Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 - standard, combi or system?

Baxi’s EcoBlue Advance 16 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only outputs at a maximum of 16 kW, so which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 dimensions

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

EcoBlue Advance 16 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 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.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

Would choosing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Advance 16 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.

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 Advance 16 has a rating of "A".

Am I covered if my Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 fit into?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is one you may wish to consider.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only's output at 16 kW, which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler 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 Advance 16 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 in millimetres

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is 625 mm [H] by 370 mm [W] by 270 mm [D] in size.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 condensing or non-condensing?

This Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

How does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Will choosing to install a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 scored an efficiency rating of 89.2% and a SEDBUK band rating of B.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16, the ERP rating is "A".

If the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years on the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler to new customers.
