Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 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 C58 heat only outputs at a maximum of 58 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 boiler?

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 boiler is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Does the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only protect the environment?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 C58 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 has a rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 is certainly one to consider.

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 C58 heat only boiler appropriate 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only is 58 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep in size.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

Envirogreen Kitchen C58 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would installing a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 has an ERP rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C58 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
