How Much Does this Boiler Cost?
The Baxi 600 Combi can be purchased with an output of 24kW, 30kW or 36kW, so the price will depend on which size is required for your property. Although the cost of the boiler usually ranges between £710 and £1060, the amount you’ll need to pay will also be determined by which supplier or installer you choose to buy the appliance from. It’s worth shopping around to see if any companies or heating professionals are offering any deals on this boiler and the installation.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
Combi boilers (or combination boilers) are ideal for most homes but they are particularly great for properties where space is limited because they don’t need to be installed alongside a hot water storage cylinder or tanks in the loft. Although there is a Baxi 600 Combi option available for small, medium and large homes, most heating engineers will tell you that combi boilers aren’t the best for dwellings with more than one bathroom because they have trouble coping with too many taps running simultaneously.
When it comes to choosing the right output, the greater your demands, the higher the output must be. As the most important things to get right are the boiler type and output, we always recommend you consult a qualified Gas Safe engineer before you any spend money on a new boiler.
Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?
Yes. The Baxi 600 Combi is an A-rated boiler that has an excellent efficiency of 93%. We actually think this is pretty impressive for a reasonably priced condensing gas boiler. What’s more, this boiler is compatible with the Baxi uSense smart room thermostat that allows you to control your central heating from a smartphone or tablet. This optional accessory also lets you monitor how much energy you’re using to help you save some cash on your bills.
Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?
We think so. The user controls include adjustable central heating and hot water temperature switches, along with a clear LCD display that shows the temperature, boiler status and fault identification. You can purchase some optional controls to improve efficiency, performance and comfort levels, such as mechanical timers and a selection of room thermostats (including the smart uSense control). It’s a small boiler that can be installed in a kitchen cupboard and has a facility within its casing to hide the pipes. The Baxi 600 Combi also comes with an easy-fill permanent filling link to make it easy for you to top up your system, as well as a simple hanging bracket and different flue lengths to enable you to choose where you would like the boiler to be fitted.
