Firebird Envirogreen 44 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler in my house or flat?

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

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen 44 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen 44?

Firebird’s Envirogreen 44 is 844 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

There are hundreds of thousands of properties whose central heating systems are powered by floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 44. If you're considering switching from your current floor-standing to a new wall-mounted model to free up space inside your home for you and your family, we can do this work for you. However, when you change the type of boiler in your home, please bear in mind that we often need to replace the piping at extra cost.

However, given the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills as a result of switching, you should be able to recoup your investment in full within a few years.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Firebird Envirogreen 44.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system considered environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 44 is rated as 93.8% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

Will I be covered if the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Firebird Envirogreen 44 System boiler covers you for 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen 44 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen 44 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Firebird Envirogreen 44.

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.

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

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen 44 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Firebird Envirogreen 44 system outputs at a maximum of 44 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen 44 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Firebird Envirogreen 44?

The Firebird Envirogreen 44's dimensions are 844 mm [H] x 442 mm [W] x 610 mm [D].

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen 44 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 44 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen 44 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system considered environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen 44 are 93.8% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen 44 system boiler if it breaks down?

On the Firebird Envirogreen 44, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
