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

Is this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

This Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler has an output level of 20 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

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


Making space for the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW measures 925 mm tall, 592 mm wide, and 780 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW condensing or non-condensing?

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 Utility 20kW 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.

Does the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only protect the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW scored an efficiency rating of 97.4% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW is "A".

Am I covered if the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler breaks down?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.

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

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

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Should I install a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW 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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW have?

Firebird’s Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW is 925 mm tall, 592 mm wide, and 780 mm deep.

Because of their convenient and compact size, wall-hung boilers have become the popular choice for homeowners over the last 20 years. Yet while hundreds of thousands of UK properties still use floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW, many consider switching to wall-mounted units to create extra living space.

We can replace your floor-standing boiler if you wish but there may be an additional cost if we have to replace much of your existing pipework. The savings you make on your oil bills every quarter should repay that investment within a few years.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

How does the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only rate environmentally?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would choosing the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 5 years after installation.
