Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 might be a suitable option for you.

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.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Kitchen C26 heat only's output is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is 847 mm high by 442 mm wide by 610 mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 Kitchen C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a band rating of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 scores "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 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 Kitchen C26 heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 measures 847 mm in height by 442 mm in width by 610 mm in depth.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler good for 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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only be a suitable choice?

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 scores "A".

What is the warranty period on a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Firebird Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 boiler.
