Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW might be an option for you to consider.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Whether this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only boiler is right for where you live 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 of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW measures 930 mm high and 595 mm wide by a depth of 760 mm.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW in the UK, although wall-hung boilers are now the obvious choice for most homeowners wanting more living space. It is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with one that is compact if you'd like to but you should consider that much of the pipework will need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Eventually, your savings on oil bills will pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW is a condensing oil boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your oil bills.

How energy efficient is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures 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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW is "A".

Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW is a oil heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Would the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only boiler be suitable 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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only's output at 26 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW is 930 mm tall, 595 mm wide, and 760 mm deep.

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only considered environmentally friendly?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "97.4%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Boilerhouse 26kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 5 years after installation.
