Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

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

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, which is normally situated in an airing cupboard or similar. However, unlike heat only boilers, system boilers don’t require a separate cold water tank, meaning they are a preferred option for some homeowners, especially those planning a loft conversion in the future.

They use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators and installation is often easier from scratch with heat only boilers as there’s one less component (the water tank) to purchase and fit.

System boilers also need programming for heat and hot water and don’t offer this instantly. However, the cylinder can keep water hot for use afterwards so you shouldn’t have to wait around for your bath water so long as you set your timer and have it on long enough to heat the water you’ll need for the day.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system boiler suitable 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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system's output level is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 is 920 mm tall, 465 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

An external, floor-standing system boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 frees up valuable space in your home and is easier for an engineer to access when it needs servicing or repair.

They benefit from solid and reliable waterproof housing which protect them from the worst of the British climate as well as from water ingress and rusting.

Internal oil boilers can leak and damage your property. An external boiler limits both the potential for damage as well as the unpleasant odours which result after a leak.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 non-condensing or condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 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 Systempac C26 system a good choice for the environment?

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.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26, the ERP rating is "A".

Does a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system boiler come with a warranty period?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler to new customers.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

If you are searching for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 is certainly one to consider.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Should I install a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system boiler in my house or apartment?

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 C26 system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler is 920 mm high, 465 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

External, floor-standing system boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 feature weatherproof housing - this means they can be installed outdoors to free up valuable space in your home. An external boiler also minimises indoor noise pollution and reduces the risk of carbon monoxide leaching into your property.

Oil boilers can and do leak. However, when a boiler is fitted externally, any leakage is less likely to damage your property and won't leave an unpleasant odour that is hard to remove. It is also worth remembering that an external boiler will be easier for an engineer to access if a problem develops.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 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 Systempac C26 system?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system in your property would be an environmentally friendly 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 C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

Is this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system covered by a warranty?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
