Recommendation Pays Off
Year Warranty Adds Peace of Mind
Marathon has also arranged a 10-year extended
parts and labor warranty on all Baxi boilers at
Phase 2 of High Point — providing further
protection of the housing authority’s investment.
Seattle Housing commissioned a comprehensive
independent study to examine the costs and
benefits associated with High Point redevelopment.
The 97-page report,
Sharing The Benefits of
Building Green: A Study of The High Point
showed that homes with Baxi units in
Phase 1 of the High Point community enjoyed total
fuel consumption savings of 37% over the results
for another Seattle Housing redevelopment that is
using a different hydronic heating solution.
Moreover, total utility costs for High Point were
below the Seattle average.
The High Point study showed that the inclusion of
conservation technology, including the Baxi
hydronic heating system, was a sound investment
decision. The report also noted that as utility rates
increase, and utilities and government agencies
add new financial incentives for conservation, the
return on investment can be expected to grow
even larger.
Tom Phillips says Seattle Housing will continue to
measure return on its green building investments.
We expect to achieve even greater savings from
Baxi heating solutions, as we gain more knowledge
about how to get the most out of Baxi systems.”

The Baxi Luna wall-hung boiler...
supported all of our green goals.
It generates fuel use savings
while helping us make the most
of space limitations...allowing us
to fit a stackable washer and
dryer in the same closet as the
combination central heating and
domestic hot water boiler.
