Baxi 200 218 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 200 218 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Baxi 200 218 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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.

Is a Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Baxi 200 218 dimensions

The Baxi 200 218 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi 200 218.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler good for the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing the Baxi 200 218 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Baxi 200 218 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Baxi 200 218.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Baxi 200 218 boiler?

Baxi’s 200 218 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.

Baxi 200 218 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi 200 218 - standard, combi or system?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Baxi 200 218 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Baxi 200 218 heat only outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Baxi 200 218 boiler?

The size of the Baxi 200 218 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi 200 218 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Baxi 200 218 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Baxi 200 218 scores "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Baxi 200 218 boiler?

The Baxi 200 218 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.
