Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 - standard, combi or system?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 is a gas combi boiler.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

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

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 40 combi is 40 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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 dimensions does a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 have?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 is 763 mm high by 450 mm wide by 345 mm deep.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40.

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 40 combi environmentally friendly?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Would installing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 40 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, right through to the point of final disposal.

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

If the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Baxi’s EcoBlue Advance 40 - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 may be an option you should consider.

Combi boilers have much to recommend them - not least the fact that they save a lot of space. Combination (or combi) boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to provide practical central heating and hot water distribution to smaller properties - remember that UK houses and flats tend to be among the smallest in the developed world.

Traditional boilers require one or more storage tanks to keep hot water warm and to store water for heating later. In contrast, combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a storage tank. The heated water is then distributed to your taps and radiators on demand.

While combi boilers are suitable choices for many properties, especially those without a loft, there is also a disadvantage in using them. Water is heated instantly and the volume of water that can be heated at any one time is limited. This can result in less water being sent to taps and showers if more than one is being used simultaneously. In these instances, the water pressure to both points will drop.

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 what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi is 40 kW, so which types of property would this model 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.


What size is a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 boiler?

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

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 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.

Is the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi good 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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 was given an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

This European legislation intends to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty period on a Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 combi boiler?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Baxi EcoBlue Advance 40 Combi boiler covers you for 10 years.
