Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ferroli Energy Top W60?

The Ferroli Energy Top W60 is a gas combi boiler.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Energy Top W60 combi's output at 65 kW, which types of property would this Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate when making your decision.

Like all combi boilers, the Ferroli Energy Top W60 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on. This Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler's flow rate is 7 L/m.

There is no benefit to purchasing a boiler with a high flow rate if the local water pressure is not that good - a high flow rate doesn't mean that your combi can draw more water from the mains.

In addition, if you live in a home with a large number of radiators and more than one bathroom and if more than one person regularly wants to use hot water at a time, a combi boiler may struggle to provide enough water at a hot enough temperature.

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 Energy Top W60 boiler?

The Ferroli Energy Top W60 occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is this Ferroli boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Energy Top W60.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

How does the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler rate environmentally?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would choosing the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Ferroli Energy Top W60 are 98% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Am I covered if my Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Ferroli Energy Top W60 boiler through PlumbProud.

Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W60 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Ferroli Energy Top W60 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Is a Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler is 65 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler's flow rate is 7 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Ferroli Energy Top W60 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

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 the Ferroli Energy Top W60?

The Ferroli Energy Top W60 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W60 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Ferroli Energy Top gas Ferroli Energy Top W60 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the combi Ferroli Energy Top W60 boiler energy efficient?

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

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.

Would installing the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely 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 Energy Top W60 was given an efficiency rating of 98% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Does the Ferroli Energy Top W60 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Ferroli Energy Top W60 Combi boiler covers you for 2 years.
