Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi boiler right 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+ 33 combi boiler has an output rate of 28 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi boiler in would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 Combi boiler's flow rate is 14 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 - size in millimetres

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 occupies a space of 700 mm high by 390 mm wide and 295 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 - 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 energy efficient is the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

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

Would choosing the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

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+ 33 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

If the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 boiler may be worth considering.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi boiler a suitable option 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+ 33 combi boiler has an output of 28 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers, you need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate. The flow rate (shown in litres per minute) measures how much water your boiler can draw from the mains which it then instantly heats and distributes to your taps and radiators.

However, a high flow rate is of little to no value if your local water pressure is low. If your local mains water pressure is 10l/m and your flow rate is 12l/m, your boiler will only be able to process 10l/m.

If you live in an area with high water pressure but your household has multiple bathrooms and/or radiators and many members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening baths or showers), it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a combi with a high enough flow rate.

As an indication, a power shower needs about 10 litres of water per minute, whereas the flow rate of this Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 Combi boiler is 14 L/ml/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 dimensions

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 occupies a space of 700 mm high by 390 mm wide and 295 mm deep.

Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Does the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi protect the environment?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 was given an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 scores "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue+ 33 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
