Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for oil than is necessary.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler has an output level of 44 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 boiler?

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

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

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.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

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

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C44 heat only boiler has an output level of 44 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?
