Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Should I choose a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system's output at 20 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20's dimensions are 920 mm [H] x 465 mm [W] x 760 mm [D].

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 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.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler breaks down?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers are very popular for properties with limited or no loft space or when homeowners want to keep the space for a loft conversion. This is because, unlike heat only boilers, they don’t require a cold-water tank - however, system boilers do need a hot water cylinder (often installed in an airing or landing cupboard).

Instead of the traditional cold-water tanks, system boilers use their built-in circulating pumps to heat the water needed for your taps and radiators. This also makes them an easier choice for engineers to install as there is one less large component to find space for and fit.

Like a regular boiler, you need to use a control panel to control a system boiler. Set the times when you want central heating and hot water to be available, such as in the morning when there might be greater demand for showers, and it will be there. Although hot water is not available on-demand like with a combi boiler, once the water has been heated it will stay in the hot water cylinder until it’s used up.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler in my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System boiler be appropriate for?

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


Where will the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 are 920 mm [H] x 465 mm [W] x 760 mm [D].

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 was given an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 is rated "A".

If the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
