Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C - regular, system or combi?

When looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C might be a suitable option for you.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 24 kW?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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.


The size of the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C in millimetres

The Ferroli Bluehelix 28C occupies a space of 700 mm high by 420 mm wide and 250 mm deep.

Bluehelix 28C – condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C - 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.

How does the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi boiler rate environmentally?

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.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a 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 28C 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 28C are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

What is the warranty period for the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ferroli Ferroli Bluehelix 28C boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.

Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Bluehelix 28C - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Should I choose a Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi boiler 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 28C combi's output at 24 kW, which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Ferroli Bluehelix 28C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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 28C

The Ferroli Bluehelix 28C boiler measures 700 mm [H] x 420 mm [W] x 250 mm [D] in size.

Ferroli Bluehelix 28C – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C 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 the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ferroli Bluehelix 28C combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 28C was awarded an efficiency rating of 94%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

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

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

What is the warranty period for the Ferroli Bluehelix 28C?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 28C is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years following installation.
