Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 - system, regular or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 C26 system's output at 26 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 measures 920 mm high and 465 mm wide by a depth of 760 mm.

External floor-standing system boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 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 Systempac C26 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.

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

We recommend the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 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 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.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 scored an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 has a rating of "A" .

What length of warranty does the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 - standard, combi or system?

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

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System 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 Systempac C26 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 System boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 boiler?

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 is an external floor-standing system 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 Systempac 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.

Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 – condensing or non-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.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system?

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.

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.

Will installing a Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 has been given a rating of 92.6% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 Systempac C26 has an ERP rating of "A".

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Slimline Systempac C26 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
