Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 might be an option for you to consider.

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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only's output at 73 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 measures 945 mm in height and has a width of 720 mm and a depth of 625 mm.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

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

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.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 was given a 97.4% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading 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 C73, the ERP rating is "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 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 C73 heat only is 73 kW, so which types of property is this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 boiler

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

Wall-hung boilers have been the most popular installation choice over the last 20 years because they're compact, discreet, and don’t take up much space. Yet there are still hundreds of thousands of UK homeowners whose central heating is provided by floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73, which they're looking to replace to free up more living space. This is possible, however please be aware that there may be an additional cost if we need to replace your existing pipework.

That said, you should be able to fully recoup your investment within a few years thanks to the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills.

Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Does the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only protect the environment?

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.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

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

If the Firebird Envirogreen Heatpac C73 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?
