Your Baxi boiler is one of the most technical appliances in your home. It is also one that you may take for granted until something goes wrong.

What is NTC?


An NTC or ‘Negative Temperature Coefficient’ is a type of thermistor (or thermal resistor).

Basically, it’s an electrical component that helps to regulate the temperature of your boiler. So, when you set your heating to a certain temperature it will make sure your boiler stays at that temperature.
