What We Think of the Potterton Performa Combi HE
Two models sit snugly within this range and both are Combi boilers, which means they are best for properties which want to save on the space needed for a modern central heating system. The first boiler is rated at 24kW and supplies hot water to the taps (on demand), at a rate of flow which equals 9.8 litres a minute. For the bigger boiler, the output is 30kW and the flow-rate is 30kW.
The Combi system has become very popular because the average sized house does not need to make use of all the trappings that surround a more traditional system, which usually have to have a hot water storage tank, a cold water cistern and an expansion tank. The Combi sits alone, fed by cold water from the mains, and fulfils both functions of providing hot water to the taps and heating the radiators.
Ideal for medium properties and weighing in at just over 40kg.
