Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 may be an option you should consider.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 58 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, 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.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 boiler measures 945 mm [H] x 720 mm [W] x 625 mm [D] in size.

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 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.

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

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 choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

Will choosing to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58?

Firebird offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is a oil heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 boiler?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 is an external floor-standing heat only boiler intended for placement outside the home. In addition to providing you with more indoor space and reducing noise, this makes it easier for a service technician to access it if something goes wrong. The chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home is also greatly reduced.

Floor-standing external boilers are housed in a weatherproof covering allowing them to be placed outside your home with only a minimal risk of rusting. Using external boilers is also safer because there will be less chance of oil leaks in your home which can cause significant internal damage and leave you with an oily odour that is hard to remove.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 condensing or non-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.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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 the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 C58 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58, the ERP rating is "A".

Am I covered if the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C58 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
