Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 - regular, system or combi?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

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

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only 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 measures 625 mm in height and has a width of 370 mm and a depth of 270 mm.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Baxi EcoBlue 12 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

How does the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only rate environmentally?

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has been given a rating of 89.2% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has an ERP rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Baxi EcoBlue 12 breaks down?

On the Baxi EcoBlue 12, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 - regular, system or combi?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi EcoBlue 12 might be a suitable option for you.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler from the EcoBlue range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler is 12 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler?

The size of the Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Baxi EcoBlue 12 as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 has been given a rating of 89.2% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

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".

Is this Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only covered by a warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Baxi EcoBlue 12 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
