Baxi Megaflo 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi Megaflo 18 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 18 boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Should I install a Baxi Megaflo 18 system boiler in my home?

Whether this Baxi Megaflo 18 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

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

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi Megaflo 18 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Baxi Megaflo 18?

The Baxi Megaflo 18 is 780 mm [H] by 450 mm [W] by 345 mm [D] in size.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 18 non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi Megaflo 18 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.

How does the Baxi Megaflo 18 system rate environmentally?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Baxi Megaflo 18 system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Baxi Megaflo 18 are 91% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Baxi Megaflo 18, the ERP rating is "A".

What is the warranty period for the Baxi Megaflo 18?

The Baxi Megaflo 18 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

Baxi Megaflo 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Baxi Megaflo 18 fit into?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi Megaflo 18 may be an option you should consider.

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 Megaflo 18 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Baxi Megaflo 18 System boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Baxi Megaflo 18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Baxi Megaflo 18 System boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Baxi Megaflo 18

The Baxi Megaflo 18 occupies a space of 780 mm high by 450 mm wide and 345 mm deep.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 18 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 18 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Baxi Megaflo 18 system?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

If you decide to install a Baxi Megaflo 18 system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a 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 Megaflo 18 was awarded an efficiency rating of 91% 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 (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Baxi Megaflo 18 is "A".

What length of warranty does the Baxi Megaflo 18 come with?

Baxi’s Megaflo 18 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
