Here at Glow Green we have a broad range of Baxi combi, heat only and system boilers available from stock, along with a selection of complementary flues, controls and accessories. The Baxi brand name is synonymous with boilers – known for their reliability, affordability and efficiency.
If you want a trustworthy and versatile boiler at a reasonable expense, a Baxi boiler might just be the right choice for your home. When you think of Baxi, the range of boiler should be one of the first things that comes to mind. There is a wide selection of all types, designed for all different establishments.
Combi boilers are the UK’s most popular type of boiler for gas central heating and hot water, and with good reason. They're easy to install, simple to operate and economical to run. Combi (short for combination) boilers contain all the necessary elements needed to heat up your radiators and deliver hot water to your taps in one compact unit. This saves valuable space in the home as there is no need for a cylinder or tanks in the loft or cupboards, unlike heat-only or system boilers. A combi boiler generally uses natural gas but can also be converted to LPG.
It's worth noting that combi boilers are a good replacement for back boilers too. Back boilers are practically relics from the olden days and can be dangerous to have around, let alone still use, which is why you should definitely get a new boiler if you still have one. Combi's are an ideal alternative as there are no risks involved with having a combi and it's much more energy efficient. It's also an advisable alternative as installation is easy too.
A combi Baxi boiler heats water instantly when you turn on a hot tap. It comes straight from the mains, so the flow rate at the tap is usually really good. What makes the combi boiler so energy efficient is that it only heats the water you need, when you need it! Baxi combi boiler prices are very reasonable too, starting at around £700.
Below are a couple of Baxi combi boilers worth a glance.
One of the top boilers of the combi range, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance Combi is a reliable boiler choice for any home. The EcoBlue Advance comes with a 10 year boiler warranty, easy to use controls and above average energy efficiency, you could be set for a while. The output rating is ideal for homes with more than one bathroom too. If you want a new boiler with versatility and ease then the EcoBlue Advance is a great choice!
The second of the Baxi combi boilers that are worth recommending is the Baxi 400 combi. Extremely quiet, compact and lightweight, the Baxi 400 Combi can be installed virtually anywhere in your home and also comes with 5 year parts and labour warranty, and it's Energy Saving Trust endorsed. Which means that it has met the industry agreed standards for energy performance.
Combi systems have two independent heat exchangers; one that links to your radiators (normally heated directly by the fuel source), and another that connects to your hot water supply. Combi boilers work by signalling a sensor once you’ve requested hot water which tells the boiler to burn fuel (whether gas, electric or oil). The heat exchanger then gets hot enough to heat the water when it flows over it.
The control valves within combi boilers work in different directions to one another. Therefore, the system will either transport hot water to your radiators or to your hot water tap – however, this will not be done at the same time and the hot water circuit usually takes priority. You can use heating controls to set your heating to your desired temperatures.
A system boiler is a closed system that only requires a boiler and a cylinder, whilst regular boilers require header tanks in the loft to feed the cylinder and to maintain the water level in the radiators.
Unlike heat only boilers, system boilers contain the majority of key components of the heating and hot water system built in already, allowing for much quicker and neat installation. System boilers pump hot water straight through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, reducing heating up time and also reducing running costs.
The system boiler range is more expensive to buy initially than the combi boiler range, however they have better reliability. They are less efficient when heating the tank though, as water is not heated and used at the point of demand.
A Baxi system boiler provides a high flow rate of hot water to deliver quick filling baths or powerful showers, thanks to the in-built pump, without the water running cold elsewhere in the house. They are compatible with unvented hot water storage cylinders, such as Megaflo Eco from Baxi’s sister company Haetrae Sadia. There is no need for a feed or expansion cistern in the loft, which saves space and eliminates the risk of any leaks or frost damage to pipes and tanks too.
A great choice of system boiler is the Baxi 624 24kW system gas boiler. The high efficiency Baxi boiler comes with excellent environmental credentials, as well as performance and style. It's compact, fully modulating and is ideal for a home with more than one bathroom and high demand for hot water.
The Baxi Megaflo system range of gas boilers is ideal for anyone looking to get a system boiler on a budget. They are condensing and come in an array of different outputs, as well as being great for the environment with a band rating of A. It's the perfect choice for homes with a high demand for hot water.
In a system boiler, cold water flows into the boiler directly from the mains supply. It is then heated via a heat exchanger, which transfers energy from the gas jets to the water. Once heated, the water is pumped to the cylinder, where it is stored until needed. As there is a large reservoir of hot water always on hand, a steady supply can be maintained even if multiple taps or showers are in use. The only limitation to the amount of hot water a system boiler can supply is the capacity of the cylinder. If all the hot water is used, you’ll have to wait for more to be heated. In many cases the size of cylinder you choose will ultimately be dictated by the space available.
System boilers also benefit from condensing technology because it is a sealed system. This means that energy is recycled from the exhaust gases to preheat the water, giving the system a much higher energy efficiency rating and helping to reduce your environmental impact and reduce your home’s carbon dioxide footprint. Not to mention this could potentially save you hundreds on annual energy bills.
A heat only boiler is also known as a regular or conventional boiler. These are both terms that you may be more familiar with. The system usually has two tanks situated in the loft, a cylinder and the boiler. This type of boiler uses a storage cistern along with dual feeds, one for cold water and the other for hot.
The first tank is the cold water tank. It fills with water from the mains supply and the water is then heated in the hot water cylinder to supply your taps and shower heads and radiators.
The second tank, sometimes referred to as the feed and expansion tank, will bring in cold water to maintain the water level within the central heating system. This tank may also be used for additional storage should your system heat up too much water.
Despite having their flaws, heat only boilers are particularly useful to large homes, older homes or businesses. Larger homes and businesses may have a considerable demand for water and require multiple taps and showers to use hot water at the same time. With older homes your boiler options might be limited unless you have the money to redo the entire system.
Baxi boilers are renowned for high efficiency and the 415 Heat is no different. It's a regular wall mounted boiler with an efficiency rating of 93% and ErP A-rating for heat which means that it could help to lower your heating bills. It's a regular gas boiler designed for wall-mounted installation in a kitchen cupboard. It also has an output rating of 15kW making it perfect for smaller homes with one bathroom.
In addition to its compact size and low lift-weight, the Baxi 630 has no pump overrun or permanent live switch, it’s suitable for fully pumped, open-vent or sealed systems. An output rating of 30kW means that the Baxi 630 is best suited to larger homes with as many as 20 radiators. The 600 Heat range of Baxi boilers come in different outputs though in case 30kW is too powerful.
Heat only boilers work quite simply despite all of the necessary parts. The cold water tank in the loft will fill with water from the mains supply. This water will go down to the hot water storage ready for when you turn on a shower or hot water tap.
The feed and expansion tank brings in water that feeds down to the boiler. The boiler will ignite and the heat exchanger inside the boiler will warm the water up.
A pump will transport the hot water to the cylinder where it’s kept until your heating is due to come on. When your heating does come on, it will circulate around your radiators.
Heat only boilers also require an expansion vessel. This is because water expands when it is heated up, which could easily cause a build up of pressure that may otherwise damage your pipes and pumps. This vessel controls the expansion to avoid such damage.
