The Baxi 200 Combi is an energy efficient gas condensing boiler that can meet the hot water and central heating needs of most homes.
Baxi is a popular boiler brand that manufactures a large range of reasonably priced combi boilers, such as the Baxi 200 Combi. This gas condensing boiler is designed to fit in a kitchen cupboard and features the latest technology to ensure it satisfies the needs of all those who own one. The boiler is also A-rated for efficiency and compatible with smart thermostats that can be controlled using a smartphone or tablet.
How Much Does this Boiler Cost?
Baxi 200 Combi prices range from £630 to £700, and the cost will depend on whether you choose the 24kW or 28kW model. Even though these prices include VAT, they don’t cover the cost of installation, which is likely to be higher than the boiler itself. It’s best to shop around and get quotes from different companies because prices also vary between suppliers and installers.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
This is a combi boiler (or combination boiler), so you won’t need to find space to install loft tanks or a separate hot water cylinder because it will heat your water directly from the mains. Like most combi boilers, the Baxi 200 Combi is a great option for smaller properties and homes with no more than just one bathroom. But as the boiler is available in two heat outputs, it’s recommended for small and medium-sized properties.
As it’s important that you select the right boiler type and size (kW) for your home, you should ask a Gas Safe registered engineer to assess your property and requirements prior to purchasing the Baxi 200 Combi.
Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?

By being a modern condensing boiler, it uses less energy and can recover more heat to help save you more money on your energy bills. You can even use this boiler with an optional uSense smart thermostat that uses an app and enables you to monitor your energy use and control heating on and off times from a smartphone. This means you can schedule your central heating to switch on and off, even when you’re out of the house.
Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?
Baxi’s 200 Combi comes with a range of controls that you would expect to find on most modern boilers. The user controls are situated on the front of the boiler and include a reset and operating mode selector switch, as well as knobs that let you adjust your hot water and central heating temperatures.
