Baxi launches first of its kind weather sensor

Baxi has officially launched the pioneering IFOS (In Flue Outdoor Sensor), which is designed to help make Boiler Plus compliance simple and cost-effective.

The patented Baxi IFOS clips onto the air duct of the horizontal flue terminal, resulting in a straightforward install which takes just minutes. Crucially, this placement also means that there is no need to fit the sensor to a north/north west wall, as it will consistently be hidden from direct sunlight.

Free flow of air over the sensor also allows for more accurate reading of outside conditions, ensuring best possible operation and allowing the homeowner to gain the best possible efficiency benefits.

Installing an IFOS is said to be an easy and affordable way to comply with the new Boiler Plus requirements when combined with a time and temperature control, taking the headache out of staying compliant.

Mike Parsons, head of product management at Baxi, commented: “From inception through to design and delivery, the Baxi IFOS has been created with the needs our customers and the industry as a whole in mind.

“For installers it consists of very few parts and just two wire cable runs back to the boiler down the flue air duct – meaning no drilling or disruption for the homeowner. It’s a real win-win for the installer and homeowner alike.”

The Baxi IFOS will be available from 15 April 2018.
