Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 a system, regular or combi boiler?

If you want a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house, the Ferroli LEB 6 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is a Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow 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 electric than you need to.

The output of the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler is 6 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ferroli LEB 6 dimensions

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

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 6 don't need to be "condensing", unlike gas and oil boilers. That's because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers do not burn any fuel which creates still-warm exhaust gases that condensing boilers then use to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from your radiators. They are, by design, more efficient in operation than non-electric boilers and they're not covered by the 2005 law requiring all boilers to be "condensing".

How energy efficient is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing to install a Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured for the UK market since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% - 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

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

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP rating for being powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

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

How can it be so low? The use of fossil fuels in generating the electricity that powers the boiler is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the ERP scores of electric boilers. This is, in our opinion, unfair because the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

How long is the warranty period on the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler?

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

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 6 is a electric electric Flow boiler.

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 the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the electric your boiler needs to work.

The Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 6 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow LEB would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Ferroli LEB 6 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 6 are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Gas and oil boilers burn fuel to heat the water you need for your home - electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 6 do not. Condensing non-electric boilers create exhaust gases which they then recycle to heat the water coming back through your pipes to your radiator, among other tasks, for greater efficiency. Because electric boilers do not create these gases when operating, they do not need the secondary heat exchanger found in condensing boilers.

Is the Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ferroli LEB 6 electric Flow in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency is/was measured at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Ferroli LEB 6 has an efficiency rating of 99.5% with a SEDBUK grade of "D".

The ERP ratings of this Ferroli LEB 6 Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it is powered by electricity.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in use.

As fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers, some receive low ERP scores because electricity generation is carbon-intensive. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

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

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

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ferroli LEB 6 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
