Baxi 600 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 600 618 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Baxi 600 618 is a gas system boiler.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Is a Baxi 600 618 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Baxi 600 618 system outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 600 618 System boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Baxi 600 618 system 600 would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Baxi 600 618 boiler

The Baxi 600 618 measures 700 mm in height and has a width of 390 mm and a depth of 285 mm.

Is the Baxi 600 618 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 600 618 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.

Is the Baxi 600 618 system boiler good for the environment?

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.

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 the Baxi 600 618 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Baxi 600 618 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Baxi 600 618 is "TBC".

What is the length of the warranty on the Baxi 600 618?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi 600 618 System boiler covers you for 7 years.

Baxi 600 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi 600 618 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Baxi 600 618 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Should I choose a Baxi 600 618 system 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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Baxi 600 618 system's output is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 600 618 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the Baxi 600 618?

The Baxi 600 618 is 700 mm high by 390 mm wide by 285 mm deep.

Baxi 600 618 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Baxi 600 gas Baxi 600 618 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Baxi 600 618 system rated as environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting 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.

Would installing a Baxi 600 618 system boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

The energy efficiency rating of the Baxi 600 618 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 Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Baxi 600 618 has a rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Baxi 600 618 boiler?

Baxi’s 600 618 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
