Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ferroli LEB 7?

The Ferroli LEB 7 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house.

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.

Should I install a Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Ferroli LEB 7 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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher electric bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 7 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Ferroli LEB 7

The Ferroli LEB 7 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is the Ferroli LEB 7 condensing or non-condensing?

For just over 15 years, all gas and oil boilers installed in the UK must by law be "condensing" boilers. This means that all non-electric boilers must use the warmth present in exhaust gases to, among other tasks, heat the cold water coming back from radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. Because electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 7 do not burn fuel or create exhaust gases, they do not need to be modified and are therefore exempt from the legislation passed in 2005.

Is the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Will choosing to install a Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Ferroli LEB 7 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 Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage the manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli LEB 7 is "TBC".

Many electric boilers are usually rated fairly low in ERP tests and unfairly so. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is actually around the 98-99% level in most cases. The reason they're marked down so severely is that the electricity used to power these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into their scores - not exactly a like-for-like comparison, in our opinion.

If the Ferroli LEB 7 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ferroli Ferroli LEB 7 boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ferroli LEB 7 fit into?

The Ferroli LEB 7 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Would the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your electric than you need to.

The Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler has an output of 7 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 7 boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 7 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Ferroli LEB 7 – non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 7 are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

How energy efficient is the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing a Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK after April 2018 must achieve an "A" grade on the SEDBUK rating system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Ferroli LEB 7 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.5% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

A penalty for being powered by electricity is reflected in the ERP ratings for this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler.

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Ferroli LEB 7 is rated "TBC" by ERP assessors.

On some models of electric boilers, ERP ratings are judged in a different and unfair way. Some electric boilers score very low because the electricity they draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels. This is despite the fact that electric boilers are nearly always more efficient than their gas and oil counterparts, at around the 98% to 99% mark, in most cases.

What is the warranty period on a Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 7 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.
