Baxi offers several combi boiler ranges, including Baxi Ecoblue, Baxi Platinum HE A combi boilers, Baxi Duo-tec GA combi boilers and Neta-tec GA combi-boilers. It also produces the Baxi Solo heat-only boiler range, the Baxi Bermuda back boiler range, and the Baxi Megaflo compact system GA boiler range.
