Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 is certainly one to 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.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler in 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 C26 heat only boiler has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 size

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 stands at 684 mm tall, 441 mm wide and 381 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 don't require you to find space in your home for them and, because they're outside, you'll never hear them working unless you're out in the garden.

They provide much easier access for a heating engineer in case of a fault and their sturdy waterproof covering can handle the British climate as well as prevent rusting and water ingress.

Other benefits include the fact that gas will disperse into the atmosphere outdoors in the event of a carbon monoxide leak. The chances of an oil leak damaging your property are also greatly reduced because the boiler is not installed inside your property.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a 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 Popular Boilerhouse C26 has an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 - regular, system or combi?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 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 C26 heat only boiler is 26 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Will choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of "92.6%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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