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?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 might be a suitable option for you.

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 regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard 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 temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

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

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 measures 684 mm in height by 441 mm in width by 381 mm in depth.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 are installed outdoors saving you valuable space inside your home as well as protecting you from the noise made by a oil boiler during its operation.

Supplied in sturdy, weatherproof housing that protects it from rusting and water ingress, external boilers are much easier for heating engineers to gain access to in case of repair or on maintenance visits.

Because the boiler is not inside your property, carbon monoxide fumes escape into the atmosphere if there is a leak. In addition, there's little to no chance of oil getting into your home if the boiler malfunctions - oil spills inside your property can cause significant damage and leave unpleasant odours that can be very hard to shift.

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

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 C73 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.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only rate environmentally?

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

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only be a suitable choice?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 was awarded an efficiency rating of "97.4%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 C73 is rated "A".

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

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 might be a suitable option for you.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

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

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 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 the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73?

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 boiler measures 684 mm [H] x 441 mm [W] x 381 mm [D] in size.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 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.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

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.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 C73 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73, the ERP rating is "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

On the Firebird Envirogreen Popular Boilerhouse C73, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
