Baxi Megaflo 28 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 a standard, combi or system 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.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler from the Megaflo range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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 Megaflo 28 system boiler has an output rate of 28 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Baxi Megaflo 28 System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Baxi Megaflo 28

The Baxi Megaflo 28 is 780 mm high by 450 mm wide by 345 mm deep.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi Megaflo 28 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Baxi Megaflo 28 system?

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

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Will installing a Baxi Megaflo 28 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Baxi Megaflo 28 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Baxi Megaflo 28, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What is the warranty period for the Baxi Megaflo 28?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi Megaflo 28 System boiler covers you for 7 years.

Baxi Megaflo 28 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

Should I install a Baxi Megaflo 28 system boiler in my house or apartment?

Whether this Baxi Megaflo 28 System 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 Megaflo 28 system is 28 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Baxi Megaflo 28 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for 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 is 780 mm in height, 450 mm in width and 345 mm in depth.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Baxi Megaflo 28 as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Baxi Megaflo 28 system an environmentally friendly boiler?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Will choosing to install a Baxi Megaflo 28 system in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Baxi Megaflo 28 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Baxi Megaflo 28 is "A".

If the Baxi Megaflo 28 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Baxi Megaflo 28 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
