Baxi 800 818 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi 800 818 - standard, combi or system?

The Baxi 800 818 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Should I install a Baxi 800 818 system boiler in my home?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Baxi 800 818 system boiler has an output rate of 18 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi 800 818 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Baxi 800 818 in millimetres

The size of the Baxi 800 818 boiler is 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 285 mm deep.

Is the Baxi 800 818 condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi 800 818 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Baxi 800 818 system good for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Baxi 800 818 system help the environment? Let's see what the 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 800 818 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Baxi 800 818 has an ERP rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Baxi 800 818 come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Baxi Baxi 800 818 boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.

Baxi 800 818 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi 800 818 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

Baxi’s 800 818 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is a Baxi 800 818 system a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Baxi 800 818 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Baxi 800 818 system outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi 800 818 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi 800 818 System boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


The size of the Baxi 800 818

The Baxi 800 818 is 700 mm in height, 390 mm in width and 285 mm in depth.

Is the Baxi 800 818 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Baxi 800 818 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Does the Baxi 800 818 system protect the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would installing the Baxi 800 818 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

The Baxi 800 818 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

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 800 818, the ERP rating is "A".

Am I covered if the Baxi 800 818 system boiler breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi 800 818 System boiler covers you for 10 years.
