Baxi Boiler Types

Within the Baxi boiler range, there is a choice of boiler models, each with their own unique features and advantages. We have the skills and expertise to help you choose the most suitable boiler for your household. Taking your personal requirements into consideration, we’ll aim to ensure that your new Baxi boiler meets your needs both efficiently and cost-effectively. Baxi boiler types include:

 

  • Combi boilers – Baxi combi boilers are designed to deliver both heating and hot-water from one appliance, without the need for water storage tanks or cylinders. They tend to be compact in size which could be a great advantage if you don’t have a large amount of free space in your home. A Baxi combi boiler is typically an ideal choice for most small and medium-sized households with one bathroom and a low to average demand for hot water.
  •  
  • Regular/conventional boilers – The regular boilers manufactured by Baxi are designed to provide effective heating and hot water through the use of an additional hot-water cylinder and also a cold-water tank. If your home already has a traditional central heating system, one of Baxi’s regular boilers could be a suitable option for you as this could enable a quick and easy installation. Regular boilers are typically ideal for medium and large sized homes that have more than one bathroom and a higher than average demand for hot-water.
  •  
  • System boilers – Baxi system boilers are designed to provide homes with efficient heating and hot water; using an additional cylinder for hot-water storage. There’s no need for an additional cold-water tank with a system boiler as their major components are already built-in. A Baxi system boiler could be a great choice for a home that has multiple bathrooms and a high demand for hot-water.

 

Selecting a suitable Baxi boiler for your home could be a difficult task; especially considering the wide range of boiler options that are available.

Baxi warranty

A boiler warranty could provide customers with added peace of mind that should a fault occur with a component within the boiler, the manufacturer could be liable to replace or repair the part without cost to you. Baxi boilers come with a manufacturer-backed warranty of up to 7 years (depending on the boiler model) and could provide you with cover for parts that are faulty from the date of manufacture or parts integral to the boiler; this could include the controls. Terms and conditions apply with all warranties and may be subject to change at any time, so ensure that you check through them thoroughly or contact us if you’d like to learn more about Baxi boiler warranties†.

 

Baxi service and repairs

If your boiler is within its warranty period, you will most likely be required to organise an annual service†. During this your Gas Safe engineer will conduct checks to ensure that your boiler is functioning in a safe and efficient manner without any existing or potential faults. Maintaining your boiler could also potentially help extend its working life, so arranging a service could prove to be significantly beneficial to you in the future!

Whilst your boiler is in warranty, you can contact Baxi directly in the event of a boiler breakdown or fault. Alternatively, you can contact us and we could help to get your boiler back up and running as quickly as possible.
