Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is a oil heat only boiler.

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 the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 73 kW?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 - size in millimetres

Firebird’s Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is 684 mm tall, 441 mm wide, and 381 mm deep.

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 operate reliably and consistently outdoors because of their solid weatherproof housing designed to protect against rusting and water ingress. And, because they're not installed inside your property, you save valuable indoor space.

Internal oil boilers can leak and, when they do, they damage your property and leave unpleasant odours which are hard to remove. An external boiler eliminates the risk of indoor oil leaks and the danger of carbon monoxide getting into your home is also greatly reduced. An external boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access when it requires servicing or repair.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is a condensing oil boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your oil bills.

Is choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler 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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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 - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only is 73 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 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 C73 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is 684 mm high by 441 mm wide by 381 mm deep.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 don't take up space in the home (they're fitted outside) and it's almost impossible to hear them when in operation (unlike internal boilers). They're much easier for a service technician to access if something goes wrong and there's less chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

This Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler features weatherproof housing meaning a minimal risk of rusting and water ingress. In addition, as the boiler is outside your home, there is a lower chance of oil leaking into your property, which can cause damage and difficult-to-remove odours.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 C73 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% 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.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

Firebird’s Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
