Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system's output at 20 kW, which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S in millimetres

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

Is this Ferroli boiler non-condensing or 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 boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

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 24S system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

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

Will I be covered if the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 10 years is included when you purchase the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler through PlumbProud.

Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

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

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Ferroli Bluehelix 24S System boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Ferroli Bluehelix 24S dimensions

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S measures 700 mm tall, 420 mm wide, and 250 mm deep.

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

Condensing gas boilers like the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system good for the environment?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will choosing a Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading 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.

Will I be covered if the Ferroli Bluehelix 24S system breaks down?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 24S boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
