Ferroli are a well known gas boiler manufacturer and now they offer electric boilers in the form of their LEB range. This is the LEB 6.0 TS model which has an output rating of 6 kW, perfectly suitable for small homes and flats.
Why choose an electric boiler?
Burning fossil fuels to heat our homes isn’t sustainable and with supplies of natural gas and oil expected to run out in the next 40 years, an alternative needs to be found. Electric heating is one option and there’s a number of reasons why: zero emissions, no risk of a carbon monoxide leak into the home, quick response to the central heating going on, flexible installation and fewer moving parts which reduces the risk of a fault.
How efficient is a Ferroli LEB?
These are highly efficient electric boilers, as shown by the efficiency rating of 99.5%. Electric boiler efficiency can get quite confusing as despite the high efficiency, they only have an ErP D-rating. This is because electricity production is considered carbon intensive as most is produced through the burning of fossil fuels.
Where can electric boilers be installed?
As there’s no need for a flue or condensate pipe, electric boilers have great flexibility with where they can be installed. Gas boilers, on the other hand, must be installed onto an external wall. Compact dimensions of 740 x 440 x 265 mm (HxWxD) and a low weight of 29.5kg mean that it won’t take up too much space either.
Is an electric boiler right for my home?
Electric boilers are best suited to smaller homes and with an output rating of 6 kW, the Ferroli LEB 6.0 TS is perfect for homes with 4 radiators and a single bathroom.
Does the Ferroli LEB range include any alternative options?
As well as this 6 kW model, the Ferroli LEB range also includes a 7.5 kW model (5 radiators), a 9 kW model (6 radiators) and a 12kW boiler (8 radiators).
What are the key features of the Fusion Comet electric boiler?
The Ferroli LEB has a number of key features that can benefit your home, including 6-stage modulation to reduce energy waste, anti-frost function, almost silent during operation, can be used with radiators and underfloor heating, suitable for use with a domestic hot water tank and comes fitted with a high efficiency pump.
How long is the warranty period?
Electric boilers in the LEB TS range come with a 2 year warranty as standard which will see you’re well covered by manufacturer Ferroli.
