Baxi Bermuda Condensing Back Boiler Unit by James Millard
When the First Baxi Bermuda back boiler unit (BBU) was launched in 1966, it was so practical and reliable that just over 80% of the market was a Baxi installation. The name grew quickly and became well known with back boiler expertise. However since Part L of the Building Regulations changed in 2005, replacing old BBUs with condensing wall mounted boilers had become a complicated and expensive business. Boilers had to be re-sited, pipes re-routed and whole walls redecorated.
This all changed since the new innovative condensing Bermuda BBU from Baxi was launched. It is currently the only way to replace a back boiler as it complies with current legislation and is the only high efficiency BBU on the market to serve as a direct replacement. If you combine this with an attractive, reliable and highly efficient fire from Valor, you've got the whole package, a convenient, one-supplier solution offering complete start to finish boiler and fire installation.
Replacing one back boiler with another has its obvious advantages, the main one being that the existing pipe work can be used. This allows the entire system, including the fire, to be replaced in a single day, causing minimal disruption. Because it has SEDBUK Band A-rated efficiency, it also means reduced energy bills and carbon footprint.
The fully-sealed, one-piece flue will allow for easy installation with no joints to inspect within the chimney. The electrical fire front also offers easy access to the boiler controls and with LED illumination technology, the fire effect-only mode costs less than £6 per year to run.
