Baxi has launched a pioneering new combi boiler, which the company says is set to make light work of the complex installation process. To coincide with this, the manufacturer has also developed a new smart room thermostat which allows customers to control their heating using an app.
The Baxi 600 Combi has been designed with the needs of the installer in mind. The launch follows extensive research by the brand, which identified ease of installation, efficiency and reliability as the top product priorities for engineers.
As a result, the Baxi 600 ticks all of these boxes. The boiler has been designed from the ground up for simple installation, including having the pipes behind facility and within the boiler casing, and the layout of the internal components are easily accessible to allow for straightforward servicing. It has a centre flue for easy replacement of older boilers, and comes with a choice of flue lengths, bends and accessories.
Despite having robust brass components, the boiler is extremely lightweight, weighing in at less than 30kg. As a bonus for householders, the 600 Combi is also small enough to fit into a cupboard for a discreet finish, and comes with new accessory, Easy-Fill, which allows consumers to easily repressurise their boiler themselves. Equally favourable for customers, the new boiler benefits from a seven-year warranty for extra peace of mind.
For the first time, Baxi has also introduced its own smart control, uSense. Compatible with all combi boilers using the 230V switch live, and also connect via OpenTherm for additional features.
Jon Phillips, head of product management at Baxi, comments: “From inception through to design and delivery, the Baxi 600 Combi has been created with our loyal customers in mind. We want to make life easier for installers, so with this boiler they can be assured of the highest integrity of product, unrivalled reliability, exceptional ease of installation and, of course, high efficiency each and every time.
“uSense is equally exciting for installers looking to improve upon a customer’s heating system. With its own downloadable app, the householder’s heating can be controlled by a smartphone or tablet, from anywhere. Users can even monitor their energy use and costs, so optimum money-saving settings can be calculated. It’s a real win-win for the installer and homeowner alike.”
The Baxi 600 Combi is available in 24kW and 30kW outputs, and comes with a seven-year parts and labour warranty. uSense comes with a three-year parts warranty.
Both products are available from 6 November 2017.
