Baxi EcoBlue 12 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi EcoBlue 12 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system's output at 12 kW, which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Baxi EcoBlue 12

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has the following dimensions - 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 condensing or non-condensing?

This Baxi EcoBlue 12 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system an environmentally friendly boiler?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 89.1% and a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Baxi EcoBlue 12 is "A".

If the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

You might want to consider the Baxi EcoBlue 12 for your house or flat if you are looking for a system boiler.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system's output level is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Baxi EcoBlue 12?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 measures 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

This Baxi EcoBlue 12 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

How environmentally friendly is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Will choosing to install a Baxi EcoBlue 12 system in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Baxi EcoBlue 12, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Baxi EcoBlue 12 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
