Baxi 800 816 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Baxi 800 816 boiler may be worth considering.

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.

Is the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Baxi 800 816 heat only is 16 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Baxi 800 816 size

The Baxi 800 816 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Baxi 800 816 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Baxi 800 gas Baxi 800 816 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 800 816 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Baxi 800 816 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Baxi 800 816 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Baxi 800 816 has a rating of "A".

Does a Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

A parts and labour warranty of 10 years is included when you purchase the Baxi 800 816 boiler through PlumbProud.

Baxi 800 816 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi 800 816 is certainly one to consider.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Baxi 800 816?

The Baxi 800 816 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is the Baxi 800 816 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

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 considered environmentally friendly?

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

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing to install a Baxi 800 816 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Baxi 800 816 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Baxi 800 816 is "A".

If the Baxi 800 816 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

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