Baxi 200 218 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi 200 218 may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler from the 200 range a suitable choice 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 200 218 heat only boiler has an output of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Baxi 200 218?

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

Is the Baxi 200 218 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 200 218 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing the Baxi 200 218 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Baxi 200 218 are 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Baxi 200 218 is rated "A".

If the Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Baxi offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years on the Baxi 200 218.

Baxi 200 218 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 200 218 is certainly one to consider.

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. 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

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?

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 200 218 heat only's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi 200 218 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Baxi 200 218 boiler?

The Baxi 200 218's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Is the Baxi 200 218 condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 200 218 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 200 218 heat only a good choice for 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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Baxi 200 218 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Baxi 200 218 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.
