Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

You may wish to consider installing the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 if you are looking for a heat only 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.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only outputs at a maximum of 44 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 is 945 mm tall, 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 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 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 C44 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93.8% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 C44 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

Am I covered if my Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

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

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 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.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only is 44 kW, so which types of property is this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler 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 C44 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 boiler?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac C44 is 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 C44. 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 C44 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.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 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.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 C44 was given an efficiency rating of 93.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 C44, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C44 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?
