Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

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

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 C73 heat only is 73 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice 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 is 847 mm tall, 442 mm wide, and 610 mm deep in size.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your oil each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

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

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

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 is a oil heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only boiler is 73 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

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


Dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 boiler

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 are 847 mm [H] x 442 mm [W] x 610 mm [D].

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 C73. 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 C73 non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

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

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would installing the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 C73 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73?

The Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C73 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
