Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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 the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler from the Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler has an output level of 58 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 boiler is 684 mm high, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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 this Firebird boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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 C58 heat only a good choice for the environment?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would installing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 has an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 is rated "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only is 58 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 measures 684 mm in height and has a width of 441 mm and a depth of 381 mm.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

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 C58 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.
