Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of 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 C58 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only's output level is 58 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice 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 C58 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 are 945 mm [H] x 720 mm [W] x 625 mm [D].

An external, floor-standing heat only boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 frees up valuable space in your home and is easier for an engineer to access when it needs servicing or repair.

They benefit from solid and reliable waterproof housing which protect them from the worst of the British climate as well as from water ingress and rusting.

Internal oil boilers can leak and damage your property. An external boiler limits both the potential for damage as well as the unpleasant odours which result after a leak.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 condensing or non-condensing?

This Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only considered 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 produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 was given an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're 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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only's output is 58 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 measures 945 mm in height by 720 mm in width by 625 mm in depth.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler encased in sturdy waterproof housing to protect it from the worst the British weather can throw at it as well as from water ingress and rust. Being outdoors, these boilers are much easier for an engineer to access in case they need repairing or for a maintenance check.

Being positioned outside the home means the likelihood of an oil leakage damaging your property, leaving unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours, is greatly reduced. In addition, should there be an escape of carbon monoxide, it will dissipate harmlessly outside.

Envirogreen Heatpac C58 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only protect the environment?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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 C58 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 C58 was rated at 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
