Baxi EcoBlue 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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 18 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler is 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Baxi EcoBlue 18 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.

Does the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system protect the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British 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.

Would installing a Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 has an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK grade 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 18 is "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Baxi EcoBlue 18 lasts for 5 years.

Baxi EcoBlue 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Would the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system be a suitable choice of boiler 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".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler has an output of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Baxi EcoBlue 18?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 stands at 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Baxi EcoBlue 18 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system rated as environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many 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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Baxi EcoBlue 18 are 89.1% with a SEDBUK rating 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 18 has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period on a Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.
