LPG Option
Recognising homeowners’ diverse needs, Baxi has thoughtfully included a 24kW LPG model in the 200 Combi 2 range.

Furthermore, the boiler is compatible with future connected services, laying the groundwork for integrating smart home technologies. This ensures that the Baxi 200 Combi 2 remains a forward-thinking choice for homeowners seeking a blend of traditional reliability and modern convenience.

Safety Features
Safety is paramount in the design of the Baxi 200 Combi 2 Boiler. It is equipped with a combined Pressure Relief Valve (PVR) and drain, enhancing safety by managing excess pressure within the system. Additionally, the boiler includes an internal automatic bypass, a feature that ensures consistent operation even under varying flow rates and conditions. These safety features not only protect the boiler’s components but also ensure the household’s well-being, offering homeowners peace of mind.

Warranty and Support

The Baxi 200 Combi 2 Boiler is designed for efficiency and reliability and is backed by comprehensive warranty coverage and support, which underscores Baxi’s commitment to customer satisfaction and peace of mind.

Warranty Coverage
The Baxi 200 Combi 2 comes with 2-year parts and labour warranty, providing homeowners with assurance against manufacturing defects and ensuring that any issues encountered are addressed promptly without additional cost. This warranty coverage is a testament to Baxi’s confidence in the durability and performance of its products. However, customers need to note that warranty validity requires registration within 30 days of installation and adherence to the terms and conditions provided by Baxi. These conditions typically include requirements for installation by a qualified professional and regular servicing to maintain the boiler in optimal working order. This warranty policy not only protects the investment made by the homeowner but also emphasises the importance of proper maintenance for long-term reliability and efficiency.

Customer Support and Training
Baxi stands out for its exceptional customer support and dedication to the professional development of installers. Homeowners can access Baxi’s customer support team for assistance with any questions or issues, ensuring a seamless experience from installation to ongoing maintenance.

Installation and Servicing Requirements

The Baxi 200 Combi 2 Boiler is designed with flexibility and convenience in mind, not just in its operation but also regarding its installation and servicing.

Space Requirements
Specific space requirements must be met during installation for the Baxi 200 Combi 2 to operate safely and efficiently. These requirements facilitate optimal performance and ease of access for routine maintenance and servicing. The boiler dimensions allow for a compact fit, but additional space is necessary to adhere to safety and operational guidelines:

  • Side Clearance:
    A minimum of 5mm clearance is required on either side of the boiler, allowing for adequate ventilation and access for servicing.
  • Upper Clearance:
    At least 178mm of space above the boiler must be maintained to ensure safe and efficient flue operation.
  • Lower Clearance:
    A minimum of 200mm clearance below the boiler is required for access to controls and essential maintenance tasks.
  • Front Clearance:
    While the boiler requires only 6mm clearance during operation, at least 450mm of front clearance is necessary for servicing. This ensures that technicians have sufficient space to perform any required maintenance safely and effectively.

Adhering to these space requirements ensures the Baxi 200 Combi 2 Boiler is installed in a location that supports its longevity and efficiency while providing technicians with safe access during servicing and repairs.

Flue Options
The Baxi 200 Combi 2 offers versatile flue options to accommodate a wide range of installation scenarios, ensuring that the boiler can be fitted in various property types without compromising on safety or efficiency:

  • Horizontal Flue:
    Ideal for installations where the boiler is located on an external wall, allowing the flue to exit directly behind the boiler. This option is suitable for most standard installations, providing a straightforward and efficient flue solution.
  • Vertical Flue:
    Used when the boiler cannot be positioned on an external wall or when a horizontal flue is not feasible. A vertical flue allows the removal of exhaust gases through the roof, offering flexibility for boiler placement within the property.

Baxi provides a range of flue kits and accessories, including telescopic flue options, bends, and extensions, to ensure that the flue system can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the installation site. By selecting the appropriate flue option and utilising available accessories, installers can ensure that the Baxi 200 Combi 2 is installed in compliance with all regulations and performance standards.

Accessories and Optional Add-ons

The Baxi 200 Combi 2 Boiler stands out for its efficiency, compact design, and adaptability. However, its functionality and user experience can be further enhanced through various optional accessories and add-ons. These accessories augment the boiler’s performance, provide greater control over heating systems, and facilitate installation and maintenance.

Programmable Thermostats
For homeowners looking to optimise their heating schedules and improve energy efficiency, Baxi offers a range of programmable thermostats. These devices allow for precise temperature control and setting heating schedules that align with the household’s routine, reducing energy wastage and enhancing comfort. The Baxi uSense, smart room thermostat, is one notable option, offering intuitive operation and the ability to control your heating remotely via a smartphone app.

Stand-off Frames
The stand-off frame is an essential add-on for installations where pipework needs to be routed behind the boiler. It provides a neat solution by creating additional space between the boiler and the wall, allowing pipes to be concealed and ensuring a cleaner finish. This is particularly useful in renovations or replacing older boilers where the existing pipework does not align with the new boiler’s connections.

Flue Extensions and Accessories
Baxi provides a comprehensive range of flue extensions and accessories to accommodate different installation scenarios, whether due to the boiler’s location within the property or specific architectural features. This includes horizontal and vertical flue kits, telescopic extensions, bends, and terminals, ensuring that the flue system can be customised to meet the installation requirements effectively. These flue solutions are critical for safe and efficient operation, allowing exhaust gases to be expelled outside the property correctly.

Filling Loops and Easy-Fill Permanent Filling Links
Maintaining the correct water pressure in your heating system is vital. Baxi offers filling loops and Easy-Fill permanent filling links to simplify the process of topping up the system’s water pressure. These accessories are particularly beneficial during routine maintenance or when the system indicates low pressure, providing a convenient solution for installers and homeowners.

IFOS (In-Flue Outdoor Sensor)
For those looking to enhance their boiler’s efficiency further, the Multifit IFOS is an innovative accessory. It adjusts the boiler’s operation based on external temperature changes, ensuring optimal comfort and efficiency. This accessory is compatible with the Baxi 200 Combi 2 and can contribute to energy savings over time.
