Firebird Envirogreen 20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Firebird Envirogreen 20 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Firebird Envirogreen 20 for your house or flat if you are looking for a system boiler.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen 20 System 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 oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system is 20 kW, so which types of property is this Firebird Envirogreen 20 System boiler appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen 20 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.


Firebird Envirogreen 20 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 occupies a space of 844 mm high by 442 mm wide and 610 mm deep.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen 20 for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 20 non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the system Firebird Envirogreen 20 boiler energy efficient?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen 20 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends 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 Firebird Envirogreen 20 is "A".

Does the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler come with a warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Firebird Firebird Envirogreen 20 boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Firebird Envirogreen 20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen 20 - system, regular or combi?

If you want a system boiler for your flat or house, the Firebird Envirogreen 20 might be an option for you to consider.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler in my home?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Firebird Envirogreen 20 System boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler has an output level of 20 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would say that this Firebird Envirogreen 20 System boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen 20 boiler?

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen 20 are 844 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 20. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is this Firebird boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler good for the environment?

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

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Envirogreen 20 is rated "A".

Does the Firebird Envirogreen 20 system boiler come with a warranty?

On the Firebird Envirogreen 20, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
