Firebird Envirogreen 26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 - regular, system or combi?

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Firebird Envirogreen 26 System boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler measures 844 mm [H] x 442 mm [W] x 610 mm [D] in size.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 26 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Is this Firebird boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen 26.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

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

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a 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 correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 is rated as 92.6% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.

Firebird Envirogreen 26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

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

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

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

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Firebird Envirogreen 26 System boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 boiler?

The measurements of the Firebird Envirogreen 26 are 844 mm by 442 mm by 610 mm.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 26 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen 26 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Firebird Envirogreen 26 system be a suitable choice?

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen 26 was given a 92.6% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to 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 Firebird Envirogreen 26 has a rating of "A".

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

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