    Hi
    At present we have a terraced 3 bed 1 bathroom( thermostatic shower) house. We are thinking of having a loft conversion ( 1 bedroom and shower room. 2 rads) Would our existing Combi (32kw. 13.1 litres per min flow rate) be able to cover this extra load. Our showering at present is spread over the day.
    Thanks

    Yes will take it very easy as in the extra rads . and providing you carry on taking showers at different times that will also be ok as all but the biggest combi`s wont supply two showers at same time.

    do your self a favour and keep combi for radiator heating,get an unvented cylinder use combi flow and return to heat unvented cylinder via zone valves.just keep 1 hot tap on combi dhw outlet.
    mains water pressures in london does vary and is not guranteed,get a new plastic water main to house if your supply is poor.

    If you shower at different times then its no problem.

    I often suggest an electric shower in a loft conversion if the mains water flow is up to it. If not then use the combi on a one shower at a time.

    Are you paying??!! And why a combi for such an installation? Why not a normal system boiler?
