Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S a standard, combi or system boiler?

If you want a system boiler for your flat or house, the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S might be an option for you to consider.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers require a hot water cylinder to work - the cylinder stores and keeps water warm for use throughout the day. Hot water can be distributed to multiple showers and taps simultaneously, making system boilers suitable for larger families and properties with more than one bathroom.

System boilers differ from standard boilers in that they do not require a cold water tank, making them suitable for properties with no loft space or if you are planning a loft conversion. As the boiler's major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and no water tank is required, system boilers are easier to install than regular boilers.

This type of boiler does not heat water instantly like a combi boiler - instead, you need to use the control panel to set the times when you want heating and hot water to be available for your home.

Is a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system the right boiler for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system's output at 30 kW, which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S is 700 mm [H] by 420 mm [W] by 320 mm [D] in size.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system 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 total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading 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 30S has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler?

On the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Bluehelix 30S - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Should I choose a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler for my house or flat?

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 30S system has an output of 30 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system Bluehelix would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S have?

Ferroli’s Bluehelix 30S is 700 mm tall, 420 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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 30S system an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

If the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 10 years with the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler.
