Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

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

This Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler has an output level of 12 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW have?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW has the following dimensions - 945 mm high, 620 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW don't take up space in the home (they're fitted outside) and it's almost impossible to hear them when in operation (unlike internal boilers). They're much easier for a service technician to access if something goes wrong and there's less chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

This Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler features weatherproof housing meaning a minimal risk of rusting and water ingress. In addition, as the boiler is outside your home, there is a lower chance of oil leaking into your property, which can cause damage and difficult-to-remove odours.

Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac oil Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Heatpac 12-18kW is rated as 91.6% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW - system, regular or combi?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only is 12 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW size

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW measures 945 mm in height and has a width of 620 mm and a depth of 625 mm.

With a floor-standing external heat only boiler like the [manufacturer Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW, it is much easier for a service engineer to access it if something goes wrong and also much less likely that carbon monoxide will leak into your house.

Boilers like this one offer durable weatherproof housing meaning you can install it safely outdoors. And because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and unpleasant odours.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only?

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 Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only 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 Heatpac 12-18kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".
