Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 - standard, combi or system?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 boiler 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 (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler in my home?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only is 73 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 has the following dimensions - 847 mm high, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The oil bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 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.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only rate environmentally?

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

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 C73 was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73.

If the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 boiler.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Kitchen C73 - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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

This Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

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 C73 heat only boiler has an output level of 73 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, most homeowners in the UK have shifted from floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 to more compact, wall-hung units to free up space. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact but you should be aware that much of the pipework might need replacing in addition to the cost of the boiler and installation.

There will be a significant one-time investment here - the savings on your oil bills will eventually pay for it but this will take a few years.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 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.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

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 C73 scored an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

Firebird offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73.
