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

Is this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Would the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only is 26 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only 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.


What are the dimensions of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 boiler?

The size of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 boiler is 930 mm tall, 595 mm wide, and 920 mm deep.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 boiler is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler benefiting from sturdy weatherproof housing that provides reliable protection from the UK’s changeable weather, rusting, and water ingress.

Because they're installed outdoors, you save valuable space inside your home and you'll never hear the boiler in operation. An external boiler is also much easier for a service engineer to access if it breaks down or needs repair.

External boilers cut the risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home and, because the oil it uses for power is stored outside, you greatly reduce the potential for indoor oil leakages which often cause severe damage as well as unpleasant odours that can be very hard to get rid of.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 - 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 has an ERP rating of "A".

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

Which category of boiler does the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 fit into?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only 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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler is 26 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 is 930 mm high by 595 mm wide by 920 mm deep.

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 are housed in a strong weatherproof casing that protects them from rust and water ingress - they also offer much easier access for heating engineers if there is a fault or a repair is needed.

The risk of internal oil leaks and the damage and unpleasant odours they cause is also removed, as is the threat to your family's safety in the event of a carbon monoxide escape (the gas will simply disperse harmlessly into the atmosphere).

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the heat only Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 boiler energy efficient?

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% 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 Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 is "A".
