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

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 - combi, system or regular boiler?

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

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

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 44 kW?

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


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler?

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 are 684 mm tall, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 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 C44 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 C44 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

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

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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 C44 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

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 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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 C44 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

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

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for oil than is necessary.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler has an output level of 44 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 have?

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 boiler is 684 mm high, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 offer homeowners more indoor space and, unlike their indoor counterparts, they don't create internal noise pollution.

They also provide service engineers with much easier access and are supplied with a sturdy waterproof casing to protect the boiler from rusting and water ingress.

An external boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 carries a much-reduced risk of any carbon monoxide entering your home and, because the oil is stored outdoors, there is little to no risk of internal oil leakage damaging the inside of the house and the unpleasant odours that oil leaks cause.

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

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

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

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

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 was given a 93.8% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

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

What warranty does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C44 heat only boiler come with?
