Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 - regular, system or combi?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

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 C73 heat only's output is 73 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 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 C73

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 is 945 mm high by 720 mm wide by 625 mm deep.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 has a rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler?

On the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 is a oil heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only be a suitable boiler 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 C73 heat only is 73 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 dimensions

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 is 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep in size.

Wall-hung boilers have become the preferred choice for homeowners in the UK over the last 20 years, but hundreds of thousands of homes still use bulkier floor-standing models for their central heating. It is possible to replace your floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted one if you wish so that you and your family have more living space. But we must advise you that you may also have to pay to replace some or all of your existing pipework.

You should however be able to recoup this cost in full after a few years because of the savings you make each quarter on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 C73 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% 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.

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 is "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
