Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue 15 - standard, combi or system?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi EcoBlue 15 might be a suitable option for you.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Baxi EcoBlue 15 boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 15 stands at 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide and 270 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 15 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue 15 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Would choosing a Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Baxi EcoBlue 15 was given an efficiency rating of 89.2% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

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 15 has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Baxi EcoBlue 15?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Baxi EcoBlue 15 boiler.

Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 15 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 15 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Should I install a Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler in my home?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Baxi EcoBlue 15 boiler?

The dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue 15 are 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 15 condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue 15 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

How does the Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Baxi EcoBlue 15 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Baxi EcoBlue 15 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.2% and a band rating of "B".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Baxi EcoBlue 15 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Baxi EcoBlue 15 breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Baxi EcoBlue 15 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
