Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only is 44 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler is 945 mm high, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 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 C44 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93.8% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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 C44 is rated "A".

Does a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler a suitable option 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".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler has an output of 44 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 is 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep in size.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 don't require you to find space in your home for them and, because they're outside, you'll never hear them working unless you're out in the garden.

They provide much easier access for a heating engineer in case of a fault and their sturdy waterproof covering can handle the British climate as well as prevent rusting and water ingress.

Other benefits include the fact that gas will disperse into the atmosphere outdoors in the event of a carbon monoxide leak. The chances of an oil leak damaging your property are also greatly reduced because the boiler is not installed inside your property.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your oil bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 was rated at 93.8% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 C44, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
