Baxi EcoBlue 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi EcoBlue 18 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Baxi EcoBlue 18 if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

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.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


How large is a Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler?

The size of the Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler is 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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.

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

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".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Baxi EcoBlue 18 is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system boiler?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 5 years with the Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler.

Baxi EcoBlue 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Baxi EcoBlue 18 is one you may wish to consider.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 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.

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 18 system boiler has an output rate of 18 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue 18 System boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Baxi EcoBlue 18

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

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue 18.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue 18 system 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.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will installing a Baxi EcoBlue 18 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 was given an efficiency rating of 89.1% and a band rating of "B".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Baxi EcoBlue 18 has a rating of "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Baxi EcoBlue 18?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Baxi Baxi EcoBlue 18 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.
