Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 might be a suitable option for you.

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 a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 C44 heat only's output at 44 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 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 C44. 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 C44 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more oil.

You will save money on your oil bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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 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 a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only is 44 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler 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 C44 boiler?

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 boiler is 847 mm high, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is this Firebird boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 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 choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would installing a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 was given an efficiency rating of 93.8% and 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 C44 scores "A".

Is this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only covered by a warranty?
