Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 fit into?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

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 Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 have?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 measures 920 mm in height by 465 mm in width by 760 mm in depth.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 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 C26 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 C26 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 - 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.

How does the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 is 92.6% 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 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 Slimline Heatpac C26 has an ERP rating of "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

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.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler has an output rate of 26 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 stands at 920 mm tall, 465 mm wide and 760 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 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 Slimline Heatpac C26 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only?

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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only in your home? Let’s look 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 C26 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 92.6% 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 C26, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Does the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 heat only boiler come with a warranty?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Heatpac C26 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
