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

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

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 might be an option for you 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 choose a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler 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.

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 C26 heat only outputs at a maximum of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

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


Dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 boiler

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 boiler is 684 mm high, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 are housed in a sturdy weatherproof casing to protect them from the elements, water ingress, and the risk of rust. Heating engineers also find external boilers much easier to access on repair and maintenance visits.

As the boiler is outdoors, there is less risk of an oil leakage into your home that can cause significant damage and leave your property with an unpleasant, hard-to-remove odour. In addition, there is far less danger to you and your family from carbon monoxide leakage as, in the event of a fault, the gas will disperse in the outside atmosphere.

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

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on oil.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

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

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the 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 C26 was rated at 92.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

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

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 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 standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

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

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only boiler 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.


Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 dimensions

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 feature weatherproof housing - this means they can be installed outdoors to free up valuable space in your home. An external boiler also minimises indoor noise pollution and reduces the risk of carbon monoxide leaching into your property.

Oil boilers can and do leak. However, when a boiler is fitted externally, any leakage is less likely to damage your property and won't leave an unpleasant odour that is hard to remove. It is also worth remembering that an external boiler will be easier for an engineer to access if a problem develops.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 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 Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only good for the environment?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% 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.

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 Popular Boilerhouse C26 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C26 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
