Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 might be a suitable option for you.

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.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler be suitable 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".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler has an output of 20 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


Where will the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are 684 mm tall, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

This type of boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access should it develop an issue or need servicing. And as it's installed outdoors, you will save valuable space in your home.

External oil boilers also have a reduced risk of indoor carbon monoxide leakage that is associated with their indoor counterparts. They also limit the potential for damage to your home or the unpleasant and difficult-to-shift odours from leaking oil.

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only rate environmentally?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 has been given a rating of 92.5% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 Popular Boilerhouse C20, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 - regular, system or combi?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 may be an option you should consider.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 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 Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 measures 684 mm high and 441 mm wide by a depth of 381 mm.

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler which runs on oil.

For homeowners concerned about the possibility of oil leakages inside their homes, external boilers provide protection against both indoor oil damage from leakage and the unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours those leaks create. They are supplied with weatherproof housing so can function in all weathers, and they're also much easier for a service engineer to work on.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the heat only Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler energy efficient?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would installing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 has an efficiency rating of 92.5% with a SEDBUK grade 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.
