Baxi Platinum 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi Platinum 33 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Baxi Platinum 33 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is a Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler suitable 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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Baxi Platinum 33 combi's output is 33 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler's flow rate is 14 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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.


Making space for the Baxi Platinum 33

The Baxi Platinum 33 boiler measures 780 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 345 mm [D] in size.

Is the Baxi Platinum 33 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Baxi Platinum 33 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.

Is the Baxi Platinum 33 combi environmentally friendly?

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.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would choosing a Baxi Platinum 33 combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Platinum 33 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Baxi Platinum 33 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Baxi Platinum 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Baxi Platinum 33 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Baxi’s Platinum 33 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 Platinum 33 combi boiler has an output rate of 33 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable 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 33 Combi boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Homeowners considering fitting a combi boiler to their home need to consider flow rates as well as output rates.

The flow rate is a measurement of the volume of water a combi can instantly heat and send to the taps and radiators around your home. The higher the likely demand for hot water in your home, the higher your combi's flow rate should be. This Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler's flow rate is 14 L/m.

Unlike heat only or system boilers, combi boilers don't store hot water in a tank for later use - instead, they draw it directly from the mains. This means that the volume of water your boiler can actually process is constrained by the flow rate of water in the mains pipe.

So, if you choose a combi boiler with a 15l/m flow rate but the flow rate in your mains pipe is 12l/m, the combi boiler's working flow rate is also 12l/m.

Combi boilers are also not always the correct choice for homes with multiple bathrooms, a high number of radiators, or where more than one family member will want to use hot water at the same time.

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.


What are the dimensions of the Baxi Platinum 33 boiler?

The Baxi Platinum 33 measures 780 mm high and 450 mm wide by a depth of 345 mm.

Baxi Platinum 33 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi Platinum 33 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 Platinum 33 combi good for the environment?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Baxi Platinum 33 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance 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 Platinum 33 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a band rating of "A".

The Baxi Platinum 33 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Am I covered if my Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler breaks down?

The Baxi Platinum 33 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 10 years after installation.
