Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 is a oil heat only boiler.

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 the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only outputs at a maximum of 44 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 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 C44 dimensions

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler measures 684 mm [H] x 441 mm [W] x 381 mm [D] in size.

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 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 C44 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 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.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler?

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.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Popular Boilerhouse C44 was given an efficiency rating of 93.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 has an ERP rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler through PlumbProud.

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 - standard, combi or system?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only's output at 44 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler?

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.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.
