Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

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 experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26

The dimensions of the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 are 945 mm [H] x 720 mm [W] x 625 mm [D].

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is an external, floor-standing system boiler which runs on oil.

For homeowners concerned about the possibility of oil leakages inside their homes, external boilers provide protection against both indoor oil damage from leakage and the unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours those leaks create. They are supplied with weatherproof housing so can function in all weathers, and they're also much easier for a service engineer to work on.

Envirogreen Systempac C26 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

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

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

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.

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

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.6% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

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

If the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Firebird Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 boiler.

Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 is one you may wish to consider.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

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.

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 C26 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

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

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 System boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26?

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26's dimensions are 945 mm [H] x 720 mm [W] x 625 mm [D].

If you would like to reduce the space your boiler takes up in your home or you don't like the noise of an internal oil heater, you may want to consider the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 - an external system boiler which is fitted outside your property.

Supplied in sturdy weatherproof housing designed to resist rusting and water ingress, an external boiler is much easier for a service engineer to work on if there is a fault or it needs repairing. External boilers also reduce the risk of carbon monoxide leakages inside your home.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system an energy-efficient boiler?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 was given a 92.6% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 scores "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Firebird Envirogreen Systempac C26 boiler through PlumbProud.
