Baxi has launched a new combi boiler alongside a new app-operated smart room thermostat..
The Baxi 600 Combi 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 an industry-leading choice of flue lengths, bends and accessories.
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. Weighing in at less than 30kg, the 600 boiler is lightweight yet robust and 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.
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, says: ““uSense is 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.”
