Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 - standard, combi or system?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is certainly one to consider.

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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 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 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 Heatpac C20 heat only boiler has an output rate of 20 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20's dimensions are 945 mm [H] x 720 mm [W] x 625 mm [D].

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is an external floor-standing heat only boiler which will be installed outside of your home. Other than providing you with more indoor space and reduced noise, it’s much easier for a service engineer to access it if it goes wrong and there’s also a lower risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 are shielded in weatherproof housing and because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and odours that are hard to remove.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

This Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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 the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 was given an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 boiler through PlumbProud.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac C20 - system, regular or combi?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How big is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 measures 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

There are several benefits to choosing an external, floor-standing heat only boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20. External boilers free up space indoors and reduce internal noise pollution to almost zero. They are also easier for an engineer to access if a problem develops and an external boiler reduces the chances of carbon monoxide leaking into your property.

External boilers are fitted in weatherproof housing and are perfect for homes that require oil-fired heating because they are not connected to mains gas. Leakage is always a possibility with oil boilers but, as this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler is fitted outside your home, there is likely to be much less damage to your property if it leaks and no odour of oil in your home.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only good for the environment?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

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.

Will choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine 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 Heatpac C20 is rated as 92.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is rated "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
