Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Firebird’s Envirogreen Kitchen C20 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler suitable for 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 Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 boiler?

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

While a large number of properties in the UK still feature floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20, the more compact wall-hung models are now the preferred options for most homeowners keen for more living space for themselves and their families. It is possible to replace your floor-standing unit with a wall-hung and more compact boiler but please note that much of the pipework could need replacing, making the overall cost of installation higher.

Your new compact will save you money on your oil bills every quarter, however, and those savings should cover the costs within a few years.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 is rated as 92.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 breaks down?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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 a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

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?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler is appropriate 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 measures 847 mm in height by 442 mm in width by 610 mm in depth.

Because of their convenient and compact size, wall-hung boilers have become the popular choice for homeowners over the last 20 years. Yet while hundreds of thousands of UK properties still use floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20, many consider switching to wall-mounted units to create extra living space.

We can replace your floor-standing boiler if you wish but there may be an additional cost if we have to replace much of your existing pipework. The savings you make on your oil bills every quarter should repay that investment within a few years.

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

This Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 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 Kitchen C20 heat only considered environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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 Kitchen C20 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 Kitchen C20 was given a 92.5% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 heat only boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C20 boiler through PlumbProud.
