Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

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

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 heat only's output level is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


How large is the Baxi EcoBlue 12?

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

Baxi EcoBlue 12 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Baxi EcoBlue 12.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.2% with a SEDBUK grading of "B".

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".

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

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Baxi’s EcoBlue 12 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

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

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler has an output rate of 12 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Baxi EcoBlue 12 fit in my house?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 occupies a space of 625 mm high by 370 mm wide and 270 mm deep.

Baxi EcoBlue 12 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How does the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

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

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

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

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 89.2% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

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

How long is the warranty period on the Baxi EcoBlue 12 heat only boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 12 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
