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

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler in 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler is 20 kW, so which types of property would this 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.


The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler is 684 mm tall, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is an external floor-standing heat only boiler which will be installed outside of your home. Other than providing you with more indoor space and reduced noise, it’s much easier for a service engineer to access it if it goes wrong and there’s also a lower risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are shielded in weatherproof housing and because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and odours that are hard to remove.

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

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

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

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.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 was given an efficiency rating of 92.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is "TBC".

Is there a warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

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

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 is certainly one to consider.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only's output is 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 boiler

The measurements of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are 684 mm by 441 mm by 381 mm.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 are installed outdoors saving you valuable space inside your home as well as protecting you from the noise made by a oil boiler during its operation.

Supplied in sturdy, weatherproof housing that protects it from rusting and water ingress, external boilers are much easier for heating engineers to gain access to in case of repair or on maintenance visits.

Because the boiler is not inside your property, carbon monoxide fumes escape into the atmosphere if there is a leak. In addition, there's little to no chance of oil getting into your home if the boiler malfunctions - oil spills inside your property can cause significant damage and leave unpleasant odours that can be very hard to shift.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 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 Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

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.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C20 was rated at 92.5% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.
