Baxi 400 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 400 412 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Is the Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler from the 400 range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler is right for where you live 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 of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Baxi 400 412 heat only is 12 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Baxi 400 412 boiler?

The Baxi 400 412 is TBC mm high by TBC mm wide by TBC mm deep.

400 412 – non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Baxi 400 412 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Baxi 400 412 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Baxi 400 412 heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

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 400 412 are 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Baxi 400 412 is "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Baxi 400 412 boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Baxi Baxi 400 412 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.

Baxi 400 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 400 412 a regular, combi or system boiler?

You might want to consider the Baxi 400 412 for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is the Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting 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".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Baxi 400 412 heat only is 12 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Baxi 400 412 boiler?

The Baxi 400 412 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Baxi 400 412 – condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi 400 412 - 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 400 412 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

The energy efficiency rating of the Baxi 400 412 is 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

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 400 412 scores "A".

Am I covered if my Baxi 400 412 heat only boiler breaks down?
