Baxi 600 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 600 618 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a system boiler for your flat or house, the Baxi 600 618 might be an option for you to consider.

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 a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Baxi 600 618 system's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Baxi 600 618 System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Baxi 600 618 System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Baxi 600 618?

The size of the Baxi 600 618 boiler is 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 285 mm deep.

Is the Baxi 600 618 non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi 600 618 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Baxi 600 618 system boiler 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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Baxi 600 618 system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Baxi 600 618 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 600 618 has a rating of "A" .

How long is the warranty period on a Baxi 600 618 system boiler?

The Baxi 600 618 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 7 years after installation.

Baxi 600 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 600 618 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Baxi 600 618 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

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

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

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

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 600 618 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Baxi 600 618 boiler?

The Baxi 600 618 measures 700 mm high and 390 mm wide by a depth of 285 mm.

Baxi 600 618 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 600 618 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Baxi 600 618 system boiler environmentally friendly?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi 600 618 system would be a good choice for the environment.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Baxi 600 618 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Baxi 600 618, the ERP rating is "A".

If the Baxi 600 618 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Baxi 600 618 are covered by a 7 year warranty.
