Ferroli Energy Top W80 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Energy Top W80 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Ferroli Energy Top W80 is certainly one to consider.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Would the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi is 75 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ferroli Energy Top W80 Combi boiler's flow rate is 8 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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.

Energy Top W80 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ferroli Energy Top W80 - 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.

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi boiler good for the environment?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

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

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 Energy Top W80 scored an efficiency rating of 98% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

Ferroli Energy Top W80 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli Energy Top W80 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Ferroli Energy Top W80 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi boiler has an output level of 75 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Ferroli Energy Top W80 Combi boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

Homeowners considering fitting a combi boiler to their home need to consider flow rates as well as output rates.

The flow rate is a measurement of the volume of water a combi can instantly heat and send to the taps and radiators around your home. The higher the likely demand for hot water in your home, the higher your combi's flow rate should be. This Ferroli Energy Top W80 Combi boiler's flow rate is 8 L/m.

Unlike heat only or system boilers, combi boilers don't store hot water in a tank for later use - instead, they draw it directly from the mains. This means that the volume of water your boiler can actually process is constrained by the flow rate of water in the mains pipe.

So, if you choose a combi boiler with a 15l/m flow rate but the flow rate in your mains pipe is 12l/m, the combi boiler's working flow rate is also 12l/m.

Combi boilers are also not always the correct choice for homes with multiple bathrooms, a high number of radiators, or where more than one family member will want to use hot water at the same time.

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 W80?

The Ferroli Energy Top W80 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ferroli Energy Top W80 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ferroli Energy Top W80 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 Energy Top W80 combi environmentally friendly?

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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Ferroli Energy Top W80 combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Ferroli Energy Top W80 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 98% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Ferroli Energy Top W80?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ferroli Energy Top W80 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
