Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is one you may wish to consider.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 20 kW?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Where will the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 fit in my house?

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 are installed outdoors saving you valuable space inside your home as well as protecting you from the noise made by a oil boiler during its operation.

Supplied in sturdy, weatherproof housing that protects it from rusting and water ingress, external boilers are much easier for heating engineers to gain access to in case of repair or on maintenance visits.

Because the boiler is not inside your property, carbon monoxide fumes escape into the atmosphere if there is a leak. In addition, there's little to no chance of oil getting into your home if the boiler malfunctions - oil spills inside your property can cause significant damage and leave unpleasant odours that can be very hard to shift.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would installing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

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 Heatpac C20 are 92.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 is "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20

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

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 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 C20 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.

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

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only 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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 was awarded an efficiency rating of "92.5%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C20 heat only boiler?

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