Baxi Platinum 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi Platinum 28 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Baxi Platinum 28 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Is the Baxi Platinum 28 combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Baxi Platinum 28 combi's output at 28 kW, which types of property would this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Baxi Platinum 28 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


How large is a Baxi Platinum 28 boiler?

The Baxi Platinum 28's dimensions are 780 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 345 mm [D].

Is the Baxi Platinum 28 condensing or non-condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Baxi Platinum 28 is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Baxi Platinum 28 combi boiler good for 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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

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

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Baxi Platinum 28 has an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and it 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 Platinum 28 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

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

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Baxi Platinum 28 are covered by a 10 year warranty.

Baxi Platinum 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Baxi Platinum 28 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Baxi Platinum 28 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Should I install a Baxi Platinum 28 combi boiler in my house or apartment?

Whether this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi 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 Platinum 28 combi outputs at a maximum of 28 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Baxi Platinum 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Baxi Platinum 28 - size in millimetres

The measurements of the Baxi Platinum 28 are 780 mm by 450 mm by 345 mm.

Is the Baxi Platinum 28 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Baxi Platinum 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.

How does the Baxi Platinum 28 combi boiler rate environmentally?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Baxi Platinum 28 combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Baxi Platinum 28 was given an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

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.

This European legislation intends 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 Platinum 28 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty period on a Baxi Platinum 28 combi boiler?

The Baxi Platinum 28 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
