Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ferroli LEB 7 a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the Ferroli LEB 7 may be an option you should 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.

Would the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler be suitable for 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.

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 7 electric Flow boiler is 7 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ferroli LEB 7 dimensions

The dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 7 are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Ferroli boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Previously, gas and oil boilers were pretty inefficient and, in 2005, a law was passed requiring that all new gas and oil boilers must be "condensing". Condensing boilers contain a secondary heat exchanger that uses the exhaust gases created by burning gas and oil to, for example, reheat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 7 do not burn fuel in the home, they do not need this modification.

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

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Until April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during normal operation.

The energy efficiency rating of the Ferroli LEB 7 is 99.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

But because it's powered by electricity, it is penalised in its ERP ratings.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) aims to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

This Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler’s ERP rating is particularly low despite the fact that the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers like these is generally 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler. The reason it's marked down is that the electricity needed to power the boiler is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive - we're not sure that's a fair comparison at PlumbProud.

How many years' warranty does the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ferroli LEB 7 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Ferroli LEB 7 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 7 is a electric Flow boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 LEB 7 electric Flow boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your electric than you need to.

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

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ferroli LEB 7 - size in millimetres

The Ferroli LEB 7 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

LEB 7 – condensing or non-condensing?

There is no legal requirement in the UK for electric boilers to be condensing as there is for gas and oil boilers. This is because electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 7 do not burn fuel during their operation nor do they create exhaust gases that condensing boilers then extract the warmth from, for example, to heat water coming back from the radiators in a home. Electric boilers are more efficient by design than non-electric boilers.

Is the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow an energy-efficient boiler?

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.

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 choosing the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured in the UK or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Ferroli LEB 7 has been awarded 99.5% for its energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "D" rating.

However, being powered by electricity means that the ERP ratings for this Ferroli LEB 7 Electric Flow boiler are lower.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases, with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli LEB 7 is TBC for heat and TBC for hot water production.

This may seem surprisingly low, especially since the actual operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level. The reason for this is that the electricity used by these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive - in our opinion, unfairly.

How long is the warranty period on the Ferroli LEB 7 electric Flow boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 7 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
