Baxi 200 224 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Baxi 200 224 is a gas combi boiler.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Would the Baxi 200 224 combi be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Baxi 200 224 combi outputs at a maximum of 24 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.

Homeowners considering fitting a combi boiler to their home need to consider flow rates as well as output rates.

The flow rate is a measurement of the volume of water a combi can instantly heat and send to the taps and radiators around your home. The higher the likely demand for hot water in your home, the higher your combi's flow rate should be. This Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

Unlike heat only or system boilers, combi boilers don't store hot water in a tank for later use - instead, they draw it directly from the mains. This means that the volume of water your boiler can actually process is constrained by the flow rate of water in the mains pipe.

So, if you choose a combi boiler with a 15l/m flow rate but the flow rate in your mains pipe is 12l/m, the combi boiler's working flow rate is also 12l/m.

Combi boilers are also not always the correct choice for homes with multiple bathrooms, a high number of radiators, or where more than one family member will want to use hot water at the same time.

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.


Where will the Baxi 200 224 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Baxi 200 224 are 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 279 mm [D].

Is the Baxi 200 224 condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi 200 224 - 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 200 224 combi a good choice for the environment?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Baxi 200 224 combi boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The Baxi 200 224 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Baxi 200 224, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How long is the warranty period on the Baxi 200 224 combi boiler?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years on the Baxi 200 224 boiler to new customers.

Baxi 200 224 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Baxi 200 224 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

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

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?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Baxi 200 224 combi boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Baxi 200 224 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

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 are the dimensions of the Baxi 200 224 boiler?

The Baxi 200 224 is 700 mm tall, 395 mm wide, and 279 mm deep in size.

Baxi 200 224 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 200 224 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Baxi 200 224 combi environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

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.

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

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use, right through to final disposal.

The Baxi 200 224 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty period on a Baxi 200 224 combi boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 3 years is included when you purchase the Baxi 200 224 boiler through PlumbProud.
