Firebird Envirogreen 44 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

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 44 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 44 system boiler has an output rate of 44 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen 44 System boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler measures 844 mm [H] x 442 mm [W] x 610 mm [D] in size.

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 44. 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 the Firebird Envirogreen 44 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 44 are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen 44 was given an efficiency rating of 93.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Does a Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler come with a warranty period?

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen 44 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Firebird Envirogreen 44 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler has an output of 44 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Firebird Envirogreen 44 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.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen 44 in millimetres

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler is 844 mm high, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 44. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 44 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system rate environmentally?

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.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would installing the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler breaks down?

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.
