Baxi 400 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Baxi 400 418 fit into?

You might want to consider the Baxi 400 418 for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Baxi 400 418 heat only's output level is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Baxi 400 418 heat only would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Baxi 400 418 boiler

The Baxi 400 418 is 625 mm [H] by 370 mm [W] by 270 mm [D] in size.

400 418 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi 400 418 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Baxi 400 418 heat only considered 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.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Baxi 400 418 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

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 (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Baxi 400 418, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

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

What kind of boiler is the Baxi 400 418 - standard, combi or system?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 400 418 is certainly one to consider.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Would the Baxi 400 418 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler 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.

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?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Baxi 400 418 boiler?

The Baxi 400 418 measures 625 mm in height and has a width of 370 mm and a depth of 270 mm.

Is the Baxi 400 418 non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi 400 418 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Would choosing the Baxi 400 418 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The Baxi 400 418 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, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Baxi 400 418 has a rating of "A" .
