Baxi Platinum 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Should I choose a Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler 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 Platinum 33 combi boiler has an output rate of 33 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler for your home, you need to think about "flow rates" as well as output rates. This Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler's flow rate is 14 L/m.

This indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat then distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the higher the flow rate you will require.

However, all combi boilers like the Baxi Platinum 33 draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

This means that they can only heat and distribute water at the rate it enters the property (the "mains pressure" rate). For example, if your mains pressure is 11 litres per minute, this will be the highest flow rate you can achieve even if your boiler's flow rate is 17l/m.

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 the Baxi Platinum 33?

The Baxi Platinum 33 boiler is 780 mm high, 450 mm wide, and 345 mm deep.

Baxi Platinum 33 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi Platinum 33 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

How does the Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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

Would installing a Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Platinum 33 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% 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 Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Baxi Platinum 33 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Is this Baxi Platinum 33 combi covered by a warranty?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 10 years with the Baxi Platinum 33 boiler.

Baxi Platinum 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Baxi Platinum 33 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

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

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

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for 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 size of the Baxi Platinum 33 boiler is 780 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 345 mm deep.

Is the Baxi Platinum 33 a non-condensing or 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?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi Platinum 33 combi would be a good choice for the environment.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Baxi Platinum 33 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK 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.

If the Baxi Platinum 33 combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi Platinum 33 Combi boiler covers you for 10 years.
