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

Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 - a regular, combi or system 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.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler from the Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is 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 is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 - size in millimetres

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 is 930 mm in height, 595 mm in width and 920 mm in depth.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

This type of boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access should it develop an issue or need servicing. And as it's installed outdoors, you will save valuable space in your home.

External oil boilers also have a reduced risk of indoor carbon monoxide leakage that is associated with their indoor counterparts. They also limit the potential for damage to your home or the unpleasant and difficult-to-shift odours from leaking oil.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 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.

How does the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will installing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 was given an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 has an ERP Heat 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.

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 26 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

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

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler in would be 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 in millimetres

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

This type of boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access should it develop an issue or need servicing. And as it's installed outdoors, you will save valuable space in your home.

External oil boilers also have a reduced risk of indoor carbon monoxide leakage that is associated with their indoor counterparts. They also limit the potential for damage to your home or the unpleasant and difficult-to-shift odours from leaking oil.

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

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only a good choice for the environment?

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

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Slimline 26 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

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