Combi boilers, which are devices created by using steel, sheet metal, copper, aluminium and plastic materials, are necessary for you to increase the comfort in your home. These devices are frequently preferred in terms of easy portability and small footprint, and combi boilers are also responsible for heating the place where they are located in addition to water heating in homes or business environments.
It can be quite difficult to choose among the combi boilers that each household can adjust according to their needs and consume fuel. Although it is an undeniable fact that combi boilers are necessary for hot water and heating needs, the combi that you will install in your home must be a powerful and high-quality combi.

Intergas, whose main purpose is to increase energy efficiency and reliability, while reducing the energy bills of customers, is a Dutch boiler manufacturing company with a history of approximately fifty years. They say that despite having a history of fifty years and being on the market for many years, they still maintain their success with the two-in-one heat exchanger of Intergas combi boilers. The company, which has been using this design, which they describe as the heart of its boilers, in every combi boiler design since 1966, also argues that this innovative initiative has many benefits for its customers. Since the heat exchanger, which they describe as a two-in-one, is considered as a single heat exchanger, the boilers in which this heat exchanger is used use less fuel than other boilers and thus become more efficient for the customers. Intergas combi company also claims that their combi boilers have lower energy bills than all other combi boilers in the UK.
