A back boiler unit (BBU) is a boiler that is built in behind an electric or gas fireplace and provides hot water and central heating in homes.
Back boilers were incredibly popular during the 1970s and 1980s when conventional boilers were closer in size to a washing machine and much more difficult to install. Baxi launched the iconic Bermuda boiler in 1966 which went on to sell over 2 million units before being discontinued in 2015. Baxi no longer manufacture back boilers.
