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

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new 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 Utility 20kW heat only a suitable choice for 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?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How big is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW?

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler is 925 mm high, 592 mm wide, and 780 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 Utility 20kW. 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 Utility 20kW non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

How environmentally friendly is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW 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.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 97.4% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

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

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

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

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a 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 Utility 20kW heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler is 20 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would recommend that the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler is a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler?

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

There are hundreds of thousands of properties whose central heating systems are powered by floor-standing boilers like the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW. If you're considering switching from your current floor-standing to a new wall-mounted model to free up space inside your home for you and your family, we can do this work for you. However, when you change the type of boiler in your home, please bear in mind that we often need to replace the piping at extra cost.

However, given the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills as a result of switching, you should be able to recoup your investment in full within a few years.

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

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

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

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW was given a 97.4% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW, the ERP rating is "A".

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

A parts and labour warranty of 5 years is included with the Firebird Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme Utility 20kW boiler.
