Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 is certainly one to consider.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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 Combipac C26 combi boiler has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


How large is a Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 has the following dimensions - 945 mm high, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

If you would like to reduce the space your boiler takes up in your home or you don't like the noise of an internal oil heater, you may want to consider the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 - an external combi boiler which is fitted outside your property.

Supplied in sturdy weatherproof housing designed to resist rusting and water ingress, an external boiler is much easier for a service engineer to work on if there is a fault or it needs repairing. External boilers also reduce the risk of carbon monoxide leakages inside your home.

Is this Firebird boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 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.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 Combipac C26 is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi boiler is 26 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 boiler?

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 boiler is 945 mm high, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

An external, floor-standing combi boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 frees up valuable space in your home and is easier for an engineer to access when it needs servicing or repair.

They benefit from solid and reliable waterproof housing which protect them from the worst of the British climate as well as from water ingress and rusting.

Internal oil boilers can leak and damage your property. An external boiler limits both the potential for damage as well as the unpleasant odours which result after a leak.

Envirogreen Combipac C26 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Combipac C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and it applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How long is the warranty period on a Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 combi boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Combipac C26 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
