Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 Slimline 20 heat only's output at 20 kW, which types of property would this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 in millimetres

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only good for the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Slimline 20 was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 is rated "A".

If the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Firebird’s Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Should I install a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only is 20 kW, so which types of property is this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 are

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is choosing the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will choosing to install a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 has been given a rating of 97.4% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 has a rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 20 heat only boiler if it breaks down?
