Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting 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".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system is 26 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen 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.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 measures 945 mm tall, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

Floor-standing external system boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 are safer as the oil it uses for fuel is not stored inside your home meaning there is little to no chance of an internal leak occurring which can damage your home and leave oily odours that become difficult to eradicate.

External boilers free up space in your home and because they're outside, you rarely hear them working. In addition, a service engineer can quickly fix it if it has problems, and there is a lower chance of carbon monoxide entering your home.

Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 was given an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is "A".

Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of 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.

Would the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 has the following dimensions - 945 mm high, 720 mm wide, and 625 mm deep.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is an external floor-standing system boiler intended for placement outside the home. In addition to providing you with more indoor space and reducing noise, this makes it easier for a service technician to access it if something goes wrong. The chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home is also greatly reduced.

Floor-standing external boilers are housed in a weatherproof covering allowing them to be placed outside your home with only a minimal risk of rusting. Using external boilers is also safer because there will be less chance of oil leaks in your home which can cause significant internal damage and leave you with an oily odour that is hard to remove.

Envirogreen Systempac C26 – condensing or non-condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

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 C26 is "A".

Am I covered if my Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system boiler breaks down?

On the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
