Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ferroli LEB 9 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is a Ferroli LEB 9 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 9 electric Flow's output level is 9 kW, so which types of property would this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Ferroli LEB 9 in millimetres

The size of the Ferroli LEB 9 boiler is 740 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 265 mm deep.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 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 9 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.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

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 choosing a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (SEDBUK score of "A"). This is higher than the 88% that was the legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working normally - its standard functioning and operation.

The Ferroli LEB 9 is rated as 99.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "D" SEDBUK rating.

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 9 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.

Will I be covered if the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow breaks down?

The Ferroli LEB 9 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

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 many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce electric usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

Is the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher electric bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper electric bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

A heating engineer would recommend that the Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Ferroli LEB 9 have?

The Ferroli LEB 9's dimensions are 740 mm [H] x 440 mm [W] x 265 mm [D].

LEB 9 – non-condensing or condensing?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the Ferroli LEB 9 do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

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

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.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Ferroli LEB 9 electric Flow would be a good choice for the environment.

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 9 scored an efficiency rating of 99.5% and a SEDBUK band rating of D.

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

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products that require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

Because electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, this is factored into the scores of some ERP electric boilers - unfairly. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level.

The ERP rating for the Ferroli LEB 9 is "TBC".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ferroli LEB 9 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Ferroli LEB 9 Electric Flow boiler covers you for 2 years.
