Baxi 200 212 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 200 212 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 200 212 might be a suitable option for you.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Baxi 200 212 heat only's output at 12 kW, which types of property would this Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Baxi 200 212

The Baxi 200 212 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Is this Baxi boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 200 212 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Baxi 200 212 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Baxi 200 212 heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Baxi 200 212 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Baxi 200 212 has a rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Baxi 200 212 boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 3 years is included with the Baxi Baxi 200 212 boiler.

Baxi 200 212 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 200 212 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Baxi 200 212 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Is a Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler has an output of 12 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Baxi 200 212 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Baxi 200 212 boiler?

The Baxi 200 212 occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Baxi 200 212 non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi 200 212 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Does the Baxi 200 212 heat only protect the environment?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Baxi 200 212 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Baxi 200 212 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Baxi 200 212 is "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Baxi 200 212 breaks down?

On the Baxi 200 212, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.
