Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 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 Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only has an output of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 are 920 mm tall, 465 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 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 Slimline Heatpac C20 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 Slimline Heatpac C20 condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more oil.

You will save money on your oil bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

How environmentally friendly is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only?

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

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

The energy efficiency rating of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is 92.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 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 (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.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only has an output of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is 920 mm tall, 465 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 provide homeowners with more indoor space (they're installed outdoors) and reduce noise pollution (you can't really hear them from inside your house). They are also easier for engineers to work on if needed, while carbon monoxide leaks are less likely to pose a safety threat to your family because the gas disperses outside.

This model's weatherproof housing ensures protection from the British climate, reducing the likelihood of water ingress and rusting. And, since the oil is stored outdoors, there is minimal risk of leakage occurring inside your home that can cause significant damage as well as unpleasant odours which are hard to eliminate.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 – non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only considered environmentally friendly?

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.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

If you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.
