Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi is 30 kW, so which types of property is this Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi boiler appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
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.


How large is a Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C is 700 mm tall, 420 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Ferroli Bluehelix 34C – non-condensing or condensing?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C 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.

How does the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi rate environmentally?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would installing a Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating 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 34C are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Am I covered if my Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi boiler breaks down?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler comes with a 10 year warranty for parts and labour.

Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Bluehelix 34C - a regular, combi or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi 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 34C combi is 30 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You should also consider a combi boiler's "flow rate" when making your choice.

The flow rate indicates how much water it can take from the mains supply at any one time (measured in litres per minute), which it then heats and distributes to different points in your home like your bathroom, kitchen and radiators. This Ferroli Bluehelix 34C Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

Combi boilers have no storage tanks like system or heat only boilers. This means that if the water pressure where you live is low, there's no benefit in spending money on a combi with a high flow rate because a high flow rate doesn't mean it can draw any more water from the mains.

In addition, there might be lots of people in your household who want to use hot water at the same time while also having the central heating on. Given that average mains pressure in the UK is between 10 and 12 litres per second and a power shower usually requires about 12 litres of water per minute, a combi boiler might not be the right choice for you and your family.

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.


What are the dimensions of the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler?

The size of the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler is 700 mm high, 420 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C 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 34C combi an energy-efficient boiler?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

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 34C was awarded an efficiency rating of 94%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

This European legislation intends to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli Bluehelix 34C is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does a Ferroli Bluehelix 34C combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Ferroli Bluehelix 34C boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 10 years after installation.
