Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S is one you may wish to consider.

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.

Would the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System boiler is right for where you live 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 of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system is 30 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler

The size of the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler is 700 mm tall, 420 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Does the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system protect the environment?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

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?

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S scored an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and it applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Am I covered if my Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler breaks down?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S may be an option you should consider.

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.

Would the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S 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 30S system boiler has an output rate of 30 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ferroli Bluehelix 30S System boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S in millimetres

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

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

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will choosing a Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S was rated at 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 30S is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

If the Ferroli Bluehelix 30S system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Ferroli’s Bluehelix 30S boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
