Baxi EcoBlue 12 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi EcoBlue 12 may be an option you should consider.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

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

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 system's output is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Baxi EcoBlue 12 size

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler is 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

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.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating of the Baxi EcoBlue 12 is 89.1% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

Is this Baxi EcoBlue 12 system covered by a warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years on the Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler to new customers.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Would the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 12 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Baxi EcoBlue 12 dimensions

The size of the Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler is 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

EcoBlue 12 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Baxi EcoBlue 12 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How energy efficient is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Baxi EcoBlue 12 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

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 Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has a rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Baxi EcoBlue 12 system boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Baxi Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.
