Firebird Envirogreen 26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 is a oil system boiler.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen 26 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Firebird Envirogreen 26 System boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen 26 dimensions

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 measures 844 mm in height by 442 mm in width by 610 mm in depth.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 26 despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Firebird Envirogreen 26 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the system Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler energy efficient?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen 26 is "A".

Is this Firebird Envirogreen 26 system covered by a warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Firebird Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Firebird Envirogreen 26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen 26 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 system has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen 26 System boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system Envirogreen would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen 26 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 measures 844 mm high and 442 mm wide by a depth of 610 mm.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the system Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler energy efficient?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen 26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Firebird Envirogreen 26, the ERP rating is "A".

Does the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler come with a warranty?

Firebird offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Firebird Envirogreen 26.
