Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 - standard, combi or system?

Baxi’s EcoBlue Advance 28 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler has an output level of 28 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler is appropriate for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
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.


The size of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 is 763 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 345 mm deep in size.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi a good choice for the environment?

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.

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.

Will choosing to install a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

What is the length of the warranty on the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler has an output level of 28 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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.


What are the dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler measures 763 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 345 mm [D] in size.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 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 Advance 28 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 Advance 28 combi a good choice for the environment?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

Will installing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28, the ERP Heat rating is "A" and the ERP Water rating is "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28?

Baxi’s EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
