Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

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

Like heat only boilers, system boilers require a hot water cylinder to work - the cylinder stores and keeps water warm for use throughout the day. Hot water can be distributed to multiple showers and taps simultaneously, making system boilers suitable for larger families and properties with more than one bathroom.

System boilers differ from standard boilers in that they do not require a cold water tank, making them suitable for properties with no loft space or if you are planning a loft conversion. As the boiler's major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and no water tank is required, system boilers are easier to install than regular boilers.

This type of boiler does not heat water instantly like a combi boiler - instead, you need to use the control panel to set the times when you want heating and hot water to be available for your home.

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

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.


What size is a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 boiler?

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

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac oil Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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.

If you decide to install a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are searching for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 is certainly one to consider.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

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

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

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

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 system boiler in would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Being outdoors, these boilers are much easier for an engineer to access in case they need repairing or for a maintenance check.

Being positioned outside the home means the likelihood of an oil leakage damaging your property, leaving unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours, is greatly reduced. In addition, should there be an escape of carbon monoxide, it will dissipate harmlessly outside.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C20 condensing or non-condensing?
