Baxi 200 224 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 200 224 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi 200 224 may be an option you should consider.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Should I choose a Baxi 200 224 combi boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Baxi 200 224 combi has an output of 24 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers, you need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate. The flow rate (shown in litres per minute) measures how much water your boiler can draw from the mains which it then instantly heats and distributes to your taps and radiators.

However, a high flow rate is of little to no value if your local water pressure is low. If your local mains water pressure is 10l/m and your flow rate is 12l/m, your boiler will only be able to process 10l/m.

If you live in an area with high water pressure but your household has multiple bathrooms and/or radiators and many members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening baths or showers), it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a combi with a high enough flow rate.

As an indication, a power shower needs about 10 litres of water per minute, whereas the flow rate of this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler is 10 L/ml/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What is the size of the Baxi 200 224?

The Baxi 200 224 is 700 mm [H] by 395 mm [W] by 279 mm [D] in size.

Baxi 200 224 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Baxi 200 224 as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Baxi 200 224 combi considered environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Baxi 200 224 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Baxi 200 224 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Baxi 200 224.

What warranty does the Baxi 200 224 combi boiler come with?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler covers you for 3 years.

Baxi 200 224 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Baxi 200 224 - regular, system or combi?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi 200 224 may be an option you should consider.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Is the Baxi 200 224 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Baxi 200 224 combi is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Dimensions of the Baxi 200 224 boiler

The Baxi 200 224 is 700 mm in height, 395 mm in width and 279 mm in depth.

Is the Baxi 200 224 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Baxi 200 224 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Does the Baxi 200 224 combi protect the environment?

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 accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Baxi 200 224 combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 200 224 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Baxi 200 224 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Baxi 200 224 come with?

The Baxi 200 224 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.
