Baxi 800 816 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Baxi’s 800 816 - system, regular or combi?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 800 816 might be a suitable option for you.

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 a Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Baxi 800 816 heat only's output at 16 kW, which types of property would this Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Baxi 800 816 heat only 800 would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Baxi 800 816 fit in my house?

The Baxi 800 816 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

800 816 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi 800 816 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 800 816 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

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 800 816, the ERP rating is "A".

Am I covered if my Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Baxi 800 816 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 10 years.

Baxi 800 816 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 800 816 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Baxi 800 816 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of 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.

Would the Baxi 800 816 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler has an output level of 16 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Baxi 800 816 fit in my house?

Baxi’s 800 816 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi 800 816 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Baxi 800 816 heat only?

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

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Baxi 800 816 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 800 816 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

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 800 816, the ERP rating is "A".

What warranty does the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler come with?

Baxi offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Baxi 800 816.
