Baxi Megaflo 28 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi Megaflo 28 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is a Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler suitable for 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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Baxi Megaflo 28 system's output level is 28 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi Megaflo 28 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi Megaflo 28 System boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Baxi Megaflo 28 boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 measures 780 mm in height by 450 mm in width by 345 mm in depth.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will choosing a Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 Megaflo 28 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a band rating of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Baxi Megaflo 28 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Baxi Megaflo 28 boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Baxi Megaflo 28.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Baxi Megaflo gas Baxi Megaflo 28 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.

How does the Baxi Megaflo 28 system rate environmentally?

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