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

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

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

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

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 occupies a space of 684 mm high by 441 mm wide and 381 mm deep.

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 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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 C58 heat only?

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.

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

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 C58 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating 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 C58 has an ERP rating of "A".

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

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler in my home?

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 C58 heat only has an output of 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 be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 - size in millimetres

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 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.

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

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 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 C58 has an ERP rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58 breaks down?

On the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C58, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
