Baxi 200 228 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 200 228 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Baxi 200 228 is a gas combi boiler.

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 200 228 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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Baxi 200 228 combi boiler has an output rate of 28 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 200 228 Combi boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Baxi 200 228 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Baxi 200 228 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity 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 200 228 boiler

The Baxi 200 228 has the following dimensions - 700 mm high, 295 mm wide, and 279 mm deep.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi 200 228 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Baxi 200 228 combi considered environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

Will choosing a Baxi 200 228 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Baxi 200 228 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Baxi 200 228 has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

If the Baxi 200 228 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Baxi’s 200 228 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.

Baxi 200 228 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 200 228 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Baxi 200 228 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is a Baxi 200 228 combi boiler appropriate 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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Baxi 200 228 combi boiler has an output rate of 28 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Baxi 200 228 combi would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Baxi 200 228, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Baxi 200 228 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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.


How large is the Baxi 200 228?

The dimensions of the Baxi 200 228 are 700 mm tall, 295 mm wide, and 279 mm deep.

Is the Baxi 200 228 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 200 228 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How environmentally friendly is the Baxi 200 228 combi?

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.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Will installing a Baxi 200 228 combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Baxi 200 228 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading 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 200 228 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does a Baxi 200 228 combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Baxi 200 228 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.
