Baxi 400 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 400 430 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 400 430 is certainly one to 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.

Should I install a Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler in my home?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Baxi 400 430

The dimensions of the Baxi 400 430 are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Baxi 400 430 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 400 430 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 400 430 heat only boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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.

Will installing a Baxi 400 430 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Baxi 400 430 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK 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 400 430, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Baxi Baxi 400 430 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.

Baxi 400 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 400 430 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Baxi 400 430 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Would the Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Baxi 400 430 heat only is 30 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Baxi 400 430 size

The Baxi 400 430 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

400 430 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 400 430 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

How does the Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi 400 430 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

The energy efficiency rating of the Baxi 400 430 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).

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 400 430, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Baxi 400 430 heat only boiler?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 5 years with the Baxi 400 430 boiler.
