Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 9 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Is a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher electric bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow is 9 kW, so which types of property is this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What are the dimensions of the Ferroli LEB 9 boiler?

The Ferroli LEB 9 is 740 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 265 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 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 9 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 9 electric Flow environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to 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.

If you decide to install a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Ferroli LEB 9 was given an efficiency rating of 99.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The ERP ratings of this Ferroli LEB 9 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 9 is "TBC".

Does the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler come with a warranty?

The Ferroli LEB 9 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Ferroli’s LEB 9 - system, regular or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Ferroli LEB 9 if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 electric 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 LEB 9 electric Flow is 9 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


Making space for the Ferroli LEB 9

The Ferroli LEB 9 occupies a space of 740 mm high by 440 mm wide and 265 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Gas and oil boilers require a flue to siphon off exhaust gases created from the burning of the fuel they use. A "condensing" boiler reuses the warmth present in those gases for better efficiency to reheat colder water coming back from your radiators. Electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 9 do not have a flue because they don't actually burn any fuel during their operation - they are naturally efficient and do not need any modification to achieve that efficiency.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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

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.

Would choosing a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Ferroli LEB 9 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.5% equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "D".

The boiler's poor ERP rating reflects the fact that it runs on electricity.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle – from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Ferroli LEB 9 has been awarded a grading of "TBC" by assessors.

Some electric boilers receive low energy efficiency scores since the electricity used to power them is generated by fossil fuels – considered carbon-intensive – and this is factored into the final rating. This is despite the fact that the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is either 98% or 99% – better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

Is this Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow covered by a warranty?

The Ferroli LEB 9 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
