Baxi 400 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 400 418 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Baxi 400 418 might be an option for you to consider.

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.

Would the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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 400 418 heat only boiler has an output rate of 18 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


What are the dimensions of the Baxi 400 418 boiler?

The size of the Baxi 400 418 boiler is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Baxi 400 418 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 400 418 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 energy efficient is the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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.

Is the Baxi 400 418 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Baxi 400 418 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in 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 which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Baxi 400 418 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

What is the warranty period on a Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Baxi 400 418 covers all repair-related costs for 5 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Baxi 400 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 400 418 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi 400 418 may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 400 418 heat only is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Baxi 400 418 are

The Baxi 400 418 is 625 mm in height, 370 mm in width and 270 mm in depth.

Is the Baxi 400 418 condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 400 418 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the heat only Baxi 400 418 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing a Baxi 400 418 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Baxi 400 418 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Baxi 400 418 is rated "A".

What is the warranty period on a Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler?

The Baxi 400 418 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years following installation.
