Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

You might want to consider the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only the right boiler 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 occupies a space of 945 mm high by 720 mm wide and 625 mm deep.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 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 C26 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 C26 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

If you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 boiler.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler the right choice 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 C26 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 C26 heat only boiler has an output level of 26 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 measures 945 mm in height by 720 mm in width by 625 mm in depth.

Floor-standing, external heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 are installed outdoors and, as a result, they free up space and reduce noise in your home.

Being outdoors also eliminates the risk of oil leakages inside your property which can be extremely damaging and often result in unpleasant and lingering odours that are hard to shift. The risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home is also greatly reduced.

This comes in sturdy weatherproof housing that prevents rust and water ingress, no matter what the British climate presents. And external boilers are much easier for service engineers to access should something go wrong.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 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 C26 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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review 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 C26 is rated as 92.6% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26, the ERP rating is "A".

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
