Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 fit into?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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 C26 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler is 26 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep in size.

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler which runs on oil.

For homeowners concerned about the possibility of oil leakages inside their homes, external boilers provide protection against both indoor oil damage from leakage and the unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours those leaks create. They are supplied with weatherproof housing so can function in all weathers, and they're also much easier for a service engineer to work on.

Envirogreen Heatpac C26 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on 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.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 is "TBC".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 boiler?

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

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 a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C26 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.
