Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C - standard, combi or system?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Would the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler is 20 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

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 are the proportions of a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C boiler?

The dimensions of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C are 700 mm tall, 420 mm wide, and 250 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is choosing the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

If the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Bluehelix 24C - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler right 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 Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 20 kW?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your home, you need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate.

The flow rate is the volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can instantly heat up and send around the home. The more demand in your home for water at the same time (for example, two people taking showers in different bathrooms), the higher the flow rate you'll need.

However, the actual flow rate your boiler can deliver is also determined by your mains water pressure. If you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 16l/m but the mains water pressure is 12l/m, your boiler will only perform to 12l/m. This Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

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 Ferroli Bluehelix 24C have?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is 700 mm high by 420 mm wide by 250 mm deep.

Ferroli Bluehelix 24C – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

How does the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi rate environmentally?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

The energy efficiency rating of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

If the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 10 years with the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C boiler.
