Baxi Boiler Prices, Installation Costs, and Homeowner Reviews

When people think of getting their boiler replaced, there’s usually one brand that stands out — the reputable, cream-of-the-crop Worcester Bosch. But there are other high-quality boiler brands that offer a perfect alternative — like Baxi.

In this guide, we’ll discuss Baxi boilers’ prices, warranties, and look at how they measure up to top competing brands.

Are Baxi Boilers Any Good?

Yes, Baxi boilers are very decent, and the brand has a stellar reputation. Baxi have been around since 1866, and still manufacture their heating solutions in the UK. Their parent company, iBDR Thermea Group, also own the following brands:

  • Potterton
  • Main Heating
  • Heatrae Sadia
  • Megaflo
  • Remeha
  • Andrews Water Heaters
  • Potterton Commercial

In a highly competitive market, you don’t build a brand as big as Baxi unless your products are top quality, and prices are competitive.

Baxi Boiler Reviews

Like purchasing any product on Amazon, it’s worth doing some research before buying your new boiler. So, I went and found some reviews…

Trustpilot is probably the most frequent place one could check — their review rating on Trustpilot is very high, at 86% for Excellent and Great. And that’s from almost 30,000 user opinions — which is huge.

How Do Baxi Boilers’ Warranties and Prices Compare With the Competition?

Baxi’s warranties and prices are on par with those of industry-leading contenders. 

Baxi’s warranty on their combi boilers is up to 10 years. This is as long as warranties get, and comparable to the warranty terms offered by the top boiler brands.

In terms of the price, Baxi are up there with the more expensive brands, including Worcester and Vaillant.

Being a high-quality brand and offering long warranties, Baxi simply doesn’t compare to cheap and unreliable boilers. We’re talking about those that typically offer a few years’ warranty because their manufacturer has no faith in their product.

There’s a good reason to avoid cheaper boiler brands — most of the cost of your new boiler installation, isn’t the boiler. The majority of the cost comes from fittings, parts, and labour. So, you might as well spend a few extra quid and get something that’s going to last.

Baxi’s Best Budget Boiler

But, if you do need a combi boiler without breaking the bank, there’s a Baxi boiler model that’s ridiculously cheap — the Baxi 600.

We’ve already wrote up a quick review of the Baxi 600 and labelled it as one of the best compact boilers. This gas boiler is available as a 24kW (Baxi 624), or 30kW (Baxi 630), and comes with a 7-year warranty. In our opinion, it tops the list for being the cheapest when looking at comparable boilers from leading brands.

If you live in a small-to-medium sized property, starting your search with a Baxi 600 is a stellar idea.

Baxi Boiler Prices

To give you an idea when comparing Baxi against other brands, we’ve listed some price estimates for their combi, regular, and system boilers. Please note, regardless of the boiler type, these prices are for the boiler only (i.e. no flue or additional fittings), and don’t include the cost of installation.

Typically, you’ll be able to get an equivalent Worcester Bosch boiler fitted for a similar price or cheaper via Heatable, with a 10-year warranty.

Baxi System Boiler Prices

You’ll find that Baxi system boiler prices at in the higher end of the scale. These exclude the cost of the hot water cylinder, which you’ll also need to get if you haven’t got one already.

BoilerPrices
EcoBlue System 12kW (7-year warranty)£915
EcoBlue System 15kW£935
EcoBlue System 18kW£965
EcoBlue System 24kW£990
EcoBlue System 28kW£1,050
EcoBlue System 32kW£1,150

Fitting Costs for Baxi Boilers

As a guestimate, expect to add on around £1,100 onto the cost of the boiler. That’s if you want your boiler protected with a magnetic system filter (advisable), and assuming there will be some additional works (moving a flue, re-piping natural gas mains, core drilling for a flue in a new location and so on).

So, as an example, a reasonable price for a Baxi 624 compact combi boiler, or a Baxi Duo Tec combi would be around £1,775. For the newer Baxi 800 range, you can expect to pay £2,200 and up.

However, without knowing the exact boiler you need, or additional materials required, it’s hard to gauge the exact installation costs.

For example, a horizontal flue will cost around £90. With a couple of extensions, a vertical flue could cost £200 or more. And, that’s just one of dozens of variables.

How Much Does a Baxi Boiler Cost to Run?

If you’re on the fence about replacing your boiler, it’s worth considering the energy efficiency and running costs of your current appliance.

A recent survey by the Energy Saving Trust suggests that owners of large properties could see yearly savings of £305 by replacing an old boiler with a new, efficient model.

There’s a good chance you’ve seen a range of boiler replacement companies offering boiler finance (a guide to getting boilers on finance can be found here).

Typically, you’ll find deals from £17 per month. This means that even if you’re only saving £204 per year on energy bills, your new boiler will be paid for, simply due to the energy savings you’re making monthly.

How Long Should the Warranty Be on Your New Boiler?

If you’ve researched other boiler brands, you’ll see there are warranties available from 2 years upwards. Typically, we’d not recommend buying a new boiler that has a warranty that’s less than 5 years.

The cost of boiler repairs can quickly spiral out of control. Some parts (a PCB replacement for instance) can cost upwards of £400 to fix. And if the boiler is already old and out of warranty, you’ll come dangerously close to having to replace the whole appliance to save money. That’s definitely not something you want to be doing after just 2 years.

So, we’d stick to 5-years as a minimum.

The extra cost to get a warranty of 5 years is minimal, and well worth the price. If possible, we’d even suggest stretching the warranty to 7 years.

And as you can see above, there are plenty of Baxi boilers that come with warranties in the 5-10 year range.

Baxi Boiler Alternatives

There are plenty of quality boiler brands besides Baxi. But, there’s no doubt that Baxi are up there with the best of the best.

If your Gas Safe boiler installer is recommending Baxi, besides their obvious quality, it’s likely they’re choosing Baxi for a reason. Most likely, it’s because a boiler in their range is most suited to your central heating system layout, or, they’re going with something like the Baxi 600 Combi, which offers excellent value for money.

However, if you’re not sure if Baxi is the right brand for you, check out our guide to the best boiler brands. One of the best is certainly Worcester, and you can get them installed at competitive rates here.

Which Type of Baxi Boiler Do You Need?

Below, we’ll help you decide what boiler type is more suitable for your property.

Combi

Combi boilers heat hot water on demand. That means you’ll not need a hot water storage tank. If you have a small-medium sized property with no cylinder or cold feed in the loft, you’ll need a Baxi combi boiler.

Heat-Only

Heat-only boilers use a cold feed that’s usually located in your loft. If you have a cold feed, it’s likely you’ll need a heat-only boiler.

System

Where a combination boiler won’t be able to provide enough hot water demand (large houses with multiple bathrooms), a system boiler is most likely suitable. Instead of relying on a combi boiler to heat hot water on demand, hot water is stored in a cylinder.
