Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Systempac C20 - system, regular or combi?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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 Systempac C20 system boiler the right choice 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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system is 20 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 System boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 boiler?

The measurements of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 are 945 mm by 720 mm by 625 mm.

External floor-standing system boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 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 Systempac C20 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 Systempac C20 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92.5% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Firebird’s Envirogreen Systempac C20 - system, regular or combi?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your oil than you need to.

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

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the level of output from this Firebird Envirogreen 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.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20?

The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 boiler is 945 mm high, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

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

The Firebird Envirogreen 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.

Does the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system protect the environment?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 is rated as 92.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

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

The parts and labour warranty on the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
