Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler appropriate 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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi's output level is 20 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With all combi boilers, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate when making your decision.

Like all combi boilers, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on. This Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

There is no benefit to purchasing a boiler with a high flow rate if the local water pressure is not that good - a high flow rate doesn't mean that your combi can draw more water from the mains.

In addition, if you live in a home with a large number of radiators and more than one bathroom and if more than one person regularly wants to use hot water at a time, a combi boiler may struggle to provide enough water at a hot enough temperature.

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.


Ferroli Bluehelix 24C - size in millimetres

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C has the following dimensions - 700 mm high, 420 mm wide, and 250 mm deep.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler good for the environment?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C has been assigned an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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 Ferroli Bluehelix 24C has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Am I covered if my Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler breaks down?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years following installation.

Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C - regular, system or combi?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi is 20 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With all combi boilers, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate when making your decision.

Like all combi boilers, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on. This Ferroli Bluehelix 24C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

There is no benefit to purchasing a boiler with a high flow rate if the local water pressure is not that good - a high flow rate doesn't mean that your combi can draw more water from the mains.

In addition, if you live in a home with a large number of radiators and more than one bathroom and if more than one person regularly wants to use hot water at a time, a combi boiler may struggle to provide enough water at a hot enough temperature.

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.


Making space for the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24C measures 700 mm in height by 420 mm in width by 250 mm in depth.

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

We recommend the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would installing a Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

What warranty does the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C combi boiler come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ferroli Bluehelix 24C covers all repair-related costs for 10 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
