What is a back boiler?

WarmA Homes 2

A back boiler is a heating appliance that is fitted behind a fireplace or stove. Essentially, it is a small, compact boiler that is designed to provide hot water and central heating to a property. The back boiler is connected to the stove or fireplace, and the heat produced by the fire is used to heat water, which is then circulated through the central heating system and hot taps.

Back boilers were commonly used in the UK during the 1960s and 1970s, and many properties built during this time still have them installed. While they are not as popular as they once were, they are still a viable option for some homeowners, particularly those who value the traditional look and feel of a fireplace or stove.

How Much Does A Replacement Back Boiler Cost?

WarmA Homes 1

What Is A Baxi Bermuda Back Boiler?

Cold Weather Payment 4

Back boilers (also known as back boiler units or BBUs) are an old type of gas boiler which was fitted to many houses in the 1960s -1980s to provide hot water and heating.

Back boilers are usually  a small, compact boiler that is fitted at the back of an open fireplace hearth behind a gas fire

The market leader was a  Bermuda back boiler open-flued heating system was launched in 1966 and is still in operation 50 years later.

Backboilers were designed to fit behind a living room fireplace in order to save space.

They are called back boilers because they are mounted as a back boiler fireplace or a back boiler stove and use the heat from the fire to provide central heating and domestic hot water.

They are considered outdated and inefficient but are still found in 5 % of UK homes. The 2005 Building Regulations state that installing a back boiler is illegal in the UK.

Bermuda’s backboilers are now very outdated and they are no longer manufactured.

They have been updated with many different and more fashionable fire fronts in the last  30 years or so that followed.

Are Baxi Bermuda Back boilers any good?

Warm Air Heating System

Bermuda Baxi boilers have always been very reliable and have received some incredible feedback on the platform over the years

The average rating of Baxi’s reviews was 4.5 (almost as good as Worcester, but not quite!), a clear indicator of their products quality and the aftercare offered by their team.

In their day Bermua Backboilers were an excellent choice of heating for homes. They were much cheaper than relying on expensive electric heating and were fitted to the majority of Uk homes that had a gas supply.

Back boilers in the 20th century  are outdated and in some cases dangerous.

They also run at much lower efficiencies than modern condensing boilers.


How Do I Find The Model Of My Back boiler?

To find what type of back boiler you have, simply pull down the flap underneath the boiler.

There will label or small sticker stating the make and model number.

If you have a Baxi Bermuda, you will struggle to find any spare parts and replacing it before it goes belly up should be considered.


How Does a Back Boiler Work

oil 6

Gas fire back boilers operate by using the heat generated from the open fire in the fireplace or stove to heat water for your central heating and hot water use.

The boiler itself sits behind a fireplace or stove and is connected to a hot water cylinder. The water is heated up by the back boiler and is stored in the hot water cylinder, to be sent to your taps and shower. The boiler will also heat water in a coil to send around the radiators.


How To Check If You Have A Back Boiler?

If your boiler is housed behind your gas or electric fireplace, you can be assured that  it is a back boiler.

A backboilers flue will be housed in the chimney, which means if you have a new boiler installed, you will require a new flue system as you cannot reuse an old flue

The BAXI Bermuda back boiler  dominated the back boiler market in the 60s and this is the model that will usually be in use today.

Coal open fire back boiler

WarmA Homes 6

This type of open fire back boiler uses solid coal fuel to heat up hot water which is sent to your hot taps and central heating system.

There aren’t that many of this type of back boiler about anymore and coal isn’t the cleanest fuel to burn.

They are also very messy and take up lots of upkeep.

If your coal first or back boiler breaks then you will also not be able to replace it with another.

If coal back boiler with a boiler behind it you could save yourself lots of money by investing in a new A-rated combi boiler and converting your heating system.

What Different types of Back boilers Are In Homes?

WarmA Homes 4

A back boiler is usually attached to a copper cylinder full of water which is heated up using some sort of fuel. Usual fuel types will be solid fuel – gas.

The gas-fired back boiler such as the Baxi Bermuda was a revolutionary boiler back when it first came out and was installed in many homes in the UK.

These gas back boilers were then energy-efficient and a cheaper way of heating your home.

Now though with the advancement in technology and the introduction of condensing gas boilers, these are nowhere near as energy-efficient and could be costing you up to £700 more per year to run.

Are Back Boilers Still Legal?

Conventional Back Boilers Can Still Be Fitted Legally.

Building Regulations do still allow for conventional back-boilers (ie gas fires with boilers, fitted in fireplaces) to be replaced like-for-like in situations where it would be difficult to fit a new condensing boiler against an outside wall.

Back boilers were very popular in the 60s and 70s but are gradually being phased out in favour of combis. Baxi Bermuda -Parkray and Rayburn boilers were the main names with this type of heating.

The open fire would heat the water in a tank behind the fire and this heated water would rise into a cylinder connected to it upstairs which would be used by the home occupants for washing etc.

It is very difficult now to replace a back boiler with a similar type as back boilers are no longer manufactured apart from the Baxi Bermuda Condensing Boiler.

PLEASE NOTE FOR SAFETY  – If you do upgrade to a combi boiler , we recommend that the old disused back boiler ( in situ behind the fireplace ) should still be removed .

How Efficient Is a Back Boiler?

