Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 is a gas combi boiler.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Would the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi be a suitable boiler 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?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.

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.


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

The dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 are 763 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 345 mm [D].

Is this Baxi boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

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

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.

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.

Would installing the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

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

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

If the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

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 combi, system or regular boiler?

When looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 might be a suitable option for you.

Combi boilers are excellent for providing hot water and heat for your radiators just when you need it. When you have a combi boiler installed in your home, you just turn on the tap and the hot water for your bath, shower, washing dishes and other activities is there when you need it. It also provides the heat you need to keep your radiators warm.

A combi boiler heats the cold water passing through it, which it draws from the mains. This newly heated water can then be distributed to whichever hot tap or radiator needs it.

In the past, boilers needed at least one storage tank to hold water that was either already heated or would be heated later. Sometimes, you'd have to wait for hot water because there was none left. In addition, storage tanks took up a lot of space and most UK homes are pretty small.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time, meaning the pressure, volume and temperature of water will decrease if more than one tap is on at the same time or if both the shower and washing machine are on together.

Should I install a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler in my home?

Whether this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi 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 Advance 28 combi boiler is 28 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

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 measures 763 mm in height by 450 mm in width by 345 mm in depth.

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

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi protect 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.

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.

If you decide to install a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at 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) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28.

Does a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 28 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 10 years.
