Baxi 630 Combi Boiler Review
The 630 condensing compact combi gas boiler has been specially designed and painstakingly manufactured by Baxi to become a highly reliable and efficient heating and hot water unit.
Will the Baxi 630 Combi Boiler be suitable for my home?
Combi boilers provide both heating and hot water on demand by utilising your mains water supply, meaning that you needn’t have bulky tanks or large cylinders taking up extra space inside your home.
The Baxi 630 Combi boiler can fit well inside most properties and benefits from a single spring loaded level which opens up the opportunity to top-up the system in a fast and simple manner, whilst being fully compatible with the Baxi uSense Smart thermostat too.
What are the heating controls?
As the name might suggest, a combi boiler combines a water heater and central heating boiler in one easy to use device.
If your thermostat sends a signal to your boiler to turn on as the temperature is falling below the pre-set point, then the boiler will begin to start up so that heat can be flushed around the internal central heating system.
When your thermostat’s pre-set temperature point has been reached, the boiler will then ‘modulate’ or essentially turn itself off slowly, keeping the heat pumping at the correct temperature to save energy.
When you turn a hot water tap on, an internal valve will divert the heat towards the domestic hot water supply, giving you hot water until you decide to turn the tap off at which point the valve will return to the aforementioned ‘central heating’ position.
The heat can be sent towards either the central heating system or your hot water, but never both at the same time.
How big is the Baxi 630 Combi Boiler?
The Baxi Combi Boiler is so compact in its size that it is cupboard fit.
This Baxi boiler is 29cm, 290mm deep, so it’s ideal for homeowners that are looking to save space yet still receive the benefits of an amazing Combi boiler.
It weighs in at less than 30kg, so it’s a breeze to lift and install during the boiler installation without the need for excessive support.
What home is the Baxi 630 Combi Boiler best suited to?
Additionally to the most popular 30 kW unit, Baxi provides 360 boilers that have output ratings of both 24 kW and 36 kW.
The smaller 24 kW compact boiler model is absolutely ideal for smaller homes or flats that contain just 1 bathroom and do not have a very high demand for heating or lots of hot water.
On the other hand, the much larger 36kW is for bigger homes with several bathrooms that requires a little more power to cover your property in its entirety.
However, it’s important that you can ensure the heat output of the boiler you choose is correct for your needs.
Combi boilers contain two separate heat outputs, one which is for domestic hot water and another which is for central heating.
This means that more effort (and therefore more heat) is needed to produce sufficient amounts of hot water than is needed to heat each of your radiators, so your required hot water output can usually determine your choice of boiler size.
This boiler manufacturer has worked hard to ensure this boiler brand offers a boiler to fit perfectly inside every size of property, so there’s no need to worry about your home suffering from cold spots no matter how grand or cosy it may be.
How long is the warranty on the Baxi 630 Combi Boiler?
The Baxi 630 Combi boiler comes with an amazing 7 year warranty as standard, allowing you to adopt ultimate peace of mind knowing that your boiler is covered.
This is a very respectable warranty compared with many other boilers that are covered for a matter of months, so you can feel good knowing that you will receive the best service for years to come even after investing in your boiler.
Is the Baxi 630 Combi Boiler energy efficient?
The Baxi 630 Combi boiler holds a respectable SEDBUK efficiency rating of around 89%, making it ErP A-rated heat.
It’s also been A-rated for domestic hot water with a very high flow rate of 12.2 litres per minute, meaning that it is super energy efficient.
How much does a Baxi 630 Combi Boiler cost?
The typical price of a Baxi 630 Combi boiler is around £800-850, with installation costs ranging based on the project itself (anywhere from no cost to £1,000).
It all depends on the power output that you choose, whether this be 24kW, 30kW or 36kW.
