Baxi Megaflo 15 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Baxi Megaflo 15?

The Baxi Megaflo 15 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Should I install a Baxi Megaflo 15 system boiler in my house or apartment?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Baxi Megaflo 15 system is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable 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.


What dimensions does a Baxi Megaflo 15 have?

The Baxi Megaflo 15 is 780 mm in height, 450 mm in width and 345 mm in depth.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 15 non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Baxi Megaflo 15 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 15 system a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will installing a Baxi Megaflo 15 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

The Baxi Megaflo 15 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 91% 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 (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Baxi Megaflo 15 is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Baxi Megaflo 15 boiler?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 7 years with the Baxi Megaflo 15 boiler.

Baxi Megaflo 15 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi Megaflo 15 - standard, combi or system?

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi Megaflo 15 might be a suitable option for you.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Should I choose a Baxi Megaflo 15 system boiler for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Baxi Megaflo 15 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi Megaflo 15 System boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Baxi Megaflo 15 boiler

The size of the Baxi Megaflo 15 boiler is 780 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 345 mm deep.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 15 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 15 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.

How does the Baxi Megaflo 15 system boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Baxi Megaflo 15 system be a suitable choice?

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 Megaflo 15 was given a 91% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 Megaflo 15 has a rating of "A".

What warranty does the Baxi Megaflo 15 system boiler come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Baxi Megaflo 15 covers all repair-related costs for 7 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
