Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

There are hundreds of thousands of properties whose central heating systems are powered by floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20. If you're considering switching from your current floor-standing to a new wall-mounted model to free up space inside your home for you and your family, we can do this work for you. However, when you change the type of boiler in your home, please bear in mind that we often need to replace the piping at extra cost.

However, given the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills as a result of switching, you should be able to recoup your investment in full within a few years.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 is certainly one to consider.

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.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only has an output of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Where will the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 are 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 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 Kitchen C20 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 Kitchen C20 heat only boiler good for the environment?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 Kitchen C20, the ERP rating is "A".

Will I be covered if the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
