Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 fit into?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler may be worth considering.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 40 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more 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 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 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.


Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 size

The dimensions of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 are 763 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 345 mm [D].

EcoBlue Advance 40 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is choosing the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use, right through to final disposal.

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years' warranty does the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi come with?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 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 40 combi boiler is 40 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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 Advance 40 size

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler is 763 mm high, 450 mm wide, and 345 mm deep.

EcoBlue Advance 40 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi would be a good choice for the environment.

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 40 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 40, the ERP Heat rating is "A" and the ERP Water rating is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler?

On the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
