Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Would the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler has an output rate of 20 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Making space for the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S's dimensions are 700 mm [H] x 420 mm [W] x 250 mm [D].

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

We recommend the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S 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 the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system considered 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.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

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

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 24S was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

What length of warranty does the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ferroli Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.

Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Ferroli’s Bluehelix 24S - system, regular or combi?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler has an output rate of 20 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Making space for the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S

The measurements of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S are 700 mm by 420 mm by 250 mm.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is choosing the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period on a Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ferroli Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.
