Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

You might want to consider the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 for your house or flat if you are looking for a system boiler.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system is 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the level of output from this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 measures 920 mm high and 465 mm wide by a depth of 760 mm.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac 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.

How environmentally friendly is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 was given an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 is "A".

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler comes with 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 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a oil system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 may be an option you should consider.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system boiler is 20 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.


The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 are

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler is 920 mm high, 465 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

Wall-hung boilers have been the most popular installation choice over the last 20 years because they're compact, discreet, and don’t take up much space. Yet there are still hundreds of thousands of UK homeowners whose central heating is provided by floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20, which they're looking to replace to free up more living space. This is possible, however please be aware that there may be an additional cost if we need to replace your existing pipework.

That said, you should be able to fully recoup your investment within a few years thanks to the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 – condensing or non-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 an environmentally friendly choice?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 are 92.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20, the ERP rating is "A".

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

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Firebird Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C20 boiler.
