Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ferroli LEB 6?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler is worth considering if you want a electric Flow boiler.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher electric bills.

Which types of property would this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 6 kW?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Ferroli LEB 6 fit in my house?

The Ferroli LEB 6 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Ferroli LEB 6 – condensing or non-condensing?

Electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 6 don't need to be modified to be "condensing" boilers because they operate differently to gas and electric boilers. Condensing non-electric boilers recycle the exhaust gases created as part of their operation to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from radiators. Electric boilers do not create exhaust gases and are, by design, more efficient and economical to run.

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow 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.

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.

Will installing a Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for all boilers manufactured in and supplied to the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Ferroli LEB 6 was given an energy efficiency rating of 99.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

ERP assessors are however not keen that the boiler is powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation intended to reduce energy consumption related to products, from the initial manufacturing process right through to their eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli LEB 6 is "TBC".

Why is it so low? It's because it uses electricity - this is considered carbon-intensive since fossil fuels are burned in its generation. Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% so we feel this is a misleading comparison that unfairly reflects the actual performance of electric boilers.

How many years' warranty does the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow come with?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Ferroli LEB 6 boiler to new customers.

Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli LEB 6 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

When looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Ferroli LEB 6 might be a suitable option for you.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

Is a Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow's output level is 6 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 6 boiler?

The dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 6 are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 condensing or non-condensing?

As a large proportion of the greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere come from people's homes, the Government passed a law in 2005 requiring all manufacturers to make gas and oil boilers "condensing". What this means is that they must include a secondary heat exchanger, which recycles the warmth contained in exhaust gases normally expelled via the flue so that they're more efficient. Because electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 6 don't actually burn any fuel, there are no exhaust gases to recycle and they are exempt from the requirement to include a secondary heat exchange.

How energy efficient is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating for boilers describes the amount of energy they use and waste 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% = "A" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "B" SEDBUK rating).

The Ferroli LEB 6 scored an efficiency rating of 99.5% and a SEDBUK band rating of D.

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP ratings for using electricity for power.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

Electricity generation currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is carbon-intensive. This is factored into the ERP scores of many electric boilers, although virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli LEB 6 is "TBC".

What is the length of the warranty on the Ferroli LEB 6?

The Ferroli LEB 6 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
