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

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

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 20 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20

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

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 offer homeowners more indoor space and, unlike their indoor counterparts, they don't create internal noise pollution.

They also provide service engineers with much easier access and are supplied with a sturdy waterproof casing to protect the boiler from rusting and water ingress.

An external boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 carries a much-reduced risk of any carbon monoxide entering your home and, because the oil is stored outdoors, there is little to no risk of internal oil leakage damaging the inside of the house and the unpleasant odours that oil leaks cause.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

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

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

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.

Would installing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 Slimline Heatpac C20 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 92.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.

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 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which 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 Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only is 20 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 boiler?

The measurements of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 are 920 mm by 465 mm by 760 mm.

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 are safer as the oil it uses for fuel is not stored inside your home meaning there is little to no chance of an internal leak occurring which can damage your home and leave oily odours that become difficult to eradicate.

External boilers free up space in your home and because they're outside, you rarely hear them working. In addition, a service engineer can quickly fix it if it has problems, and there is a lower chance of carbon monoxide entering your home.

Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 Slimline Heatpac C20 was awarded an efficiency rating of "92.5%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 is "TBC".

How many years' warranty does the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 heat only come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C20 boiler through PlumbProud.