WarmA Homes 1

An old back boiler usually is around 60 -70% efficient which compared to modern condensing boilers which are  92-94% energy efficient.

Back boiler fire systems are now replaced by a condensing boiler or the new heat pumps which will be over 90% efficient.

In real terms, for every £1 of gas that is burned, you are only getting the benefit of 70p worth of useable heat and the other 30p worth is being lost up the chimney.

By replacing it with a new boiler  you can reduce your fuel bill by up to £305 per year.

Are Back Boilers Safe

There is no reason why they should be unsafe if they have been services yearly and thoroughly checked by a qualified gas safe engineer.

If you have an old back boiler behind the fire that has been decommissioned, we would recommend that you pay an engineer to inspect that it has been put out of service safely.

How Long Do Baxi Back Boilers Last

Old Age 5

Back boilers usually last for around 25 years, provided they have been well maintained and serviced regularly.

Some backboilers, particularly the Baxi Bermuda have been know to last over 40 years as they were well made in the 60s.

Indeed there are still many backboilers  in the Uk that are still going to this day, albeit they wont be very efficient and will be up to a third more expensive to run.

If your old Baxi Bermuda  is on its last legs you should bite the bullet and have it replaced with a combi.

The chances are that it has had a good innings and needs to go to the back boiler heaven in the sky.

Dont forget that there are Back Boiler Removal Grants Available Too to replace them at no cost.

Can You Sell A House With A Back Boiler?

WarmA Homes 8
You can sell your house with a backboiler fitted as they are not illegal but it will make your home a lot harder to sell.
A new boiler will always be a good selling point.

When did back boilers cease to be fitted in homes?

In 2005 Building Regulations requirements changed and backboilers were no longer allowed to be fitted in new build houses.

This was down to backboilers having very poor efficiency and safety issues.

Are Back Boilers Still Available To Buy?

WarmA Homes 6

Yes  The Baxi Bermuda BBU HE Boiler is a fully condensing back boiler which has been designed for homeowners looking to replace their old back boiler with a more efficient system.

UK government regulations state that  all boiler systems must have a minimum of 86% efficiency, so most models of back boilers are no longer manufactured .

WarmA Homes 11

As long as your property is a minimum Energy Performance Certificate rating of E , you are still allowed to rent out homes with a back boiler fitted.

If Below E it will be your obligation to upgrade this for your tenant, or before you let out the property to new tenants.

A gas Safe Cert will also be required

Can a back boiler explode?

If a fire is lit in front of a redundant back boiler that has been left in a sealed condition, it can heat up and the internal pressure can cause the boiler casing to explode.

We recommend that when a back boiler is decommissioned ,  the whole system should be drained and all redundant pipework removed.

All properly decommissioned back boilers must be fitted with a safety valve to regulate pressure build up.

The back boiler if possible should be removed too.

Should you replace a 20 year old back boiler?

WarmA Homes 7

A central heating system using a backboiler behind the fire that is over  20 years old is likely to be made significantly cheaper to run by replacing with a condensing boiler.

You will probably save over £200 per year by replacing it.

Good idea to see if you are eligible for a grant.

Back Boiler Removal - What Is The Process?

It’s likely that a back boiler removal will take quite a bit of work as it is positioned behind your fireplace.

Typically, the process will include:

  • Removing the fireplace
  • Removing the back boiler system
  • Reconstruction of the mantle space
  • Installation of the combi boiler system in an alternative location
  • New pipework installed to fit with new combi boiler
  • Work to be done on the flue system to suit the combi boiler (the back boiler would have used the chimney).

Remove Back Boiler- Does It Take long?

warm front grants 2

You should allow a full day and an engineer will charge you his day rate plus any extras needed

We do not recommend removing your back boiler by yourself unless you really know what you are doing.

Disconnect your backboiler from the gas supply and water supply by capping off both.

  • Make a hole into the back boiler to make it waterless.
  • Cut the pipes connected to the cylinders or tanks.

How Long Does A Back Boiler Conversion Take?

Winter Fuel Payment

Back boilers are often the most difficult system upgrades to install.

Given their location (behind your gas fire), they aren’t easy to remove and the removal is often quite a difficult job and usually quite expensive. It can be quite a messy job as it can involve the removal of the fireplace and the area around the fire to be able to remove it.

In some cases, the back boiler can be decommissioned and left where it is so the disruption is minimised.

 Back Boiler Conversion Cost

warm front grants 2

You can expect to pay £3000 -£4000

This is for replacing an old back boiler with a combi boiler.

The new boiler will be put on an outside wall usually in the kitchen or bathroom and new pipe work installed including a gas supply and distribution of hot and cold supplies.

This is a large job and can take around 2 days to complete.

How To Remove a Back Boiler

We recommend you do not do this yourself and employ the services of a Gas safe Registered Engineer.

Have two to three empty buckets to hand as dirty water coming out of the boiler can damage your flooring and carpets

  1. Remove carpets and all the unnecessary things from the room.
  2.  Dust and pieces of brick will be flying around and it would be best to protect your furniture.
  3. You can place old rugs over the floor to prevent scratching.
  4. Have one spare bucket to collect pipework waste in.
  5. Engineers will have to uproot the pipework and there will be a lot of dirty water and limescale present.
