Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is certainly one to consider.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler suitable 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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler is 16 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating 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.


The dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 are

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

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

How environmentally friendly is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only in your home be positive? 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 Advance 16 has an efficiency rating of 89.2% with a SEDBUK grade of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 has an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only boiler come with?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only is 16 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only 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.


What are the proportions of a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler?

The size of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler is 625 mm high, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue Advance gas Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How energy efficient is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 89.2% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 is "A".

Will I be covered if the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 heat only breaks down?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 16 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.
