Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only Envirogreen Kitchen would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep in size.

Compact wall-hung boilers have been the most popular boiler installation choice over the past two decades. If you have a floor-standing boiler in your home like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 and you want to replace it with a wall-mounted unit so that you and your family have more space to live, this is possible - however, please note that there may be an additional premium on fitting costs if your current pipework needs replacing.

The savings you make on your oil bills over the coming years will cover the cost of installation completely.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler 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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 has been given a rating of 92.6% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 Kitchen C26 is "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Should I choose a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler 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 Kitchen C26 heat only's output at 26 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 are

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep in size.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 - 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 Kitchen C26 heat only protect the environment?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 was rated at 92.6% with 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 C26, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 boiler?
