Baxi 600 616 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Baxi 600 616 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Baxi 600 616 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is the Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler has an output of 16 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Baxi 600 616 boiler?

The Baxi 600 616 is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Baxi 600 616 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Baxi 600 616 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

How environmentally friendly is the Baxi 600 616 heat only?

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.

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.

Would choosing a Baxi 600 616 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 600 616 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Baxi 600 616 is "A".

Will I be covered if the Baxi 600 616 heat only breaks down?

The Baxi 600 616 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Baxi 600 616 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 600 616 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Baxi 600 616 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Should I install a Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler in 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 600 616 heat only is 16 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Baxi 600 616 boiler?

The Baxi 600 616 is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep in size.

Is this Baxi boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 600 616 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is choosing the Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Baxi 600 616 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Baxi 600 616 was given an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Baxi 600 616 has an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Baxi 600 616 heat only boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 7 years is included with the Baxi Baxi 600 616 boiler.
