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

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW is a oil heat only boiler.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only 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 Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler is 12 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW size

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW boiler is 945 mm tall, 620 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

An external, floor-standing heat only boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW 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.

Is this Firebird boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler rate environmentally?

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

If you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW has been given an ERP rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

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

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

Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler in my home?

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

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only is 12 kW, so which types of property is this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only boiler 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 size is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW occupies a space of 945 mm high by 620 mm wide and 625 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW boiler is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler benefiting from sturdy weatherproof housing that provides reliable protection from the UK’s changeable weather, rusting, and water ingress.

Because they're installed outdoors, you save valuable space inside your home and you'll never hear the boiler in operation. An external boiler is also much easier for a service engineer to access if it breaks down or needs repair.

External boilers cut the risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home and, because the oil it uses for power is stored outside, you greatly reduce the potential for indoor oil leakages which often cause severe damage as well as unpleasant odours that can be very hard to get rid of.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Heatpac 12-18kW was given a 91.6% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW is "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW?

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac 12-18kW covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
