can be resolved.
